Old Time Radio - May 2018

May 3, 2018
Old Time Radio Researchers Group

In May we'll include some of the plays of Arch Oboler.  Arch Oboler (December 7, 1909 – March 19, 1987) was an American playwright, screenwriter, novelist, producer, and director who was active in radio, films, theater, and television. He generated much attention with his radio scripts, particularly the horror series Lights Out, and his work in radio remains the outstanding period of his career. Praised as one of broadcasting's top talents, he is regarded today as a key innovator of radio drama.

Old Time Radio - April 2018

Mar 30, 2018

In April WXXI Reachout Radio premieres episodes of the radio series X Minus One, which aired on NBC from 24 April 55 until 9 January 58 for a total of 124 episodes with one pilot or audition story. There was a revival of the series in 1973 when radio was attempting to bring back radio drama and it lasted until 1975. The show occupied numerous time slots through out its run in the 50's and thus was never able to generate a large following.
