An Introduction to Old Time Radio...



If you want to know about Old Time Radio but you don't know where to start, this is the right page to come to. If you think you are too old to enjoy this medium of entertainment, you are not. Even though the Golden Age of Radio lasted roughly from 1930 to 1950, most of the shows are enjoyable by everyone at any age. This was what people did before there was television.

The programs are very similar to television. There were dramas, situation comedies, game shows, soap operas, news, sports, musical shows, variety shows, and even movies. The big difference between radio and TV is that the pictures on radio are better...

How can I say that? When you watch television, you don't have to create a picture. It's already done for you. With radio, you are responsible for creating the image in your mind.

And you don't have to keep your eyes focused on the radio, either. You can listen to radio while cooking, driving a car, or sitting on the beach, watching people.

This site will not offer any recordings of radio programs, however, it will offer links to websites. For right now, go to this website to see some of the stuff that's out there.
