★ The Top 100 Classic Radio Shows PDF / Epub ✪ Author Carl Amari – Tactical-player.co.uk

The Top 100 Classic Radio Shows I give it three stars because while the authors included most of what would be considered the top 100 radio shows by a lot of radio historians, they also missed a few shows that should have been included instead of others I really don t understand why they included an obscure show like The Adventures of Archie Andrews , based on the comic strip, but didn t include The Easy Aces , a show written by and starring Goodman Ace who was a respected radio and TV writer, and his wife Jane While not as well known today as Fibber McGee and Molly , the quality was on the same level and also as with Vic and Sade But the most egregious omission was Arthur Godfrey Time in the Variety category Godfrey was THE giant of radio from the mid forties to early fifties, equivalent to Oprah in TV They should have also included a category for soap operas, and included soaps like One Man s Family , Ma Perkins , The Romance of Helen Trent and Just Plain Bill , which were some of the longest running radio shows They did include Stella Dallas in the drama category, but that was also a soap opera The selection of shows on the CD s are ok, and it does have an episode of The Eddie Cantor Show which I don t think are available on CD, but for the episode of Suspense , I really wished they would have selected Sorry, Wrong Number which was the most famous episode of that series.

I am disgusted and dismayed that the authors omitted Gene Autry s Melody Ranch program on CBS Radio Autry s Melody Ranch program always beat Roy Rogers Show in the ratings and was much popular on radio than Rogers How could they omit Gene Autry Blasphemy The authors proudly proclaim that Rogers has three stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, wow, but Gene Autry is the ONLY star who has FIVE stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.I hope to return the book or sell it Do not like it.
