Old Time Radio

Radio station CHML in Hamilton broadcasts "old time radio" shows every night and I must say I love listening to them.

Some nights its comedy shows like the Jack Benny Program, Fibber McGee and Molly or The Life of Riley. Other nights feature westerns: Gunsmoke, Have Gun Will Travel or The Cisco Kid.

But my favourites are the detective shows. It's great listening to the adventures of hard boiled PIs like Richard Diamond, Johnny Dollar and Sam Spade.

And the good news is I found an Internet site, where I can download lots of these old shows!

Why do I like these ancient radio dramas?

Maybe it's because, unlike so many shows today, none of them promote a left wing agenda.

One of my personal favorites is "The Whistler"

A newer radio show could be 'Da boyz in da hood smoke dem pigs.'
