Remember those old radio shows from the late 40s & early 50s

by taboma - 6/9/06 1:36 AM

Any memorabilia about these early radio shows?:

The Shadow (What evil lurks in the hearts of man?)
The Fat Man (Steps on the scale. His weight? 380 lbs.)
Baby Snooks
Green Hornet (Kato his side-kick)
Dick Tracy
LUX Theatre (Became Lux Video Theatre on TV.)
Captain Midnight (What was his son's and daughter's names?)
Amos & Andy Show
Gangbusters (Machine gun sounds opening up the broadcast)
Roy Rogers, Dale and Tonto ("Kemosabe" and Pinto)
Innersanctomb (Squeeky door opening up the broadcast)

I can only think of a few right now.
What can anyone list and any links to them?

I did happen to like that early TV show called "LIGHTS OUT!"
Spookey-kind of a show when I was about 14 years old.
(The announcer was? The sponsor?)

Sid Ceasar and Imogine Coca were on of my favorites as well as
Red Skelton and The Ernie Kovak Show. (Ernie Kovak was-ahead of his time. Remember his beautiful wife? She was a model for Murial Cigars.
"Why don't you pick me up and smoke me sometime?"
Edie Adams? What a beauty.)

Is there any way to listen to some links and clips from these old shows?
Would be fun to hear them again.

EdH, are you able to set up some links?
Anyone else?

What are your favorite early broadcasts and TV shows?

Thanks to all,

-Kevin
