Rest in Peace, Stewart Wright

For those who are not subscribers to the Internet OTR Digest, Stewart Wright passed away in his
apartment sometime before Thanksgiving of natural causes.

He was a good friend to me, a good friend to this forum, and one helluva OTR researcher.

The description of the May 30, 1935 program in J. David Goldin's index is Yeah, I tend to discount his "database." But then, he did sue a bunch of legitimate dealers (and friends of mine), so there's that. Update: found at least a portion of the program in the Pacifca Radio Archives. It is unclear ...

Re: America's Town Meeting of the Air - May 30, 1935

That episode was titled "Which Way America?" Jerry Haendiges lists the complete title as, "WHICH WAY AMERICA - FASCISM, SOCIALISM, COMMUNISM, DEMOCRACY" and he also lists it as n/a, which means he doesn't have it. It is clearly not lost if you have a piece of it, but if Jerry doesn't have it in his...

Ok, I now know exactly why it happened - and thank Mike Wheeler for nudging me off my distractions to track it down. The "(" and ")" characters in the URIs are being interpreted by the forum software as something different than simple text. While admittedly those character are technically permitted ...

Re: LEILA HEARS A BURGLAR (1945-03-18) episode found

(Mods, I posted this earlier, but the page is blank and won't load. Also did a message in the re-creation post on pg 4, and that too is now blank.) I see that. Not sure why it happened...looks like there's a problem with the database. I'll dig around tomorrow in the bowels of the forum and see if I...

I'm going to be a contrarian. While I appreciate the 15-min 5/week episodes (as an aside, I was born a few hours after the fourth episode of "The Clinton Matter" aired on the Ides of March), it's more for the story than the star; nothing wrong with Bailey, but if you listen to the 30-min shows, he's...

As I proudly mentioned elsewhere, my daughter Kate is, I believe, the youngest contributing author to this project. And she allowed her aging father to bask in her reflected glory and collaborate with her. ;)
