Jeff Kallman's excellent The Easy Ace: A Journal of Classic Radio
is a wonderful place to spend hours on end, rediscovering the Golden Age of Radio

is filled with a wonderful new vignette about Golden Age Radio History.

I Don't Know What This Has To Do With Classic Radio, But . . .

Somewhere in the middle of a rather arduous week, enough to have kept me from my regular musings, I couldn't shake off a thought. Since the 2000 elections, and the long-familiar map of red and blue states, areas thought to be Republican strongholds are known as Red areas and areas thought to be Democratic strongholds are known as Blue areas. What a difference fiftysomething years makes. Republicans have gone from believing better dead than Red to better Red than dead. And the Democrats, Capitol Hill majority on the threshold of being sworn in, seem bent enough on inspiring enough of us to start singing the blues. Or, swearing a blue streak.
