Blaine's Travel Club presents WBTC - The Club, Classic Radio Programs

I would love your guidance!

I want to begin regularly scheduled Classic Radio Programs, 7 Days a Week from 9 pm-10 pm, tell me what you think. Would you suggest a better time slot? My logic is, just before bed or going out to party!

I've compiled a complete list of Classic Radio Programs that I have access to, with 12 Categories, containing 546 show titles and a combined total of 38,098 episodes, please pick the shows that you would love to hear (or hear again!).

Click the red envelope button in the bottom right corner of this page and enter your name, contact information & the show(s) that you would love to hear.



PERSONAL OBSERVATION:
I was born in 1951, and while compiling this list, I was completely amazed to discover how many Televisions shows that I enjoyed while growing up were once Radio Programs that transitioned to Television, a lot with the same title & most with the same actors!

Also, while growing up and being so engrossed in Television, I had no idea that some radio programs continued to air well into the mid 1960s.

Even CBS introduced the "CBS Radio Mystery Theater" on January 6, 1974 and it ran until December 31, 1982 with a total of 1,484 episodes!



NOTE: The episode count listed here does not necessarily mean how many episodes were made or aired, only how many have been found in good condition and suitable for air play.

If you have access to additional episodes or better quality ones, of any show, I would love it if you would consider donating a copy to WBTC - The Club. For each episode you donate, I will give you 1,000 Travel Points for your kindness. Thank you!
