Bridging the Social Distance

For this episode I interview Barbara James, a resident at the Village of Riverside Glen.  Barbara is another new resident who moved during this pandemic, arriving straight from a hospital, and subsequently has had a lot of quarantining.  And she admits it would be nice to get to meet some people and make some new friends.  But despite this, she’s kept a fantastic disposition, and laughs her way through stories of her youth in Vancouver, her children, her love for her late husband, and the love she found for Guelph.  Thank you Barbara for sharing your story!This interview was originally recorded on August 11th Get on the email list at bridgingthesocialdistance.substack.com

Yours Truly Johnny Dollar 1950-06-29 055 The Barbara James Matter

Yesteryear Old Time Radio

Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar was a radio drama about a "fabulous" freelance insurance investigator "with the action-packed expense account." The show aired on CBS Radio from January 14, 1949 to September 30, 1962. There were 811 episodes in the 12-year run, and more than 720 still exist today. Each story started with a phone call from an insurance executive, calling on Johnny to investigate an unusual claim. Each story required Johnny to travel to some distant locale, usually within the United States but sometimes abroad, where he was almost always threatened with personal danger in the course of his investigations. Johnny's file on each case was usually referenced as a "matter," as in "The Silver Blue Matter" or "The Forbes Matter." Later episodes were more fanciful, with titles like "The Wayward Trout Matter" and "The Price of Fame Matter" (the latter featuring a rare guest-star appearance: Vincent Price). Each story was recounted in flashback, as Johnny listed each line item from his expense account. Most of the items related to transportation and lodging, but no incidental expense was too small for Johnny to itemize, as in "Item nine, 10 cents. Aspirin. I needed them." Johnny usually stuck to business, but would engage in romantic dalliances with women he encountered in his travels; later episodes gave Johnny a steady girlfriend, Betty Lewis. Johnny's precious recreational time was usually spent fishing, and it was not uncommon for Johnny's clients to exploit this favorite pastime in convincing him to take on a job. The episodes generally finished with Johnny tallying up his account, making final remarks on the report, and traveling back to Hartford, Connecticut, where he was based.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/daniel-lantz/message

Barbara James Interview

Book Talk Radio Club's show

I’m talking to author Barbara James about her new book Going Home: Roger. This is the second book in her sweet and sensuous romance series. Roger M. Young turned his back on his conservative upbringing when he left home at eighteen and joined the Coast Guard. He was quite happy with his life. When he served as a groomsman at his best friend Rick Santelli's wedding, dating Denise Perigault, Rick's teenaged sister-in-law, was the last thing on his mind. And she felt the same way too. Having recently finished her junior year in high school, she was just too young. But once she starts college in the same town where he is stationed, they might change their minds. If Roger wants to date a younger and more traditional woman, he has to figure out whether he is up to the challenge. Can he recall the lessons he learned before he left home? This is a sweet romance with strong elements of sensuality in a closed-door setting.
