Wow, I mean wow... did I mention wow! What a unique podcast experience. I've never heard anything quite like it, and that's a very good thing! At first listen it can be kind of overwhelming, there is just so much going on. By the third show or so that I listened to, I was kind of hooked. Well done! I love the retrobots, I especially love their name. Your podcast does a brilliant job of mixing new technology including the previously mentioned retrobots to introduce a whole new generation to OTR.

Amos and Andy - Andy The Body Guard. 520315. (retro313).

Podcast cover

The cast members all sit around to complain about Andy's latest failed attempt at marriage. No steady job, no prospects, always chasing after several girls at once. Later in the lodge hall, Andy talks with Kingfish about his failed attempt at getting married. Particularly with his relationship with Madam Queen. What ever happened to old Madam Queen anyway? Andy doesn't care much, his main concern is getting a job as he reads the classifieds with Kingfish.
 
Elsewhere, a well to do man talks with his woman about leaving town, and the need to hire a driver for her while he's gone. Guess who? It's Madam Queen with her new man. I have a feeling that some paths are about to recross.
 
The man stops in to talk to Andy, but Kingfish is on hand to help handle the business management of his friend. What is needed is a man who is going to be unappealing, and keep Madam Queen from having a roving ye. After seeing Andy, the man is satisfied.
 
Later, Andy drives up in the fancy new Cadillac. Andy begins to get a feeling of deja vu when he recognizes a hint of perfume in the car. Kingfish finds a wallet, and the two go through it and learn that Andy's charge is to be Madam Queen. Can he get out of the deal? When Madam Queen sees Andy, she isn't any more pleased to see him either. The boyfriend, Rocky, still has doubts, and to keep watch, he phones a friend to keep an eye on Andy.
 
Kingfish is approached by a friend, Calhoun, who is worried, and upset. He claims that Andy is going to be killed. He learned at the pool hall about the man who is to watch Andy, to make sure Andy doesn't get too close to Madam Queen. Elsewhere, Andy drives Madam Queen and the two talk about old time. Good times, bad times, but Andy behaves and sticks to his driving. Although, he notices that they're being followed. Still, there was enough compromising behavior that a bad report ha reached Rocky.
 
Rocky believes the report, and though Andy goes into hiding, he tracks him down. What will happen when the two meet again? What will the jealous Rocky do?
 
Bonus Track:
Spike Jones. 1948. In the Mood for Love.

Superman 1943-06-07 The Meteor from Krypton. (retro249)

Podcast cover
Read more
Due to spotty preservation, this episode is the only one I can find in this series in the Superman program. Sponsered by Kellogs Pep. The story thus far deals with a flaming meteor that crashed onto a nearby farm. As Clark Kent investigated, he became weak and dizzy. Fearing a doctors exam would reveal his secret identity as Superman, he is reluctant but Perry makes him go anyway. His impervious skin has broken the doctors needle.  Today, he is still in the doctor's office, but manages to get the visit over with. The mysterious word, "Krypton" keeps springing into the mind of Clark. He's certain it holds a clue to his weakness, and the meteor. There's something familiar about that word, 'Krypton,' it has a familiar ring to it, but he can't figure it out. . Back at the Daily Planet, Perry and Lois hound Clark about what he is keeping a secret from them. Are they on to his Superman identity? Lois reveals that a small group of scientists know about a planet named Krypton,m and they are certain that this meteor is from it.  In following episodes, the pressure is on Clark, and he loses his temper with his friends. He continues to make sense of the mystery behind the strange meteor. I think it would be safe to assume that he figures it out, and still keeps his identity safe.  Bonus Tracks: Cab Calloway. 1932. Minnie the Moocher. Graham McNamee. 1940 Talks about Mike Checks. Andrews Sisters. Ragtime Cowboy Joe. Minnie Pearl. 1945. Brother's New Girlfriend.

Exploring Tomorrow 480122 First Men On The Moon

Podcast cover
Read more


A rocket ship has blasted off, manned with a one man crew. As the astronaut is well on his way to the moon for the first exploration there, he gets a radio message to change plans. It seems that in the race for space, the Russians have beat him there by 2 days. The worst of it is, that they have claimed the moon for themselves.
 
What's a astronaut to do? His instructions are to avoid a world wide incident, and just do a fly by of the moon, and return home. Instead, he defies the political machine, and lands anyway. Even the sole Russian astronaut on the moon puts on a hostile front.
 
It soon becomes clear that the Russian is having problems. His survival is in danger. Hey, it would be no big deal to leave an enemy to his own fate. It would be just one more tiny thread in the tapestry of national animosity. Defiant to the end though, the American astronaut breaks rules to do the right thing, despite what is politically correct.
