Old Time Radio - Martin and Lewis - 1-11-2012

Before Television my family would watch the radio shows. Yes I said watch, we used our imagination. When TV came I missed the radio shows because the imagination was better than what was shown on TV. I hope you enjoy the shows like I did. Let your mind free to see what is on the show. You can see more with your mind than with your eyes. 4/3/1949 Lucille Ball4/10/1949 William Bendix5/1/1949 Madeleine Carroll5/8/1949 Peter Lorrie
