A little housekeeping

Well, it seems there was some confusion when we switched over to a new story line in our Lum and Abner series of comic strips.
Specifically, we had a couple of people asking where the previous strips went. The answer to that is easy enough — they’re still available for all to enjoy. How can our readers find them? Simple — just mouse over the “Lum and Abner” category in the black menu at the top of the page and all the subcategories in that menu will pop so past story …

Weekend OTR: Night Editor — Homecoming for Two

Yes, it’s the weekend once again and we all know what that means — another fine old time radio program for your listening pleasure!
What’s on tap this weekend? An episode of Night Editor which was a bit of human interest melodrama that touched on enough themes to choke a horse (noir detective stuff, war stories, etc.) The program ran for 14 years and it’s popularity should come as no surprise — it’s well written, well acted and hits on topics that are still incredibly entertaining. If you’ve never heard an …

Yes, the day has come at long last — the first two episodes of the Super Weasel Lawyer Team are posted and ready for your listening pleasure.

Simply put, it’s our attempt at something similar to an old time radio show. While it might be a bit more “PG” than the typical “G-rated” OTR programs we post on the site …

Bally Astrocade — should have been a contender

What do you get when you put together a video game console with graphics and sound that were well ahead of what the Atari 2600 had to offer and one of the best controllers of any early gaming system?
You get the Bally Astrocade, a system that was released (sort of) in 1977 and had a lot going for it. If you just look at the specs, the system should have whipped the socks of the Atari, frankly — the CPU was faster, the graphics were sharper and even rivaled the …
