Upcoming Netcast, Pt. 2

Originally published in the March, 2009, Old Radio Times.(

Broadcasting On April 4 and 5

Kiss your sweetheart goodbye as you snuggle down to two full days of old-time radio shows. On April 4-5, Radio Out of the will be broadcasting shows from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Pacific or Noon to midnight Eastern. This time around we take a serious look at sidekicks or partners. No, they weren’t all western—there were a lot of shows that had sidekicks—what about I Love a Mystery or The Shadow? And there plenty of partners in the realms of comedy. And yes, Westerns. Cast your eye down the schedule listed below. You better lay in your favorite nibbles and beverages.

All you need to do is log into Once there, tab down to The Fred Bertelsen Old-time-radio Room. Enter the room by clicking or pressing enter. You might need to download the talking community software ahead of time. Then just sign in, without using a password. Door prizes are ready to be awarded, so you don’t want to miss this weekend.
