A HALF HOUR RADIO SHOW

See on Scoop.itBooks, Writing, and Reviews

This site hosts the original broadcasts of the cult radio comedy show “A Half Hour Radio Show,” syndicated around the US in the early 1990’s.

Marilyn Armstrong‘s insight:

When I was in college, I worked at the radio station. The people I met there included two husbands and almost all the people I call friends today. Sometimes, I was part of this show. I wrote some stuff, did voices on and bits. Hung around, heckled, made suggestions, joined in when another body was needed.

It was the biggest hit our little college station ever had. We were young, silly, and frequently stoned. Since then, the show’s producer, Tom Curley,  has put it through, many iterations, refined and rewrote it. After all these years, it’s still funny. You don’t waste funny.

Welcome to my fondest remembered past, the audio time capsule of my youth. From when the world and I were young …

    • Thank you. I just took a look at your site. I check these days to make sure it really IS a website and not a spammer using a fake address. Thank you. The Half Hour Radio Show is good and it deserves an audience. It was created originally by a bunch of us in the late 1960s at Hofstra’s college radio station — then WVHC, now WRHU (88.7 FM on Long Island in Hempstead, New York). If you “follow” the site, there’s a lot more stuff there, the Sterling Bronson Space Engineer series being my all-time favorite, probably because I had a big role in creating it. I was very young. Like … 19, I think. Before life got so serious 🙂

  2. I’m reading a “Nostalgia Digest” magazine sent by a mutual friend. It focuses entirely on the golden days of radio. For those of us who grew up with radio, the memories are rich. Our days at the Hofstra radio station are rich with their own special memories and the friendships which endure.

  3. i had a listen of part one for a few minutes. Not bad at all, I just love listening to those voices tinged with American radio style. Will be back to listen to more. I take it Gary was also working on the show. The only person in our family that is broadcasted is son No. 2, who now and again has to give up some political stuff from the Swiss government on the Swiss Radio political news.

    • No, if you are talking about “On the Internet, No one Knows You’re a Dog,” that was a bunch of professional radio actors, written and directed by my friend Tom and his wife, Ellin.

      Garry was a news guy and he had already left the radio station and was working as a producer at ABC Network in New York when we were playing at the radio station at college.

      If you follow or subscribe to PodBean, the Sterling Bronson episodes on there were my creation (originally, 48 years ago!) and the cast includes my first husband (RIP), Tom, Kit … many of the people who were and are my best friends. It’s a bit weird to hear our young voices coming out of the past.
