I just wanna tell ya—as I channel my inner Bob Hope—that there were a passel of entries for this week’s giveaway at Thrilling Days of Yesteryear, which is a testament to the popularity of the classic radio comedy series The Phil Harris-Alice Faye Show.  Sadly, I only have one copy of the Radio Spirits CD collection featuring their first twenty broadcasts for… Continue reading “Regardless of how you feel inside, always try to look like a winner.” — Arthur Ashe

I received a plethora (I learned this word from Cliff Weimer—it means “a lot”) of entries in the latest Thrilling Days of Yesteryear giveaway...oddly enough, I think we had more people participate in the previous “Full Details” contest.  But that’s just nitpicking on my part, and though I would dearly love to be able to… Continue reading “Winning doesn’t always mean being first.
