THIRD GRADE IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL:   When I was approximate 7 or 8 years old I came down with almost every common childhood sickness that a young person could get. In the same year I got the Mumps, Measles, Whooping Cough, Chickenpox and Scarlet Fever and a bee sting on my foot. I was in bed sick for almost a full year. To cure myself, remember I was 7 or 8 years old, I took nearly a full bottle of aspirin, went into a coma and nearly killed myself! Ha! Ha! How much does a kid know! Anyway, the year was something like 1947 and there was no television, only radio.

Childhood memories of old radio and television shows get all “jumbled-up” in my mind at this point. I can remember the shows and plots, but the chronology is out-of-order. I get afternoon children’s programs for weekday schedule, all mixed-up with Saturday children’s programs. So, please don’t criticize if I get the days and scheduled times wrong.  After all, they were only trivial children’s shows, not great historical events. Death, came into my life by radio. Tom Mix was a real cowboy who had a radio show that I listened to regularly with millions of other kids…  … Cowboy hero Tom Mix’s death in a car accident. I didn’t know that I was listening to sound recording, so when the records ran out the show ended…The Cowboy actor Tom Mix dies in an Arizona car accident On this day in 1940, the famous cowboy actor Tom Mix is killed in a freak car accident near his ranch in Florence, Arizona. Driving his single-seat roadster along  Strange how people can cry for the death of people who they don’t even know. I cried when I heard that Tom Mix was killed in a car crash.  “Bobby Benson and the B bar B,” was another children’s radio program that influenced me greatly. I confess, maybe a “tinge” of hero-worship. Oh, I wished as a little kid that I was Bobby Benson living on a ranch in the fictional American west, -with real cowboys. Yes! That is very homo-erotic!…”Bobby Benson & The B Bar B Riders” 19 Eps : Free Download The 30 minute children’s western program Bobby Benson & The B Bar B Riders,” starring Clive Rice as Bobby It also belongs to collection: Radio Programs

You see, I’m not a Christian. I don’t care what Christians think. I believe that I can “see-through” their hypocrisy. Everybody who is human, and has emotions, feelings that go deep and not some psychotic personality that is so emotional repressed that they are indifferent to other people and their own feeling. Robot people. Automatons, mechanical people, and cyborgs who go through life mechanically without empathy, or sympathy for anybody, not even their self. They are very dangerous people. For themselves and all society, sociopaths, who are disconnected from the real world.  It is only human emotions that make us all really human. Now! Now! That does not mean that we have to act out our every emotion. We can feel emotion without being hysterical.

Big John ans Sparky, was another children’s radio program that was a favorite of mine…… The theme song for Big John and Sparky click here…   Again and again, remember that the actors, producers and owners of these shows were in a World War, and there is no-way to convey the tragedy and suffering that many of these people went through in World War Two.  And yet! And yet, they went on with their lives. They made children’s programs, maybe with a lot more serious human concern for other people in a controlled adult way then the children’s programs are made today. They knew for the most part of homosexuality, torture of people, mass killings, shootings, harassment and bullying. You are not the first person to feel pain and suffer hurt…”יא  אֵין זִכְרוֹן, לָרִאשֹׁנִים; וְגַם לָאַחֲרֹנִים שֶׁיִּהְיוּ, לֹא-יִהְיֶה לָהֶם זִכָּרוֹן–עִם שֶׁיִּהְיוּ, לָאַחֲרֹנָה.  {פ} …. There is no remembrance of them of former times; neither shall there be any remembrance of them of latter times that are to come, among those that shall come after.”  …As the “Old Book” has in writing,..”Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity,..”   

הֲבֵל הֲבָלִים אָמַר קֹהֶלֶת, הֲבֵל הֲבָלִים הַכֹּל הָבֶל. 2 Vanity of vanities, saith Koheleth; vanity of vanities, all is vanity.  The world was not created just for the people alive today. The world existed before you were born, though the philosophy of existence and the nature of reality is far “Off-Topic” for this present blog.  Old Time Radio Memories…
