The time we are living in right now, reminds me of movies and documentaries from the Great Depression, up until the 1950s when families would all be around the large radio listening to radio plays together. I’ve always loved Old Time Radio shows and plays and have been listening to them so long that I actually don’t remember when I started listening to them. I also have a first draft of a radio play I wrote a few years ago. I need to dig it out, finish it and it might be time to start recording our own!
Here is a list of some of my favourite radio plays and channels.
