Google "Old time Radio" and you'll see there are radio programs from 50s and earlier - many were serials - westerns, detectives etc.

Back when Radio was a national pastime, people used to sit around and listen to radio dramatic stories, told, narrated, acted, scored and full of sound effects, just like watching an old black and white movie w/out the picture. But better, because these were produced knowing that sound was the only sense available, and they had to engage the listeners imagination. Some were dreadfully cheesy, but some were fantastic, and kids couldn't stop listening.

See stations such as:

For anyone too young, or who has not yet heard Orson Welles War of the Worlds, spend some time to listen to it. It terrified the nation.

To add to my squeezebox favoritesSearch for "old time radio USA" in the Radio menu. No idea if it is any good but it exists.

Been an old time radio listener for over 3 decades.

Antioch AM 1710 is the best I've found. They play shows from the same DATE (not year, obviously) 99% of the time

Brando Classic OTR is my 2nd favorite.

Maybe you need to use LMS.

There is a ton of good old-time radio out there. Maybe it does not all play on our squeezebox players but it is still good.

Might I suggest jean Shepherd who years ago had a show on WOR in NY 6 nights a wk. Author of the Christmas Story movie/story and many books.

Excelsior you fatheads !
