Weekend old time radio, anyone?

Old time radio (OTR) has been a passion of mine since I was but a lad listening to Lum and Abner reruns on a radio station out of Hot Springs, Ark., with my dad in the 1970s.

A lot of those shows have held up very well over the years, while others exist as an odd reflection of the times in which they were made.

I was a Communist for the FBI is one of those "reflective" shows that reveal a lot about how Americans viewed Communists in the Red Scare days of the 1940s and 1950s. Click here to hear for yourself -- it's a great show, to be sure, and is as entertaining as it is a bit of an historic document.

For more OTR, click here and listen all you want.
