Hello, I am new here . . .
« on: December 07, 2012, 04:32:14 PM »
I have been listening to the Relic Radio downloads for several years now, and now I'm taking the plunge and joining the forum.  My name is Tina and I listen to OTR mainly because I get tired of the junk that is out there!  Between Relic Radio and other places, I have over 9,000 podcast episodes to listen to.  So many episodes, so little time . . .   ;)

Hi Tina!

So glad you've decided to join us on the forums!  I like your signature - is Inner Sanctum your favourite series?

I actually think Suspense is my favorite, along with Dragnet and Fibber McGee and Molly.  But I liked the ending line from Inner Sanctum and CBSRMT! :-)

Welcome. I have the same feeling on the podcasts.

I have actually learned more about society from the '30's, '40's and '50's by hearing the original commercials and PSA's in OTR broadcasts than I could learn from a textbook.  Plus, some of the references in some of the comedy shows give a good window into society of that time.  For example, there was an Abbott and Costello routine that referred to butter being locked in a bank vault.  :)

I know what you mean!  I heard an Inner Sanctum recently where Raymond joked about killing someone for their Ration Stamps... I was kind of shocked.  My sister works with families of Autistic kids... I think using the Lovaas Method.

When I mention my son, I'm amazed at how many people say, "Oh I know someone who has/works with kids with autism," or who knows someone who knows someone who . . . The statistics are 1 in 88 now of people having some form of autism.

I feel like that percentage must be increasing!  Like you, I find more and more people are having their lives directly touched by Autism.  I just closed a play last month where I was playing someone with it... the whole experience was a very interesting one - I wish I'd had more time with it.
