The Dogcast: Some “Suspense” For Your Old Radio Listening Pleasure!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with some more old radio goodness! This week I thought it would be fun to present a couple of episodes from the legendary series “Suspense.” Starting in the 1940s and running all the way into the 1960s, making it the premiere mystery series on the radio. Luminaries such as Orson Welles, Agnes Morehead, and even Jack Benny took their turns on the famous series and it has a number of classic episodes. Enjoy these two and feel free to comment either below or on my Facebook page! So Sayeth The Kendog!

The Dogcast: “Old Time Radio’s Salute To Veteran’s Day!”
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kcndog and I know I’m a little late but this week’s old radio offerings celebrate those that made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Norman Corwin was a brilliant writer/producer who told tales of our soldier’s heroism and sacrifice during World War II. On the occasion of this Veteran’s Day I’m offering two of Corwin’s best: On A Note Of Triumph and Fourteen August. The first describes and dramatizes the surrender of Nazi Germany while the second, narrated by Orson Welles, deals with the victor in Japan. These are dedicated to my late Grandfather, who fought and survived the Battle Of The Bulge in World War II! So Sayeth The Kendog!
