Weekends there is a syndicated hour of programs called the Hall of Fame hour - see schedule @ RadioSpirits.com/OnTheRadio - which may include any series from the golden age of radio, such as:
The Burns & Allen Show starring George Burns and Gracie Allen as one of America's favorite comedy teams.
Escape, hosted by William Conrad of Gunsmoke, by the producers of Suspense
"Fort Laramie," a western drama starring Raymond Burr as Lee Quince, captain of the cavalry at Fort Laramie, on the Wyoming frontier. The series was originally broadcast on the CBS Radio Network in 1956.
"The Phil Harris/Alice Faye Show," starring bandleader Harris along with his wife film star Alice Faye, originally aired from 1946 to 1948 on NBC. It is a zany comedy series not unlike the "Jack Benny Program" which also featured Phil Harris.
Lights Out, the classic horror-drama series hosted by Arch Oboler
"This Is Your FBI," first heard on the ABC Radio Network in 1945, and aired through 1953. In many of the shows Stacy Harris stars as Jim Taylor, FBI Special Agent. The rest of the cast is extensive and from both coasts (the series was first produced in New York before moving to Hollywood in 1948).
