This book has been a huge timesaver in terms of researching radio shows both for myself and for my clients who are promoting their books. I do agree with the previous reviewer that 1 the Guest From Hell sections are repetitive and a no-brainer and 2 it is missing some genres, but overall, an excellent resource. Highly recommended--and worth the hefty price tag. William Harper grew up catching what he describes as the tail end of the Golden Age of radio and comics. He faithfully ate Nabisco Shredded Wheat, saving the Injun-Uity cards, those cardboard dividers printed with Indian outdoor lore, packed three to a box separating the shredded wheat biscuits.

Years later as manager of the Augusta Book Exchange in downtown Augusta, Harper happened on a small collection of Straight Arrow comics. Every issue of the comics title page bore the name of the artist, Fred L. Meagher, Harper undertook what he thought would be an easy chore; locate all 55 issues of the comic and the artist.

The search took many twist and turns, drawing, as it were, Harper deeper into the fascinating world of comic collecting. Teresa, an artist whose appreciation included modern comics, especially fantasy works such as Conan the Barbarian and Elf Quest, was drawn into the search through her comic interest and marriage. The newsletter was primarily concerned with the great Fawcett icon, the original Captain Marvel.

The Harper s research on Straight Arrow soon filled a file cabinet drawer and thus was born, Pow-Wow. Later the files emptied of Straight Arrow material, the decision was made to discontinue Pow-Wow. The last issue was sent with the promise of a Fred L. Meagher special edition. However, Teresa Harper died October 18, , and William pushed aside any future plans for the special. During this time Jean Walton of New Jersey offered to research Meagher, and several years later she mailed her efforts to Harper, which became the backbone of the Fred L.

Meagher special, which was partially published in Alter Ego. In William Harper bound the copies of Pow-Wow into a single volume. Looking back over the wealth of material he decided to work up a proposal for a book. There were some loose ends that needed to be gathered on personalities, so while he submitted his proposal to various publishers, he did some additional research. BearManor Media accepted the proposal.

This book examines radio and mystery drama from about to the genre's final appearance in the late 's. While its focus is on women detectives, French provides minute and fascinating details about dozens of mystery programs and includes a comprehensive listing of source material ranging from magazine articles, to dime detective novels, to film noir. Each lady detective appearing under one of eight cleverly conceived categories gets handsome, multi-page treatment.

The author traces the chronological appearance of the subject's show, examines the program's history and origins, and details with substantial documentation the manner of the show's presentation and production. He intersperses the text with actual dialogue taken directly from the program scripts. Winner of the Agatha Award!.

This is volume 4 of the 7 volume set from historian Roger C. Volume 1 of this 10 volume set from historian Roger C. Paulson promises to be the most complete old-time radio encyclopedia ever written. At least seven times the size of John Dunning s On the Air, this massive tome has been 20 years in the making and is a MUST for any fan of radio history. With biographies of its even obscure series and stars, it is the most comprehensive set ever attempted!

Everything from AP Bandwagon to Ivan Cury is covered here in an overwhelming amalgamation of biographical material that is sure to please the casual observer as well as the steadfast researcher of radio and early recorded sound. Birthdates, deathdates, credit lists, cross-referenced with alternate show names, Archives of the Airwaves far surpasses any book on radio history ever before published.

Howard Duff, a virtual unknown among Hollywood circles, found himself bombarded with movie offers. The early broadcasts of the series revealed a dark side of Spade: stealing money out of a dead man s wallet to sleeping with a married woman. Over time, the script writers cut down on the dark side and added an emphasis of humor. Spade s romantic relationship with his secretary Effie was more obvious.

While many recordings exist from the radio broadcasts of the forties and fifties, a large percentage of the SAM SPADE programs are considered lost -- due to the lack of preservation. Today, fans of the program seek out those lost adventures, especially the earliest broadcasts that shed light on just what kind of character Sam Spade is and the explanation for the popularity during the late forties.

Almost every script originates from a lost episode that fans cannot otherwise listen via recording. Some of the earliest episodes are included, revealing the darker side of Sam. A holiday offering from the Steve Dunne season is included, as well as an episode revealing Sam s affections for another woman so strong he was willing to lose his secretary for her. A lengthy essay revealing background concerning each of these scripts is included. Volume 6 of this 7 volume set from historian Roger C.

In , while on a trip to New York City with his parents, he became very excited to actually see live broadcasts of shows he had often heard over the air. All of this eventually led to his forty year career in broadcasting. During the 's he began collecting tapes and books on old-time radio. After listening to the tapes and reading the books he decided to author a complete, accurate and readable encyclopedia on OTR he titled Archives of the Airwaves. Some twenty years later, upon completing the time-consuming research and writing, you are now reading the result.

Intrigues, threats, boarding parties, smuggling, shipwreck, danger and adventure on the high seas - they all form part of the remarkable story of the pop radio pirates. During the s and '70s, they broadcast their programmes from storm-lashed radio ships anchored off the coasts of Europe. As the popularity of the stations grew - first in Denmark and Sweden and, later, in Britain, Holland and Belgium - and they multiplied in number, competition among them reached cut-throat level.

The story is told of how the dramatic events around the Radio City fort in London's Thames Estuary resulted in the shooting to death of its owner; of the rivalry between Holland's Radio Veronica and the sychedelically-painted Radio North Sea International which culminated in the night bombing of theNorth Sea ship; how Radio Caroline, Capital Radio and Radio Veronica broke free from their stormy anchorages and were driven aground; how Radio North Sea International became the centre of an espionage scandal involving the security services of several NATO countries, and played its part in influencing the British General Election.

Biblical Series I: Introduction to the Idea of God

Blackmail and armed boarding parties were the order of the day as rival gangs of pirates literally fought to take over each other's radio ships and to carve up lucrative advertising markets. Successively, the governments of Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, Britain and The Netherlands legislated against the pirate broadcasters. On the positive side, the activities of the pop radio pirates led to innovations and improvements in the established government monopoly radio services. Pirate disc jockeys, crewmen and radio engineers were pursued by police throughout Western Europe and many prosecuted for daring to provide their diet of relentless pop music from a wallowing, rusty radio ship bearing a huge aerial mast.

They were, perhaps, the last real romantic outlaws in a world which has little time for those who seek to operate outwith the reach of the all-embracing tentacles of government. He sounds like a piece of work. Thanks for writing this. One time i met this guy on a night out in Manchester. I was quite drunk and not that bothered. At the end of the night when i had drifted away to some other bar this guy gave his number to my male friend and asked him to pass it on. I thought that was cute so i got in touch with him. We went on a date. We had loads in common, talked all night, he kissed me and it was wonderful etc etc.

It felt like something truly special. We seemed to be a perfect match. Cue date 2, had a great time again. No big deal we said! Lots of lovely kissing followed. Pretty mean behaviour and totally perplexing. The weird thing is he just seemed like the nicest guy ever. He seemed very kindhearted. What is wrong with people?! I think a lot of people get easily freaked out by even a hint of commitment, unfortunately, even if that commitment was something casual.

Though I admit that even that part was hard, because I had practically gone into the love territory with him. I agree that travelling certainly adds another element to it. I have never been ghosted after all, or so I thought. I guess not. Sometimes I wonder what I would do if I run into him — what would you do, Brenna? I wish you all the best! This is really embarrassing to admit, but… I when I first started dating online used to ghost people. Usually there would be one follow-up text, but nothing after that—I took that as a sign of tacit understanding.

Luckily, I eventually grew up and started handling these situations like an adult. I really liked all three people I wrote about in the post, and I imagine I would have even been friends with them… but their actions made it so that I will forever think badly of them. Always a battlefield! Oh man, the semi-ghost is also terrible. I am trying to be a lot more honest with people I date now, and like you, telling them what I expect a bit earlier in the relationship. It may scare some of them off, but hey — then at least I know where they stand. I remember that SATC episode!

You tend to think the worst but these guys are all missing out! I agree — very cowardly! Thanks for the comment, Sara! Show some respect! How is it possible that with the endless forms of communication that we have available at our fingertips, people do not have the decency to write a simple line to another person? Ghosting is strictly out of disinterest — a lack of connection.

And hating on the people who do it is as misguided as ghosting itself. If ghosting is the easy way out, hating on the people who do it is just as easy. It may be you, it may be them, it may be another relationship, timing, whatever. You did not connect like they did. If you think you deserve an explanation then you absolutely do — but then if so, just ask for one.

Own this and find your resolution. I had three different people write to me yesterday saying that they felt bad about ghosting someone, sent the text to say goodbye, and immediately had a pleasant response. I suggest you try it out. Argh ghosting is the worst. My ex actually did it to me after we had been casually dating for about two weeks.

It was all going well then he just dropped off the face of the earth. He was a bartender at my local bar so over the next four months I saw him a couple of times and he was always really nice when I saw him, gave me a hug, seemed glad to see me but never messaged me. He thought it was easier to just stop texting me, He had just got a new job in an office and was much happier and we ended up being together for nine years and were engaged, only breaking up six months ago because we wanted different things in life.

I hope that you guys are still friends. This is a thing!?! I cannot imagine something more rude or disrespectful than disappearing without a word when you have PLANS! I thought your example was very classy. It really is a pretty terrible thing to do to someone, in my opinion.

Thank you for writing this! I was ghosted late last year by a guy that I thought I really hit it off with. We spent 6 months together, and then he just stopped texting me back. It completely gutted me. He showed me his true colours by ghosting me, and I think because of that, I dodged a bullet. Oh god — I cannot believe how many people this has happened to. Six months?! What a jerk. I feel like such an idiot…happened to me after five years. He just disappeared. Quit calling, texting, no communication at all. Hi, I see this is just a few days ago. It happened to me on October 9, We had been friends 23 years, but in a relationship for two years.

Weeping all the time. It hurts so much. I hope the ghost of the love haunts him for the rest of his life. Thank you so much for posting this! I have only been ghosted once, but I have friends that experience this more often. When it happened to me, it was with someone that I had only been on a few dates with, but it brought up feelings similar to what I felt when my most serious relationship ended.

I also hated the obsessive person I became over the next few days- always checking my phone and basically stalking his social media. I like your mentality of looking at it almost as a favor, and your rationale that a guy who ghosts is not a guy you would want to be with is pretty solid logic. YES — I hate that ghosting does this to us.

I totally know what you mean. Love your blog have done for 2 years and love this post. It summarises everything about 21st century dating without being cliche or man-hating. Oh lordy yes, this sucks so hard. But to be left hanging by yourself? At the pub? After two months of dating? Nigh unforgivable. Oh man, ha ha. If it happens in London I will definitely write about it! Do you think that this ghosting epidemic is a sign of where we are as a society? And I agree with you, it can be exhausting! Yes, I was ghosted once.

We had several great phone conversations and then…. I left two voicemails a week apart and kept it casual. And then I shrugged it off. When I was in grad school I got ghosted by my then-boyfriend — we were doing long distance between the States and India, and he just straight up stopped answering my calls or responding to my emails for three months before breaking up with me via email. Whoops — sorry for the late reply! Adults have the respect and the courage to be honest. Thanks, Veena!

I have tons of issues with men named Chris as well. I had 2 of them ghost me as well. Once in high school, this Chris was my first real boyfriend and after a couple dates just straight up stopped texting. Then 5 years later friended me on Facebook. I rejected it and that was that. I had enough time to wash my hands of THAT mistake. The other was Christian in college.

We lived together and everything, had a clean and mutual break up and remained close friends. Then all of a sudden, nothing. I heard from another friend he moved from Philadelphia to Boston I live in New Haven so Boston is closer to me 4 months earlier. Not a word. But oh well, everything happens for a reason right?

Us and Chrises are not meant to be. Oh no — what is it with that name? A friend shared this post with me after my first ghosting experience left me feeling more than a little hollow and betrayed. I had a complete and utter emotional breakdown the first time I was ghosted after we were casually dating for a few months.

How is it possible that someone is so impolite and rude, even when you show them that you care for them? I was devastated for a while, and then began to pick myself up again, and tried dating again. I started to learn how to trust other people and open up again. It was going well until out of the blue he insults me and ghosts me..

I often feel like I care too much, love too much, all too fast. Dating is really, really, difficult, much more than I anticipated! I hope to keep traveling for years to come! Great article and funny, just yesterday I was thinking a lot about it. It was only few days ago, I finally accepted it and decided to move on. But yes, the thing is you hold on to that hope for so long. You believe in that person. I still have no explanation why we are now strangers. Late the the party too, but this article helps. In the middle of a ghosting, probably. International as well, Says she loves me, says we should visit each other even as late as our last skype while she was at her work this week , but no phone for weeks, no skype except when she is at work, and texts have started to dry up.

Also says she does not plan things. So I am not sure whether to call her out or just walk away. Either way ties me up in knots a bit. Triple ditto on the horse photo, I think my snorting woke my housemate. I opted to use airplane mode as a work around for maniacal blue tick syndrome. Needless to say, it petered out eventually anyway, minus the one last date we had where he called me a witch over and over. Ever battered your suitcase in New Mexico?

My situation had an international twist too Whatsapp but I refuse to Skype, even family on Thanksgiving. Skype may be a very friendly conduit for ghosts. So, yeah, thanks ghost. Oh, and blue ticking that another guy read your article its SEO tops. Oh bleh. All of these stories are way-too-familiar. Thank you for sharing. I laughed at your anecdotes, not because it was funny but because they were all too familiar.

Oh Breena, thank you for posting. Back in the dating game and after 2 weeks of a. Bummer, because I was enjoying getting to know you. Take care! I also loved your horse photo and it brought a huge smile to my face. Perfect photo for a crummy topic. Oh, and I have yet to travel to Bhutan, but it is on my list! I thought a true friendship was forming and we were just going to be friends. Church buddies, texting during church and even during the week especially when she was done with work.

So towards the end of the week I asked if I had done something wrong. She finally texted back through regular cell and said she had been busy that week. I accepted that and we even texted that Sunday during church. I sent her texts every day to say hi and to say hope she had a good day. However, after Sunday the 15th, I once again got no replies, not even on that Saturday or last Sunday when I expected one. All week last week and even today I never once got a text from her. Last week is when I learned of this term and after no text last Sunday I felt very defeated and felt like I did or said something wrong.

Being busy that first week I could understand…but after 2 weeks of no replies ….. This is not the first time this has happened to me through out my life. As I said I never knew the term until recently. He left the house three months ago after I found out he was cheating and cut off all communication with me, although we have three kids together.

I was in a relationship for just shy of 3 yrs! We had plans for the future! We were so close, I thought, we communicated in some form every day. Spent weeks at a time together when possible. I was ghosted 5wks ago and was out of my mind thinking he was injured or worse. Not a syllable from him since Jan 3rd. Feels like a death to me. I am so, so sorry, Marcia. What a terrible thing he has done.

I think that speaking with someone is a really brave and proactive step, and I hope that you start to feel normal again very soon. Thinking of you x. Finally a few days later I texted again telling him I raced back home and left my friends early to meet up with him. He could have respected my time. Still no response. Ok I know both guys and girls are guilty of ghosting but in relation to my situation what is up with all these douchebags?

I have to admit, though, your last line made me laugh. Just know that you are definitely not alone in how you are feeling…. I had been seeing her for about 2. I have met her mom, met a ton of her friends, I even went with her as her date to her staff Christmas party. But we were still talking and everything seemed normal.

My reading week for university was coming up and I was going to go skiing for a few days, I wanted to see her before leaving. I ended up going over and staying the night at her place before getting up to leave the next morning. Something did feel off, as she wanted to go to bed right away. I was gone for 4 days skiing and in that time I texted her twice, with no response at all. I still have yet to hear anything from her, almost a full week later. Up until this point she seemed like a mature, rational and kind person.. She is not someone you want to be with.

If she did this after a few months together, who knows what kind of crap she would have tried to pull later on down the line? Thank you for this post, Ms. First time being ghosted just a few weeks ago. Met him on tinder. I am totally over it, but I would still check his social media from time to time because he added me already on facebook and we follow each other on instagram.

We went out for 2 dates. Both dates went really well. He explicitly told me he liked me after our 1st date and he said he wanted to see me again soon. It was a sunday and he actually wanted to see me again 2 days later. We even planned for the 3rd date on Sunday to visit an art gallery. He even planted a kiss on my cheek when he dropped me off at my house on our 2nd date when I was really aiming for a cheek to cheek I know.. After that 2nd date, he never texted to check up on me or whatever.

Me, being foolish, still prepared the next day in case he was gonna text me last minute. No text. I cried and my self esteem was way too low at that point. Good luck. Sorry for not replying. I am going through a weird phase right now. Maybe we could talk again after I go through this. Sorry again. And he said that the reason for the break up was because the girl was being needy. I really liked him, but I guess he was just dating around. Also saw that he was partying around, enjoying his freedom. Your blog was such a big help.

It stopped me from attempting the worst thing that could happen right now, which was inviting him out for coffee like a super, short, chill, not a date, hang out. No feelings involved. Just friends hang out. Like right now, I would be willing to just go out with him again with no expectations. I know it sounds gross, desperate and stupid. But then again, this blog is a life saver.

Talk Radio Wants You: An Intimate Guide to Shows and How to Get Invited by Francine Silverman

I would just have to be patient and wait for the next better one. It just helped me and so has reading the comments. I was just ghosted after 2. Things were going so well and so great, I had no reason to think this would happen. I asked him if he wanted to hang out last saturday and he said he was busy and that was the last time he ever answered a text.

Its been dead silence a full week later and before this we used to talk all day everyday. I would never ever do that to him or anyone. Hi Brenna, your post is amazing. It was great to read all of the other comments too. I was struggle to think throught the night how to break up with him, but when I saw his face in the morning — he is just so handsome and treats me so nice, I think just try to date more.

Then what, we met by accident at the park while my kid were there very weird because I dont expect any date to meet up with my kid As our plan, after my night with friends I would go to his place to sleep with him and spend morning together. I sent him messages by watsapp quite late, no reply. Checked his fb, he is still online but in the morning next day he said he fell to sleep last night. I should end things up there but we continue message then suddenly no reply… for two days.

The problem is I met him on tinder but we have some mutual friends. I got ghosted before but I couldnt prepare for this time, with someone who is friend of my friend. I have high ego, so this hurt me so much, I feel ashame because I always think about myself that Im so amazing and behave that way. Now when a guy lose interest in me and ghost me, my self esteem become so low. One of our mutual friend will have her birthday this weekend. If I go there, I will see him again… I dont know if I should be there just because of him, and we live in the same city so we can run into each other sometime.

Should I send him a message to tell that Im not confortable with his behavior, tell him if dating is not working just think like we are friends? I have been ghosted by my boyfriend for 9 years. We lived together for 7 years. He left overnight and I have never heard from him since. It happened in early January and 3 months later, I do not know if I will recover one day…. Oh no, that is so horrible. I was recently dating a guy for about three months, and we had a fabulous time together.

We spent several weekends, many wonderful dates, and even a double date together.

He said he wanted to take me backpacking this summer and talked about all these future plans. Last time we went out was in March. Thank you for this article…. I was ghosted for the first time in late January of this year, and sadly it still occasionally haunts me pun fully intended. Background: This girl from Finland who had been following me on Twitter reached out to me in December after I had just started at a new job on the West Coast in the US. She noticed that we had a lot of similar, nerdy interests and wanted to get to know me better. Things were going great, we video chatted a lot on Skype, even played games together online and occasionally flirted.

After about a month, when I responded to her in flirtatious way on Facebook, she asked me if I was flirting with her. She mentioned that she would love to save some money and come visit me in the US. It was tied to her anxiety and depression, which she had since middle school and actively went to see a therapist for.

After that talk about her having a crush on me, she sent me a word-vomity FB message about how relationships scare her and she has trust issues, and that after being in a relationship that ended terribly she never wanted to be in one ever again. This gave me the idea that perhaps we could become closer when we finally met. She finally came to visit in late December. I had a great time showing her around my city.

I did notice some behaviors that were odd to me — her very reserved nature very common in Finnish culture , her negativity, her incredibly picky eating habits, her unwillingness to be in photos, and her overall lack of energy. Despite all this, we connected in other ways and enjoyed talking and hanging out. So when it came time to send her off to the airport, I got incredibly emotional. After we said our goodbyes, I was in a badly, overly emotional mood for the next few days. When I mustered up the courage, I messaged her and told her that I had a great week with her and because of all the time we spent together, I fell hard for her.

It would admittedly sting me for a while, but I could try to get over it. In the end, I told her that no matter what I wanted to be her friend and to be there for her. I almost always get anxious whenever someone tells me they have feelings for me. I told her I was glad she was being honest with me, and that I would give her space, but also told her to never be afraid to reach out to me. I gave her two weeks of no communication, to give her space.

Meanwhile I was dealing with a broken heart and trying to cheer myself up on social media and by talking to friends, drinking my sorrows away, the usual. After two weeks, I reached out again to ask her how she was doing. She never responded. She instead protected her Twitter account against me and began ghosting me.

Talk Radio Wants You: An Intimate Guide to 700 Shows and How to Get Invited

After consulting my friends, I unfriended her on Facebook as I realized I needed to distance myself from this person who clearly was undergoing a depressive episode but at the same time was showing they were too immature to have a healthy, adult conversation with me.

She would eventually slowly but surely remove me from other friends lists: Steam, Skype, etc. A few weeks after, I noticed her friends tweeting photos and thanking her for gifts — these were gifts that I had originally given her for her birthday. And now she was re-gifting them. This hurt me even more — to the point I decided to block her on social media in every way I could.

Her ghosting and subsequent actions made me feel used and abused. I felt like she used me as a place to stay for free while she visited America. It felt incredibly manipulative. After a few months, she reopened her Twitter account. And I perhaps never will. Even if I was OK with just being her friend. They say I dodged a bullet and that there were a LOT of red flags with her that I initially chose to ignore. But it still crops up. I get angry about it.

I think about how terrible her actions were. Despite the emotional pain this whole ordeal put me in, I learned a lot from it. It taught me a lot about how people with severe depression and anxiety operate. It also got me back into working out and releasing my aggravation about the situation through healthier means. And despite all the drama, I can at the very least remember the good times we had.

And yet, the pain of this episode still comes up every now and then. I know this is an old post, but I was just ghosted for the first time, and this post really helped me feel better. Thank you for your article, it has really helped :. I was wondering what you might think of my situation.

The first time was in college. I met someone the second semester of my senior year and we became very close. When graduation came I was devastated. We spent our last days and nights together. He was staying in school another year and I was going onto teaching in a different city, and we talked about how timing is everything, and that we would be dating permanently had timing been better. It did not make sense for us to date long distance. We had only known each other for a couple months and we were so young. I agreed with that. But I was in love, and I cared about him, so post graduation I wanted to stay in touch.

And so did he! We stayed in touch for a month after graduation and then…. I accepted that our relationship had run its course. But then a couple months later I got a long e-mail from him explaining what he had been up to, asking me lots of questions, telling me he missed me. And this cycle of communication carried on with him for a year. I learned not to get excited when he texted me or care if it ended. Now when he texts me I see it as an old friend texting me and have no emotion towards it.

The second, most recent, time, I am still coping with and feeling very hurt because of it. I just moved home from a place where I was living for two years. In my last two months living there I met someone from Argentina and we fell head over heals for each other. I was very careful because I know the reputation latin guys have, but so many things made me certain he truly liked me. First, all my argentine mutual girl friends told me they had never seen him act that way with a girl brining me food to work and to parties, cooking me dinner at my apartment, taking me on hikes, spending days at a time together, taking me on dinner dates, etc.

Also many of his actions convinced me. We talked about me visiting Argentina but I wasnt sure if he was serious because it had all gone so fast. We met 6 weeks prior to his departure but it was only serious for 4 weeks I would say. Anyway, it was the best 6 weeks together. I havent felt this way about a guy since the kid from college both ghosters.. His smile, his eyes, his voice, made me crazy.

His energy lit me up. I was in love. When he left for the airport to go back to Argentina it was really sad and we both cried. I texted him that I was sad and he said he was too, and then I texted him the name of a song he wanted me to tell him and he didnt respond.
