I will be posting what I have or what I think I have. I'm sure there are some fills out there, most likely just the Bickerson skits, but fills notwithstanding.

I also want to point out this this is NOT a Bickersons thread so I'll ask that you not post skits from other programs on which they appeared

Here's hoping I don't violate my own request by posting anything not coming from the Old Gold show.
I am including the opening of the various Bickersons skits to help in the identification process

Bob was, of course, correct... one of my shows ( I did say unchecked!) was mis-labeled. I won't add anything further without first reviewing since we're getting all serious here and everything.

'Tis a far, far better thing you do here, Geezer. A tip of the Pilgrim hat to ye, and Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Geezer, thanks for the effort here. Quick question: back at the beginning (in the requests thread) you mentioned having a "near complete" 48-05-28. The file you posted has a "(2)" in the filename and only runs 11 minutes. Is there a fuller copy as well?

I should say I've gone back through my collection and found nothing further to add here... sorry!

That one turned out to have been (what a surprise Crying or Very sad ) mis-dated. It was actually Pgm 35 dated 4-21-48.
