Today I interviewed John Abbott, whose revised edition of his marvelous Johnny Dollar book is coming very soon. It's 23 minutes...

I posted this on the OTRR Facebook page:

BIG NEWS! The second edition set of John Abbott's "Who Is Johnny Dollar Matter" is out! [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (NOTE: It's also available on Amazon -- be sure it says "second edition" as the first edition comes up in searches and the second edition has no photos and shows up later in the list; buying through Bear Manor supports one of our hobby's most loyal publishers). This is a really big deal -- The commentary has been updated, many missing shows are now documented through script research that was not possible previously. The Bob Readick part of the series has had major revisions in terms of the actual broadcast dates, with hard new research that obsoletes prior logs of the series. This is a massive and authoritative undertaking and adds to OTR fans understanding of the series and its production. John documented many inside jokes inserted into the scripts, including street addresses and character names, especially in the Jack Johnstone era (which is the 5-parters through to the series conclusion), which makes listening to YTJD newly fascinating.

###
It's in 2 volumes now, 1300+ pages, and you have a choice of hardcover or softcover.

Welcome to the Johnny Dollar thread for a series of upgrades. There's plenty of Baileys ahead, so fans of his and Kramer will just have to wait for the chronological approach to play itself out. The five-parters will not be included.

While we're on the subject there's still a need for updating the "continuous play" set of the five-part era where the opens and closes are removed between episodes to make a continuous story. Sure, purists may be aghast at such things, but listening in that format is more enjoyable for many, and the distinct episodes are still being preserved. The current recordings in that format are about 15 years old and most episodes that were used are in better sound now, so a refresh is in order for some enterprising fan.

These files use the current numbering in the OTRR set. Author John Abbott's new research means that much of that has to be updated, especially the Readick run. I'm no fan of show numbering because there are too many things that can go wrong or can't really be captured in just a number. In some cases the numbers on scripts, such as the 6-part Kranesburg Matter are numbered on the scripts as 1, 1-A, 2, 3, 4, 5. Numbering them 1 to 6 removes part of show history, just as Phantom Chase Matter, originally planned for 10 segments ended up with 9 and no script number 7. The reasons why these were done this way are interesting as the show adapted to national news usurping its time slot.

We have is what we have, so to keep things in congruence with the current numbering, the file names will stay the same and at some point there will be an OTRR set with these many revisions. The first OTRR YTJD set created standards for research and organization that were important to digital OTR collecting. The leader of that effort was Ed Sehlhorst who dropped out of the hobby for health reasons. Seeing Ed's work with the community of volunteers was an important aspect of getting me excited about the hobby again.

In the meantime, see the prior post about getting John Abbott's solid YTJD work. The Amazon Kindle version of the book has been released. Remember, there is Kindle software for all devices, even desktops. You can save some bucks in the process.

We'll kick it off with two recordings. Johnny was really close to being named "Lloyd London" but thankfully he got a much better name by the time the Dick Powell audition was done. If Powell had gotten the Johnny Dollar gig, we would never have had Richard Diamond, one of radio's best and most entertaining series. Diamond's personality was built around Powell's -- to great effect -- and it's likely Johnny's would have become the same way.

These upgrades go straight into the O'Brien run after the Powell audition. The Charles Russell episodes seem to be as good as they're going to get.
