If you're interested in soap opera programs, this is for you. The Old Time Radio Researchers received a collection of donated cassettes that had been sent by the donor because they appeared to be upgrades to what we had in our audio library or not even in circulation (or hard to find). They are episodes he collected over many years. They've finally been digitized by myself with some light restoration by Damon Fries.

I have uploaded the set in .flac format to Archive.org. This is not a Maintained set and may not be permanent. These shows will added to our library but probably in .mp3 format; .flac takes up too much space and we want to stay on the good side of our hosting service. I thought it would be most convenient for interested listeners to get them in one spot rather than having to download one or two episodes from this series and then that series.

There are ~60 programs and they total about 1.3 gig.  

Edit: Our webmaster says server space is not an issue so these will be added to our library in flac format.

Get your hankies ready and enjoy!

[Organ wailing sympathetically]  Now, round the corner and up your street, we bring you. . . The Lives and Legends of Melanie Boller, one young woman's fight to find happiness, fulfillment and enough fiber to become just another regular girl seeking peace in the small town of Foldedover Corners.

Chapter 39. As you recall, the insidious Raymar Cousineau is trying to entrap Grampa Strains in a bad real estate deal which will render him penniless, unable to loan Melanie and Coco the money they need to save the orphanage from exploding from a bad furnace. As we tune in today, we find Baxter Jackson cornering Raymar in one of the circular rooms of the old Coniglio Mansion, where Raymar has hidden her fortune in rare baseball cards. Let's listen. . .


[I love old soaps as much as I love The Shadow and The Whistler, which is mightily.  I see your 1.3 gigs and raise you in estimation by 42 gigs, Ozradio. I am even more indebted than Grampa Strains.
Jeff Very Happy

Yes they do. All the Kroger soaps have long runs of surviving episodes (eg Mary Foster, Editors Daughter has 1034 surviving episodes) but where are they?

Linda First Love has 782 surviving episodes

MStevens,

Have you ever written to Mr Goldin to see where you might find the programs (I think he's still taking letters). or you could Nudge Greybelt.

Mr. Goldin gas stated on his Radiogoldindex site that he does not sell episodes any longer and he directs those interested in obtaining episodes to seek OTR vendors. If I recall correctly he sold all of his shows to Radio Spirits a few years back. But I guess it doesn't hurt to ask!

All the Kroger soaps were held by a Jerry Austin Of Los Angles who passed away a few years back. What happened to them after that I don't know. Radio Spirits appears to have the Mary Foster episodes. I don't know if they have the other Krogers soaps or if they went else where.

Thanks for posting these. I love the soaps, having my mouth washed out several times for ill-advised self-expression in my youth.

Unfortunately I wonder if there's not much commercial incentive for a business like Radio Spirits to release these. So many episodes would necessitate multiple sets and I can't imagine there's much demand for them.

Yes this is true but I know there are some of us around here at the Cobalt Club that are definitely interested in them. Smile

Radio Spirits does air a Mary Foster not in general circulation every now and then on its podcast.

Does any one have any Myrt and Marge not part of the syndication package?

Scooper, I've got 150 or so episodes of *Myrt and Marge*, but I don't know which are non-syndicated right offhand. Any further direction?

Ghemrats,

Golden lists 130 episodes beginning 4/1/46 running through 9/27/46. These are the ones that have been general circulation for years which I am I am sure many Cobaltian's have. He also lists several from 1937 which I don't think are circulated. So you may have 20 that are not generally floating around

Scooper, I'll check the non-1946 shows and post any that Goldin does not have listed. It's entirely possible I may have some duplicates or some such, but I do know I have one from 1937 (December 27), one from 1939 (September 21) and one labeled 311102. (I'm guessing I don't have any new episodes)
Jeff
