It's Old-Time Radio day on Tales From SYL Ranch, the podcast that gives meaning to your boring, miserable existence.

This week, we travel back in time to the early 1950s.  The lineup for the week is:

  • The Old Fan's Introduction
  • Dragnet:  "The Big Man, Part 1"
  • X-Minus One:  "Time and Time Again"
  • Dragnet:  "The Big Man, Part 2"
  • X-MinusOne:  "The Seventh Order"
  • Secret musical piece

While these are only half science fiction, the two episodes of Dragnet are included as an example of what the best of the best shows could achieve.

Pop your smartphone into a good stereo and gather around the speakers.  Courtesy of the hijacked TARDIS (and wire recordings), we're going back in time for an evening of radio in the early 1950s.
