In another thread, it was brought up.

I miss Car Talk (RIP Tom Magliozzi)
I really miss A Prairie Home Companion

APHC had some of the best breakout musical talent and humor.

I currently listen to a guy out of Dallas on KLIF on Saturday mornings that does a car show called "Wheels" by Ed Wallace. I also like a gardening guy by the name Neil Sperry.

Many of those old shows are archived and can be easily accessed by asking 'Alexa' or other 'smart speaker' to play them. Though I no longer subscribe there's a channel on Sirius /XM of old time radio shows- like Gunsmoke, Green Hornet, Dragnet.

There are thousands of podcasts you can sign up for, and they're free. Some are even video.

Our local public radio station replays old Car Talk episodes.
I sometimes listen just for the jokes.

But who has time for radio when you can watch YouTube videos of bears eating bird seed?

I know that there are archives of old shows. I'm talking about new content.

For archives, there are:
  • Firesign Theater
  • National Lampoon Radio Show

I miss Car Talk
I miss the radio show, but I do read Ray Magliozzi's column in the paper every Saturday. If your paper doesn't carry it, you can read it online.

Decades ago when we were young and silly we used to drive straight through to Florida, a 20hr drive from home. I used to have many episodes of old radio shows (Dragnet was DH's favorite) on cassettes to listen to during the night while driving in the many spots where there were no local radio stations on overnight.

I should check and see if I can find some online that I could load onto a USB stick and play when we are camping with no electricity and out of radio station range.

Edited to add, I googled old radio show podcasts & wow! Lots of stuff is available, even old Johnny Carson show interviews! They even look fairly easy to save onto a USB or device. :thumbup:
