SO HERE IS THE BIG QUESTION: WHAT IS A RADIO SHOW? WHY COLLECT THEM? WHERE DO THEY COME FROM? Well, those are good questions, especially if you have never known of them. Radio Shows are syndicated productions by one of several large and small distributors who supply broadcast product to radio stations normally during weekends when the usual air personalities have a break. Many air on Saturday or Sunday evenings or during overnight segments. They often feature some of the best known voices for their genre from across the country thus the Dick Clark's and Casey Kasem's and Rick Dees and Dick Bartley and so many others. People collect them for various reasons. Some just collect the series because they like it and want them all. Some collect their favorite artists or genre of music. Rather than an album by the artist or a compilation bought at Wal Mart or downloaded through iTunes or wherever, they have a unique presentation of their favorite artist or music not available anywhere else and always with dj presentations which were very entertaining. Some collect interviews with their favorite artists as most shows had interview segments. Believe it or not, some collect commercials especially old car commercials but certainly not limited to only those. AND, these shows are in limited quantity. They were printed just for syndicated stations in the United States and were to be destroyed after broadcast and not sold. Many have just a few still in circulation. Some of the more popular shows may have as many as a few hundred of each week's show that survived but think about it. A few hundred for some 200 million Americans and millions of overseas collectors who look for unique presentations of their favorite artists or form of music is about as rare as rare can be. AND they are increasingly hard to find. They were first distributed on reel to reel tape if the show goes back that far into the 60's, then later on lp, later on CD and even later (after 2000 for most shows) on CDR. Now they are not available at all to collectors since they are distributed by digital download much like you get your music from iTunes. These shows become rarer and rarer every day because the people who buy them hold on to them and the people who sell them, like me, are running out of them. My best contact for these shows is running very low and when he is gone I will be at the mercy of finding a good deal here and there but never from a regular source. The shows that you get now and hold on to will never decrease in value and only increase. Even during the recession which is hopefully ending, the value of shows did not diminish much. The number bought diminished because people were afraid to spend their money and who blames them. But the prices did not decrease much and again are on the increase. I have prided myself since the start to provide the best and fairest cost with a no holds barred guarantee that you will be happy or I refund your money. I sell them for near what I bought them for. I give volume discounts and discount postage always. As the postal service increases their rates, my shipping rates over the years has decreased. And, I have one of the biggest radio show libraries in the world consisting of many thousands of shows, so many that I don't even know all that I have and am sometimes amazed when I go to look for one show and find another that I did not realize I had. Finally, it is Americana at its best. Whether the show be from the 60's or 2000's, rock, countdown, oldies, country, classical, religious, jazz or big band, it is unique and home grown. And you just can't find them anywhere. Even record stores that still exist will rarely have any. Radio shows are wonderful representations of the real golden age of radio at least music wise. And every one you buy is an original, not a copy, not a remake - all are limited editions in the hundreds at most and most much less. Once you get hooked, like me, it is a love affair for life! Welcome to the Club! IF YOU DO LIKE RADIO SHOWS FEATURING THE BEST MUSIC OF ALL TIME IN EVERY GENRE IMAGINABLE, YOU HAVE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE.

Besides the two music rooms in my house, I also have a 10 x 20 air conditioned storage shed filled to the brim with great shows. I have one of the biggest collections in the world. They are all available to you for the asking. I only have time to list a fraction of my shows because I work full time and this is my hobby, but just know they are there!

You WILL save and the more you buy the more you save. So, what am I offering? READ ON!!! OK guys and gals, A RARE TREAT!!!! I am beginning to list more of my BEATLE YEARS shows that I have been hoarding away since they have become so rare. Most collectors of BEATLE YEARS shows have stopped listing them and you rarely see them anymore. That is because, like all other quality shows, they are no longer available. The syndication market is a good one but everything is sent digitally now to the stations and no longer on CD. Radio shows were first syndicated on reel to reel tape, later on lp stereo discs (still the best fidelity), then CD's and now digitally. Collectors can no longer get their hands on this quality material so the ones that are available keep going up and up in value. Don't worry, though, I will always sell my shows at reasonable prices. I am a collector too and know how hard it is to find a good deal anymore. These shows are super old and super rare, THE RAREST OF THE RARE . They are distributed by Westwood One Radio Networks and include the Westwood One sleeve front. The show is on one CD, one hour, in new condition and comes with its cue sheet in very good condition. Each show had a different theme and within that theme you will hear many Beatles tunes, in depth interviews with Beatles experts, and stories you just havent heard before. In fact this show is known for its rare interviews and behind the scenes information that you will not find on any other show featuring the Beatles. HERE'S ANOTHER EXTRA!!! THESE ARE THE OLDEST SHOWS IN MY COLLECTION!!! They did not come from a program director or dj like most of my shows. These came from a collector. The collector put them in a CD holder with the Westwood One logo in the front and the cue sheet reduced in size in the back of the CD holder. Inside is the show, in great condition and silver backed for extra fidelity as were all the old radio shows on CD. It is a special package, carefully prepared by a collector who treasured them. Now they can be yours, delivered by the POSTAL BEAR!!! I am proud to offer you an opportunity to have some of these rare old shows for your own collection. You will especially love them if you are a fan of the Beatles This show is 94-06 and aired on JANUARY 31, 1994 The theme of this show is COUNTDOWN TO AMERICA IT TELLS THE STORY OF THE BEATLES RISE TO POPULARITY AND THEIR PLAN TO VISIT THE U.S. IT IS A RARE AND WONDERFUL SHOW. YOU ALWAYS LEARN SO MUCH WHEN YOU LISTEN TO JUST ONE HOUR AND THE MUSIC IS FABULOUS! It is an amazing show! What a time. Don't you wish we could return to those innocent days when the music was so wonderful and the times were more fun! What a great show!!!!! You will hear wonderful songs, many of which you have not heard in a long time. And they are all there for you along with interviews from people intimate with the Beatles. You will hear stories that you never heard before from the people who were there. This series has almost as many interview time as music time and the interviews are with people who were there! Now you will be too!!! Here are the songs but as you will find the songs are less important than are the interviews and commentaries that will absolutely blow you away! You Realty Got A Hold On Me, I Want To Hold Your Hand Not a Second, I Saw Her Standing There, She Loves You, Misery Can't Buy Me Love, Hard Day's Night, Baby It's You Hold Me Tibght and I Should Have Known Better WOW!!!!! This is the genuine original show that was sent to the radio station for airing. It is NOT an unauthorized copy but the Real McCoy!!! I personally guarantee that every radio show that I sell is the original show sent to stations. Each show comes from my personal collection of thousands of radio shows of every genre. Stations could use the show anytime during that weekend and then were to return it to the network or destroy it. Of course, many dj's didn't want to destroy such great material (and maybe wanted to make a few bucks as well!) and that is how it ends up available to us all to enjoy. I don't know if I would describe this show as ultra rare , but I know that there are not too many floating around. In fact, when they are on eBay they tend to get bought quickly. You are truly buying a show that will only increase in value and I am selling them at a price very close to what I paid for it. It just doesn't get much better than that, music fans!!!! The show comes with its original national commercials including Trident Gum TDK Tape Trojan PSA and more! Remember that this and all the radio music shows that you see on eBay are not just about the music - the music can be found anywhere. It is the mixture of great music and great announcing that makes it so entertaining. As well, it is a piece of radio and music history. You just aren't going to find these shows around very much longer as everything becomes digitalized and downloaded for play and shows are no longer sent out on CD's. (This has already occured with most radio show series.) Think of what they will be worth in a few years! (IF you wanted to sell.) I am selling to share with other music lovers what I was able to get at a reasonable price. I am saving those shows I treasure the most and sharing the rest with you for very reasonable prices. Those I do not sell, I will just keep! It is a great show and would be a valuable addition to your collection. Good Luck and God Bless You.
