Helen and Johnny on the “Walden and Patricia Show”

February 4, 2019

H & J with W & P

Last month, Helen and I had the honor and privilege to be guests on the “Walden and Patricia Show” on the internet radio station “Yesterday USA”.  “Yesterday USA” carries Old Time Radio and other nostalgia related programming so they invited us on to discuss our “An Evening of Old Time Radio” presentations in downtown Mount Holly at Breaking Grounds Coffee & Cafe and our “Woo-Hoo Wednesdays” on the internet radio station “Radio Once More”.

It was a delightful conversation with Walden and Patricia and Larry Gassman joined in with the discussion as well to add to the fun.  Yesterday USA uses the conference application Zoom on their Live Shows and they create a “Zoom Room”.  The Zoom application has great sound quality and allowed Helen and I to speak together and also allowed us to goof around with Walden, Patricia, and Larry and play some of our usual sound effects that the “Woo-Hoo Wednesday” listeners are accustomed to listening to on “Radio Once More”.

We plan to reciprocate and invite Walden and Patricia later in the year to “Woo-Hoo Wednesday” and discuss their “Yesterday USA” radio show and discuss the upcoming SPERDVAC (The Society To Preserve and Encourage Radio Drama, Variety and Comedy) convention in November.  Larry Gassman currently serves as President, Larry’s twin brother John Gassman serves as Vice President, and Walden also serves as a board member of SPERDVAC.  This years SPERDVAC convention is at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Costa Mesa, California and begins Thursday evening November 7th, and ends Sunday Morning November 11th.  Helen and I attended the SPERDVAC convention in 2017 while we were vacationing in Las Vegas.  That is when I had the opportunity to meet and speak with Walden.  Helen and I are planning on attending the SPERDVAC convention in November and we look forward to seeing Walden, along with Larry and John Gassman and many other Old Time Radio friends.

Again, Helen and I wish to thank Walden, Patricia, and Larry for inviting us to chat with them on “Yesterday USA” and we’ll see you in November at SPERDVAC.
