Hello again everyone! It's been around Thanksgiving of last year since you've heard from me, and that may be a good thing, who knows! But LOTS of big happenings going on inside Camp Old Time Radio USA so lets get right to it!
First off.... the BIG news! After years of this questioning, Old Time Radio USA has OFFICIALLY switched it's format to a 24/7 format of old time radio shows! Yes! You read it correctly! Old Time Radio USA is now officially a 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year old time radio station. This has obviously been a long time coming! So you can expect more new old time radio shows being added in the weeks and months to come! This has been requested many times over the years. So, the next question on everyone's mind is "what will happen with the seasonal stream that begins every Thanksgiving eve night?" The answer is very simple. It will continue. For the simple fact of this being a 24/7 station. Old Time Radio USA 24/7 kicked off with a Thanksgiving marathon. That will not change. I will keep to the same scheduled programming through the holidays as I always have. The Thanksgiving Celebration marathon will continue to kick off Thanksgiving eve night. December 7th, the Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day marathon will continue as it always have. Also, an Old Time Radio Christmas marathon will continue as well.
Now, in connection with the above topic comes our New Years eve marathon. If you remember last year, I mentioned on The Behind The Mike Show, that last year was the last year for my annual "Suspense-full" marathon. Because, I have launched a brand new station (or stream) of 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year of Suspense! It's SUSPENSE Radio365! More on that in my next topic of discussion. But what WILL replace the Suspense new years eve marathon? You can expect later this year for new years eve, a 48 hour marathon of...... The Whistler! That's right! The Whistler will take the 48 hour new years eve marathon time slot from now on, starting this year!
So, as stated above, SUSPENSE Radio365 is Old Time Radio USA's new station. All known available episodes are played in chronological order of air date. There are way over 900 episodes in this playlist, which equals over 2 weeks of episodes without repeat (other than episodes that are repeats in the series). What you will not here in the daily playlist are the Christmas episodes. I will be saving those for my special Suspense Christmas marathon later this year. More to come later on that, but if you need your Suspense fix, my station will just be the thing you need!

I will try to write on a more constant or regular basis from here on out. I have some more ideas with this new 24/7 format so be on the lookout in the near future for another blog entry!
That's all I have for now everyone! Thanks for reading this and until next time, this is Barry Slinker saying goodbye for now!
