Golden Age of Radio

Classic Broadcasts of Comedy, Drama, and Entertainment

Golden Age of Radio…When America Listened

In the days when actors stood behind microphones reading from scripts, the magic of imagination swept our country. Script writers, sound effects specialists, musicians and directors brought us stories from new worlds of cowboys and private eyes, situation comedies and erie science fiction tales. Evenings were spent huddling around the radio to catch every snippet of the latest episode.

Thankfully, thousands of these shows were captured on tape and can be heard again.

In 2014 KXCR was offered access to an extensive archive of old time radio dramas, comedy shows and news from the golden age 30s, 40s, 50s decades. It was a treasure trove of the very best shows of the era.

In addition to that contribution Larry Herr has since been lending his meticulous producing skills to Saturday’s “The Best of Swing” show at 7:00 pm which precedes his “Golden Age of Radio” selection at 8:00 pm. The pair has become the highlight of KXCR’s locally produced programming.

Larry epitomizes the volunteer spirit that keeps 90.7 fm on the air. When one tunes in, who knows what we might hear. The Shadow? Fibber McGee? or an on-the-scene report from Edward R. Morrow.

Thanks, Larry!

Juke In the Back

Your Host, Matt The Cat

Juke In The Back presents the soul that came before rock n’ roll: 1950s rhythm and blues. Each week, this underrated and rollicking music plays on that old Rockola Jukebox in the back.

These songs are the building blocks of rock n’ roll. These are the records that inspired Elvis and single-handedly led to the rock n’ roll explosion of the mid-1950s. Big Joe Turner, Fats Domino, Little Richard, Ruth Brown, Ray Charles, Wynonie Harris, LaVern Baker, Roy Brown, Joe Liggins, Professor Longhair and many more take center stage on The Juke In The Back. Matt The Cat hosted a similar program on XM Satellite Radio called “Harlem” and now he brings this great music and information back to radio.

Matt The Cat has spent the last 20 years in radio, beginning at the tender age of 13 when his career began, hosting an Oldies radio show on the little 710 watts community radio station WBMT in Boxford, MA.  He attended Emerson College in Boston, where he hosted a weekly classic soul music show called “The Soul Bucket.” It was there he interviewed the legendary Peter Wolf of the J. Geils Band. Others included Barrence Whitfiled, Bernie Worell, Walter “Wolfman” Washington, Luther Guitar Jr. Johnson, and Otis Clay.

My radio career began at WBMT-FM 88.3 in Boxford, MA. I was 13 years old. I hosted a show called “Friday Night At The Oldies” from 6-10pm every Friday Night,on WBMT. It ran from January, 1989 until June of 1994.  It was here that I learned what worked and sounded good and what didn’t. I wouldn’t be anywhere today if it wasn’t for Glen Walker, the general manager of WBMT for giving me a chance to open a mic and discover what came out. We all have to begin somewhere and it’s really too bad that everyone can’t have access to a radio station like this to start out on. Where’s the radio talent of the future going to learn how it’s done?

Mind’s Eye

Your Host, Greg Williard


MindsEye Radio serves people who cannot read the printed word.  Some listeners are totally blind. Others have low vision from macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, trauma or glaucoma. There are listeners who can no longer turn the pages of a newspaper because they have had a stroke or have Parkinson’s disease. Still others are unable to read because of learning disabilities, such as dyslexia. Anyone who cannot read a traditional newspaper because of a disability is eligible for service from MindsEye.


How we began: In the early 1970’s, there was no good way for blind people to get the contents of the newspaper. WMRY’s Talking Book was born in 1973 through a partnership of Oblates, Lions Clubs, other community organizations and many dedicated individuals. The region finally had a way to provide readings of newspapers and magazines to thousands of people who were blind. It was the third reading service of its kind in the world.  Now at Mind’s eye Radio, poets, artists, producers, and directors collaborate to create a visionary hour for your imagination to explore.

On Being

Your Host, Krista Tippett


Krista Tippett, creator and host of the public radio show “On Being,” has been honored with the 2013 National Humanities Medal. Tippett received the award from President Obama at a White House ceremony, along with nine other Americans whose work has broadened the nation’s cultural understanding and engagement with the humanities. It covers a broad range of topics, drawing out scientists, theologians, poets, artists, and activists.

In announcing the award, the White House cited Tippett’s achievements in “thoughtfully delving into the mysteries of human existence. On the air and in print, Ms. Tippett avoids easy answers, embracing complexity and inviting people of all faiths, no faith, and every background to join the conversation.”

“On Being” is heard on more than 330 U.S. public radio stations and globally by podcast. The program and its multi-media platforms, originally called “Speaking of Faith” when it launched weekly in 2003, has garnered multiple other honors, including a Peabody Award and three Webby Awards. Tippett also is the author of two books, including the New York Times bestseller, “Einstein’s God.”

“I am so honored by this recognition,” Tippett said. “It’s an affirmation of the vision behind our project of the past 10 years, that it should be possible to create intelligent, robust conversation about meaning and morality, across our divides — to open imaginations and possibilities rather than shutting them down.”

One of the latest Story Telling episodes for the History of Florence was just recorded at the museum.  Called the “Renaissance of Bay Street”, five of the early “pioneers” in the rehabilitation of Florence’s derelict waterfront told their stories about coming to this area and enlisting theirs and the the creativity of others to bring Old Town back to life and make it a viable living and working environment, visited by people from all over the world.

Soul Deluxe is a weekly, two-hour radio program featuring eclectic mix sets by Phoenix-based DJ Byron Fenix. The show spotlights Soul music and various genres that either gave rise to or were influenced by it, including Electronic, Disco, Funk, Hip-Hop, House, Jazz, and R&B. In addition to the music, the show exposes listeners to a variety of emerging urban-themed artists and musicians.

The program has its genesis in “Unity Vibe,” an earlier mix show launched in late 2008 on community radio station Radio Phoenix, which was hosted by Phoenix-based DJ RMC (Ruben Candelaria). One of RMC’s regular co-hosts was an emerging mix DJ by the name of Byron Fenix. When RMC decided to end “Unity Vibe” in mid 2010 to focus on his family, Byron took over his old time slot and launched the weekly radio program now known as Soul Deluxe. Since “Unity Vibe” focused on spotlighting house music, the early days of “Soul Deluxe” followed in the same direction.

As time went on, Byron decided to focus his mixes on more soulful cuts from a variety of genres including electronic, disco, jazz, and R&B. The show also began to spotlight emerging urban artists and musicians. Past guests on the show have included dance music artists Mochico & Boogie, Native American artist Damien Jim, and Byron’s former co-host DJ RMC.

Soul Deluxe is produced by Radio Phoenix in Phoenix, Arizona, and is distributed nationally by Native Voice One (NV1).

Team Human

Produced by Luke Robert Mason and Josh Chapdelaine

With Douglas Rushkoff


Autonomous technologies, runaway markets and weaponized media seem to have overturned civil society, paralyzing our ability to think constructively, connect meaningfully, or act purposefully. It feels as if civilization itself were on the brink, and that we lack the collective willpower and coordination necessary to address issues of vital importance to the very survival of our species.

The simplest way to understand and change our predicament is to recognize that being human is a team sport. We cannot be fully human, alone. Anything that brings us together fosters our humanity. Likewise, anything that separates us makes us less human, and less able to exercise our will.

Team Human is a podcast striving to amplify human connection. Each week we are engaging in real-time, no-holds-barred discussions with people who are hacking the machine to make it more compatible with human life, and helping redefine what it means to stay human in a digital age.

This is a syndicated show and all episodes are available at this address:
