Update...

Hello, Listeners! It has been an extremely busy time in my "real" life that I have not had much time to work on updating anything regarding the Vintage Entertainment Radio Network. I have a few major projects on the go outside of normal network duties that fall updates are delayed. That being said, I hope to get started on new OTR updates for the Christmas holiday. I am working on digitizing several hours of new programming, so stay tuned. Most of all, thank you for listening!

We will be back in the fall!

Hello, Listeners!

It has been a very busy summer for me, so updates to the Vintage Entertainment Radio Network have been very few and far between. But, stay tuned, I will be back in September with new shows.

In the meantime, I still welcome your comments and questions. I have a new email address specifically for this blog: - VintageMediaCollector@gmail.com

As you can see, my email address truly reflects my passion for Vintage Media as a whole, not only classic Old Time Radio. I have collected hundreds of hours of old radio, television and movie media and I hope I will be able to expand the offerings of this blog to include some of my favorites. More on that later.

I hope you all are having a great summer! Thank you for listening!

-Georges.
