Before Television my family would watch the radio shows. Yes I said watch, we used our imagination. When TV came I missed the radio shows because the imagination was better than what was shown on TV.

I hope you enjoy the shows like I did. Let your mind free to see what is on the show. You can see more with your mind than with your eyes.

Before he went to radio Red Skelton was a Burlesque Comic as many of the comedians in radio and TV. In 1961 and 1962 I spent a lot of time at the the Graand Bulesque in St. Louis. I was 16 and 17 but looked older than the 18 years old you had to be to get in. The Comedy was great (maybe a little on the suggestive side.) I was told in Chicago by one of the comics that the Grand was the best. I saw some of the best like Sally Rand who stripped in her 70s. I learned from retired dancers, who were usherettes, about the business and the parties given by rich men. During intermission I would sit and listen to their stories. I miss Burlesque. It was an art.
