INFORMATION PLEASE

Monday - Friday at 06:00 AM PST

Information Please is an radio quiz show, created by Dan Golenpaul, which aired on NBC from May 17, 1938, to April 22, 1951. The title was the contemporary phrase used to request from telephone operators what was then called "information" and later called "directory assistance". The series was moderated by Clifton Fadiman. A panel of experts would attempt to answer questions submitted by listeners. For the first few shows, a listener was paid $2 for a question that was used, and $5 more if the experts could not answer it correctly. When the show got its first sponsor (Canada Dry), the total amounts were increased to $5 and $10 respectively. A complete Encyclopædia Britannica was later added to the prize for questions that stumped the panel. The amounts rose to $10 and $25 when Lucky Strike took over sponsorship of the program.

EARL NIGHTINGALE: THE DIRECT LINE

Monday - Friday at 06:30 AM PST

Earl Nightingale V (March 12, 1921 – March 25, 1989) was an American radio speaker and author, dealing mostly with the subjects of human character development, motivation, and meaningful existence.[1] He was the voice during the early 1950s of Sky King, the hero of a radio adventure series, and was a WGN radio program host from 1950 to 1956.[2] Nightingale was the author of The Strangest Secret, which economist Terry Savage has termed "…one of the great motivational books of all time."[3] Known as the “Dean of Personal Development,” Earl Nightingale broadcast his radio programs for more than three decades on over 1,000 radio stations in twelve countries around the world, making him one of the most listened-to broadcasters in history. An inductee into both the Radio Hall of Fame and the International Speakers Hall of Fame and a winner of the prestigious Golden Gavel Award, he dedicated his life to helping others achieve personal success, co-founding Nightingale-Conant, a world leader in personal development. Combining his personal insight with wisdom from the greatest minds in history—from the ancient Greek philosophers to contemporary thought leaders—he provides original and creative commentaries on life and the ways of successful living.

Ripley's Believe It or Not starred non other than Robert Ripley himself as he shared his out-of-this-world discoveries and experiences while traveling around the globe.

HISTORY OF ROCK’N’ROLL

Mondays at 10:00 AM PST

What’s that song? Who’s the performer? How did they get that name? What inspired those words? Why does this music touch my heart … make me smile … make me cry … make me want to dance, romance and fall in love? Whatever happened to the great music I grew up with? For the answers, join legendary radio host Wink Martindale for a two-hour weekly look back at the songs and stars who made the music magic with The History of Rock ‘N’ Roll. Each episode of The History of Rock ‘N’ Roll is built around a theme spotlighting yet another aspect of rock and pop history – from “Leading Ladies of the ‘80s” to “The ‘60s Greatest Dance Hits” … “Inside Beatlemania” to “The Best of Folk-Rock” … “The Magic of Motown” to “The #1 Hits of 1980” … “The Most Romantic Hits of 1978” to “The Super Summer Song Collection” – and many, many more. You’ll hear the songs and the stories behind them from Wink and often from the artists themselves. Here’s the inside scoop on the memorable music that’s formed the soundtrack of our lives.

SHELLAC STACK

Wednesday at 04:00 PM PST

"I’ve been collecting 78 rpm records for most of my life. Something about these heavy, scratchy old discs caught my ear when I was a kid and I’ve been fascinated by them ever since. In this digital age of heavily-produced music that involves layering and piecing together snippets of sound recorded on multiple tracks over days, weeks, or months, then tweaking pitches and rhythms to create a “perfect” performance that never existed, there’s something refreshing to me about placing the needle in the groove of a 78 rpm record and listening to a musical performance captured in a single, uninterrupted “take” by talented musicians working side-by-side. Essentially, each disc offers one or two studio-recorded “live performances” that allow me to appreciate completely the talent of the musicians; I never have to wonder if what I’m really enjoying are the mixing and editing skills of a nameless engineer.

A panel of experts would attempt to answer questions submitted by listeners. For the first few shows, a listener was paid $2 for a question that was used, and $5 more if the experts could not answer it correctly. When the show got its first sponsor (Canada Dry), the total amounts were increased to $5 and $10 respectively. A complete Encyclopædia Britannica was later added to the prize for questions that stumped the panel. The amounts rose to $10 and $25 when Lucky Strike took over sponsorship of the program.

EARL NIGHTINGALE: THE DIRECT LINE

Monday - Friday at 06:30 AM PST

Earl Nightingale V (March 12, 1921 – March 25, 1989) was an American radio speaker and author, dealing mostly with the subjects of human character development, motivation, and meaningful existence.[1] He was the voice during the early 1950s of Sky King, the hero of a radio adventure series, and was a WGN radio program host from 1950 to 1956.[2] Nightingale was the author of The Strangest Secret, which economist Terry Savage has termed "…one of the great motivational books of all time."[3] Known as the “Dean of Personal Development,” Earl Nightingale broadcast his radio programs for more than three decades on over 1,000 radio stations in twelve countries around the world, making him one of the most listened-to broadcasters in history. An inductee into both the Radio Hall of Fame and the International Speakers Hall of Fame and a winner of the prestigious Golden Gavel Award, he dedicated his life to helping others achieve personal success, co-founding Nightingale-Conant, a world leader in personal development. Combining his personal insight with wisdom from the greatest minds in history—from the ancient Greek philosophers to contemporary thought leaders—he provides original and creative commentaries on life and the ways of successful living.

SOUNDS OF SINATRA

Soon the show spread across the country to where it is today, airing on nearly 100 stations every week. This is the only radio program of its kind to have been personally authorized by Frank Sinatra. Sid and Frank developed a personal friendship in 1966. To celebrate the anniversary of the show, Sid was invited to see Frank in Las Vegas.
