Memorial Day Weekend

Tichnor Brothers Collection
Boston Public Library

Maclane and Jake have fired up the grill and prepared some music and Old Time Radio to celebrate the start of summer, and behind the scenes their lawyer has a business proposition for the station.

The Great Gildersleeve episode "Memorial Day Parade" was originally broadcast on May 30th, 1943.

Music in this episode includes: Summer's A Comin In by Nat King Cole, Summertime by Frank Sinatra, On the Boardwalk in Atlantic City by the Charioteers, The Things We Did Last Summer by Jo Stafford, and In the Good Old Summertime by Bing Crosby.

A communications student here at Idaho State University, Maclane has had a lifelong interest in radio. From listening to old time radio of decades past, to the modern commercial sports talk, country, or top 40 stations, the small town community stations, and now getting involved in public radio, Mac knows there's plenty to appreciate and learn about.
Brother of Maclane, Jake is a cultural hobbyist and curator of pre-1960s publications, radio and various ephemera. His collection of outdated media formats takes up a considerable amount of space and is frankly beginning to become a nuisance. A man can only own so many reel-to-reel machines before he needs to look into a storage locker.
