Sorry, I've gotten lazy!

Hey all; so sorry about the lack of posting.  I have my attention elsewhere and my energy went that way.  I still have a bunch of scripts to post and I want to do that and I hopefully will.  Thanks for putting up with me.

Several magazine stories/blurbs added

There are 10-15 new magazine articles available over at the Vic and Sade in Print Media portion of the web site.  You can view the newest ones by seeing the first three (below the search words up top), then choosing "older posts" which will you take you back.

A new episode! 34-09-28 Rush Choreographs Principal's Visit

Hey kids, we have a "new" episode (in script form) and that is the funny 34-09-28 Rush Choreograph's Principal's Visit.  Vic has some great lines in this one.

Script and commentary for 41-09-25 Bright Kentucky Hotel Speaker

It's fun to read and re-live this episode where Vic is (almost) humiliated once again, poor guy.  See a new commentary by Mis' Crowe and her transcription of the episode, here.

Transcription and Mis' Crowe commentary for 41-10-08 Sade's Surprise Christmas Gift

Mis' Crowe has once again provided a transcription and commentary -- this time for 41-10-08 Sade's Surprise Christmas Gift.

Script for 35-05-08 Graduation Gift Hustler

We're getting there slowly!  And another script is done, this for 35-05-08 Graduation Gift Hustler.

PQ Ribber reads a 'Vic and Sade' fiction

PQ Ribber reads a 'Vic and Sade' fiction written in the early 1940's; you'll be surrounded there also by some hack (Jimbo) who has written a few little tunes about 'Vic and Sade'.  It's all in fun - please do not throw vegetables at the participants!

That shocking washing machine!

Very, very, very, very, very questionable

"New" Flynn

Wynn Wright, Director, 1934

Brand new information!

Bernardine Flynn Radio Guide cover

Although I have seen this cover Xeroxed (and always in black and white), this is the very first time I have ever seen this cover in color.

Here's something new and perplexing!

New script for 44-07-20 Uncle Fletcher Talks Business

A new script for 44-07-20 Uncle Fletcher Talks Business.  You won't be able to tell how many HOURS I spent cleaning this script.  All you will see is a pretty script.  It was FULL of pencil marks.  Kiss me, I'm exhausted.

New script for 44-06-26 Thimble Club Bazaar

Moving right along, we have a new script for 44-06-26 Thimble Club Bazaar; I also removed as much of the pencil time marking as possible and included all of the script that was marked out due to time constraints.

New script for 44-04-06 Sade Rummy/Russell's Motorcycle

Another new (cleaned up) script for us to enjoy and a new entry at the main site for
44-04-06 Sade Rummy/Russell's Motorcycle.

My next "Vic and Sade" project

There are oodles of things I'd like to do before I die and about 99% of those things revolve around this crazy "Vic and Sade" show.  I have unfinished projects everywhere I look and I know there are a bazillion errors in this website (grammatical and otherwise).  All that aside, when I get done inputting these scripts and making the additions and changes, I'd love to make up a database of the chronology of the show.  We have a chronology of the production of the show. but what I would like to do is have a quick way where can see what went on episode to episode.  I'm not sure exactly how I will do this or how to keep track of these things... a real database may be the way to go.

If anyone has any ideas or would like to help in this project, please let me know.  I suspect this will start sometime in December.

A script for 35-02-22 Vic's Dinner Invitation to Mr. Buller

Until now, we only had a scrawny script synopsis for 35-02-22 Vic's Dinner Invitation to Mr. Buller. However, we have been blessed now with a full script.  It was loads of fun to do and it was pleasure to remove most of the pencil markings.  That's a ton of work (it took about 6 hours) but we are rewarded with a nicer script.

I totally re-wrote and added on to the original post, so enjoy!

New script for 44-06-15 A Letter From Bess - Listen Please

And so it begins - again!

A new script is up for the show we call 44-06-15 A Letter From Bess - Listen Please.  It's fun to see what stuff was taken out due to time constraints, if nothing else (in this one, Vic was supposed to talk about what high times he has down at the office, with his coconut oil, tropical music and all...)

A Couple of Notes

You'll be happy to note that my scanner is working very well.  I have found many scripts that we previously didn't have and I'm not through looking yet!

A couple of notes I found:
  • For years, I assumed it would be impossible to get the "Vic and Sade" audio that belonged to the Library of Congress.  I am sure a lot of you assumed the same thing.  Well, I just found out that Barbara Schwarz obtained a lot of that material from the LOC for The Friends of Vic and Sade, (I assume in the 1980's).  Seems logical, although, I never knew about it until today.  I'm pretty sure this is the material we have from the 1944 run.
  • In the early days of the internet, there seems to have been quite a fear from The Friends of Vic and Sade that if they posted any "Vic and Sade" audio online that the FBI would come calling.
In very sort time I will be uploading these scripts, adding new episodes, news media blurbs, photos, etc. So be on the lookout.

Good News

Hey everyone!  We got another box of contributions from a former Friends of Vic and Sade member and I am going through it all now.  I also got my scanner to work on my new computer, so it looks like there will be new material to post soon.

We were going to do a Vic and Sadecast this week; this will probably be postposned a bit.

Vic and Sadecast 22

Yep, I PQ Ribber and I finally did show #22.  Sorry for the delay.  Find it it here.

Behind the Bright Kentucky Hotel Nemesis?

This may not be an original idea put forth here; it is almost impossible to remember everything that I have heard and read about "Vic and Sade" throughout the time I have been following the show as closely as I have.  There's a good chance I am either repeating the thoughts of Paul Rhymer (from a magazine or newspaper article), from a member of "The Friends of Vic and Sade" or I could have read it on a forum somewhere in the last six years.  However, I think it is an original idea.  And it really is as simple as adding one and one together for the informed fan.

Though we have little to go by, there seems to be no doubt that the engineers of the Chicago-Alton Railway had it in for the bachelors at the Bright Kentucky Hotel.  One reason we know this can found in the article here.

And who is the one guy on the show that "has it in" for Mr. Gumpox (and Howard)?  That's right kids, Mr. Donahue the Chicago-Alton Railway engineer.  I am quite certain a story is missing where we find out Mr. Gumpox (or Howard) has committed some other atrocity against Mr. Donahue and in doing so, has riled him up so much that he gets the whole gang of engineers to terrorize the Bright Kentucky whenever they fly past.

Vic and Sadecast out any day now

The 22nd Vic and Sadecast should be out any day!

The effect of Barbara Schwarz and the Friends of Vic and Sade

"Vic and Sade" - This chart clearly shows that it was around 1950 that the show was on it's last legs.  Maybe more importantly, it seems to show how popular Barbara Schwarz and the Friends of Vic and Sade made the show.  (There is no data after 2008, so there is no way for us to check recent popularity).

FAIL! Jimbo forgets Vic and Sadecast...

Uh oh.  How did I forget?  Dunno, but I did.  I hope to have a new one to you by the middle of the week.  Sorry!

Previously untried script re-enactment!!!

You know, I'll be the first person in the world to admit that my acting abilities are jack squat, so to speak.  And I probably have no business venturing into the hallowed halls of "Vic and Sade" territory.

But dang it all, I've gone and done it and take on Rush's role in the 1933 "Vic and Sade" script entitled, "Molasses Taffy".

PQ Ribber takes on the role as Vic and the two of us - in the spirit of honoring Paul Rhymer, Art Van Harvey and Bill Idelson - have a go at this radio play.  The play is originally from 1932 but it was re-done in 1933.  There is a long version and a short version.  We are doing the longer version.

You can find it here.  Feedback is welcomed - either here or at the ONSUG, where the show is featured.

Vic and Sadecast #20!!

Get out your ears and have a listen at the 20th Vic and Sadecast.

New Vic and Sadecast delayed a week

The next Vic and Sadecast is delayed one week because of the Hurricane Matthew.  It wrecked havoc with my schedule, etc.  I hope the delay will not keep you from looking for the show next weekend.

Blue Tooth in Series I

Thanks to Mis' Sarah Cole, who let me in on the fact that actor Leonard Smith was on a recent Those Were the Days podcast.  In the podcast, he says he played Blue Tooth Johnson right after Bill Idelson went into the Navy.

Previously, we had been led to believe the actor who played that part was Dick Thoerne, but now we know different.  If Smith's name doesn't ring a bell, well, he also played the part of Stretch Snodgrass on radio's "Our Miss Brooks".

The Vic and Sadecast #18

We're late, but we made it!

New podcast is coming

There's been a slight delay in the upcoming podcast.  It should be out before August 25th.  Thanks!

The Vic and Sadecast #16 is up!

Wow, it's hard to believe, but as of today, there are 16 Vic and Sadecasts. 

Yep, the new one is up.  Hear PQ Ribber and Jimbo have fun with butter patties and chewing gum. We snuck in an Uncle Fletcher episode to boot.

The mystery of Thelma Todd

Thelma Todd was a nice-looking, funny actress who worked with the likes of Laurel and Hardy and the Marx Brothers.  She mysteriously died in 1935.

What is interesting to the fans of "Vic and Sade" is that the cast of the show received a letter from her, shortly after they were informed of her death.  It may have been that the postal card was the last thing she had written, or certainly, one of the very last things she wrote.

There's a new book about her and her death and the mystery behind it all.  Whether or not the book addresses the "Vic and Sade" postal card or not is not known by me.

Smile of Pity: the 12th Vic and Sadecast!

PQ Ribber and Jimbo return in The Vic and Sadecast 012: Smile of Pity. PQ has some valuable insight regarding a "Vic" who isn't Vic, maybe! Interesting listening! Bring your headphones!

Thursday, June 23, 2016

Watch the skies!

I'm alive and well and dancing! Well, perhaps not dancing but I suspect within 48 hours, you very well could be enjoying another Vic and Sadecast. Watch the skies!

Still sick - Vic and Sadecast is on hold...

Sorry everyone, but I am still quite ill and so, no Vic and Sadecast until this sickness is over. Don't give up on me - I hope to be back soon.

Saturday, June 4, 2016

No Vic and Sadecast this week

Hey everyone, I'm sorry to report that because of my illness, a heat wave and a yet-to-form but-soon-will tropical storm that is (or will be within hours) headed directly my way with about 3-4" of rain, there will be no Vic and Sadecast this week.

I hope to return (with PQ Ribber) next week, although there is a chance that the podcast will go on hiatus during the Summer and would return in October - but that has yet to be determined. Please check back next weekend for more details.

The Vic and Sadecast #10 is out now

Come and get it.

The next Vic and Sadecast is right around the corner

The Vic and Sadecast is running a little behind again this time around.  With three contributors, it remains on a flexible schedule.  Perhaps there will be 2 different podcasts soon (one with the three contributors and another with just two contributors).

If you are thoroughly confused yet, just let me tell you that the Vic and Sadecast should be out any day now!

Changes coming to the "Vic and Sade in Print and Media" site

edited 4/26/16

I'm in the process of removing the date tags and also the tags that say, "Vic and Sade Radio Show" to the articles in the Print and Media website.

What this what it will do: it will un-clutter the website.  That seems to be the only problem I am having there, as it is is very simple to find any article I want or need as it simply takes a hint of what you are looking for anyway.  The dates were a major clutter problem - mainly because I accidentally used two methods of dating (way to go, goofball Jimbo)!  The tag of "radio show" was -mostly- redundant to say the least.

Anyway, it's not going to take place overnight but in 10 days or so, I should be done.

The Vic and Sadecast #9 is out!

Looking for the Vic and Sadecast 9?

Vic and Saved!

For some reason, the Library of Congress has chosen to save the "Vic and Sade" episode, "Decoration Day" as part of their collection, according to this article from the Washington Post.

Since "Decoration Day" was chosen, one would think whoever was in charge of choosing simply took the recording that was easiest to retrieve (either physically or via list) and chose that one, since it is the earliest known "Vic and Sade" recording left that we know about.

David Whitehouse in The Mysterious Stranger

David Whitehouse (directed by Homer Heck) did an episode of "Author's Playhouse" in 1944, called "The Mysterious Stranger".  The tale is a bit different and fun to listen to, as David was playing Russell at the time on "Vic and Sade".

Find it here.

Yet another Vic and Sade podcast!

True to our word, the 7th edition of The Vic and Sadecast is on the net and ready for you to spend an hour with.

While we do take the time every podcast to listen to three shows, three fans of "Vic and Sade" also share their own personal insight on each episode as well.

There's no interrupting or loss of train of thought, as all the critique is recorded separately.  I think this makes for a smoother podcast.

So if you haven't ever listened before, sit down for an hour and hear for yourself what's going on.

Find it here!

Wow. it's the Vic and Sadecast #6!

The Vic and Sadecast #5 - a trip to Bloomington

The Vic and Sadecast (a podcast) travels to beautiful Bloomington, Illinois, home of Paul Rhymer.  Our correspondent, 'Shambles Constant' has spent many of his last few days traveling to various V/S sites, reading up on these places and sharing personal stories about his time at these places.  It's unique and well worth an hour of your time.

Please feel free to comment there and let us know you are listening; we'd appreciate it.

Wednesday, January 6, 2016

Thanks to all the commenters

I was looking at the comments on the main site and I am proud of you all and your comments that add such insight to the show. There's no doubt "Vic and Sade" will someday be lost completely as you'd expect all the fans will go by the wayside.

However, your comments will hopefully live on as long as these websites exist. Please take the time to contribute your thoughts to any of the shows via comment. If you have more to say - drop me a line, we ALL wish to read your thoughts and they are welcome.

Thanks to all who have commented in the past.
