SO HERE ARE THE BIG QUESTIONS:

WHAT IS A RADIO SHOW?

WHY COLLECT THEM?

WHERE DO THEY COME FROM?

Well, those are good questions, especially if you have never known of them.

First allow me tell you my own personal story of discovering the wonder of radio shows.

I discovered radio shows quite by accident while reading one of my favorite (long since departed) magazines called "Discoveries" (It was later bought by the same company that publishes "Goldmine" which I personally always considered a lesser publication, but that is another story.

This was before ebay became the driving force in radio show sales (and everything else) in the later 1990's.

I was especially attracted in "Discoveries" to a two page (or more) spread in each issue by a guy called "The Old Hippie".

Let me tell you, the Old Hippie had it all. He was a real pioneer. Way before anyone knew what radio shows even were let alone that they could be bought as rarities, he had the market cornered.

Most shows that he advertised were way beyond my budget but I drooled over those pages every issue and once in awhile I could afford one or two.

Now, I have attempted in my own humble way to take on the mantle of "The Old Hippie". I have listed over 10,000 unique radio shows of all genres for you all to drool over, and most at prices, hopefully, that collectors can better afford! I want to make available to collectors what I could not afford and especially in these days of higher prices and lesser availability.

Radio shows are harder and harder to find in quantity and the prices for the ones still out there just go higher and higher as they disappear from the market. However, because of my large presence on eBay, I am always being contacted with selling offers, some of which I take advantage of and some I have to pass on because of the prices. I have found that by buying in bulk, even when many or most of the shows are lesser known but still amazing shows, I can offer the best prices on all titles.

So, again, what is a radio show?

Well, those are good questions, especially if you have never known of them.

Radio Shows are syndicated productions by one of several large and small distributors who supply broadcast product to radio stations normally during weekends when the usual air personalities have a break.

Many air on Saturday or Sunday evenings or during overnight segments.

They often feature some of the best known voices for their genre from across the country thus the Dick Clark's and Casey Kasem's and Rick Dees and Dick Bartley and so many others.

People collect them for various reasons.

Some just collect the series because they like it and want them all.

Some collect their favorite artists or genre of music. Rather than an album by the artist or a compilation downloaded through iTunes or wherever, they have a unique presentation of their favorite artist or music not available anywhere else and always with dj comments which were very entertaining.

Some collect interviews with their favorite artists as most shows had interview segments.

Some collect commercials especially old car commercials but certainly not limited to only those.

AND, these shows are in limited quantity.

They were pressed just for syndicated stations in the United States.

Many have just a few still in circulation.

Some of the more popular shows may have as few as a couple hundred of each week's show pressed but think about it. A couple hundred for some 200 million Americans and millions of overseas collectors who look for unique presentations of their favorite artists or form of music is about as rare as rare can be.

THIS SHOW IS DICK BARTLEY'S AMERICAN GOLD, ONE OF THE BEST KNOWN OLDIES SHOWS OF ALL TIME featuring either one four hour theme or two, two hour themes on each show along with other great oldies interspersed among them.

Dick started his syndication career after an illustrious career at some of the nation's top stations in Chicago and New York after starting on a local Virginia station. He hosted a Saturday night live call in request show starting in 1982 for the now defunct RKO Radio Networks and continued it on the United Stations Radio Network where he also hosted a daily hour long themed oldies program - Solid Gold Scrapbook - for six years - that's over 1500 unique shows.

He then did programs for Westwood One Radio Networks and then joined ABC Radio for American Gold, a weekly four hour oldies show that ran from 1991 until 2009. He now continues weekly shows through his own production company.

American Gold each week had either one four hour theme or two two hour themes. In between were great oldies from the early formative years of rock.

When you think oldies there are really only a few names and Dick Bartley and Dick Clark are the big ones

THIS SHOW AIRED JANUARY 15, 1994 AND WAS SHOW # 94-03

AND FEATURED,

A FOUR HOUR TRIBUTE TO THE TOP HITS AND HEADLINES FROM THE CLASS OF 1970 ALONG WITH UNIQUE AND GREAT INTERVIEWW AS DETERMINED BY BILLBOARD MAGAZINE ALONG WITH OTHER GREAT HITS FROM THE 60'S AND EARLY 70'S.

THE SHOW COMES WITH ITS ORIGINAL CUE SHEETS WHICH ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.

IT COMES WITH INTERVIEWS, SPECIAL FEATURES, AND GREAT ENTERTAINMENT CLIPS

ALONG WITH OTHER EARLY ROCK GREATS.

ALL AMERICAN GOLD COUNTDOWNS WERE DETERMINED THROUGH BILLBOARD MAGAZINE, THE INDUSTRY'S BIBLE OF MUSIC

THE SHOW COMES WITH ITS CUE SHEETS AS PICTURED.

IT COMES ON ONE 4 CDS IN MINT LIKE NEW CONDITION DISTRIBUTED BY THE ABC RADIO NETWORKS AND WAS PLAYED ONLY ONCE ON THE DATE OF NATIONAL NETWORK BROADCAST.

AND IS VERY RARE

This is because most stations just threw these radio shows away after network broadcast since they could not be aired again because of the dated commercial content and most stations had limited storage space. (Believe me I know I work at one!)

So it is likely that very few still exist and they are increasingly hard to find.

RADIO SHOWS were first distributed on reel to reel tape if the show goes back that far into the 60's, then later on lp, later on CD and even later (after 2000 for most shows) on CDR. Now they are not available at all to collectors since they are distributed by digital download much like you get your music from iTunes.

These shows become rarer and rarer every day because the people who buy them hold on to them and the people who sell them, like me, are running out of them.

The shows that you get now and hold on to will never decrease in value and only increase.

I have prided myself since the start to provide the best and fairest cost with a guarantee that you will be happy or I refund your money. I sell them for near what I bought them for. I give volume discounts and discount postage always. As the postal service increases their rates, my shipping rates over the years have decreased.

And, I have one of the biggest radio show libraries in the world consisting of way over ten thousand unique shows, so many that I don't even know all that I have and am sometimes amazed when I go to look for one show and find another that I did not realize I had.

Finally, it is Americana at its best.

Whether the show be from the 60's or 2000's, rock, countdown, oldies, country, classical, religious, jazz or big band, it is unique and home grown.

And you just can't find them anywhere.

Even record stores that still exist will rarely have any. Radio shows are wonderful representations of the real golden age of music radio.

And every one you buy is an original, not a copy, not a remake - all are limited editions in the hundreds at most and most, like this special show, much less. Once you get hooked, like me, it is a love affair for life!

My prices are guaranteed to save! Others say they are the lowest for radio shows on the internet - compare shop. Add their prices and shipping costs and compare with mine. You WILL save and the more you buy the more you save. And check my feedback. That says it all. I will make you happy.

THESE SHOWS COME FROM MY PERSONAL COLLECTION. YOU WILL NEVER SEE A BIGGER VARIETY OF SHOWS FROM THIS GREAT SERIES ANYWHERE EXCEPT FROM KEITH'S KOLLECTABLES

REMEMBER, This is the genuine original show that was sent to the radio station for airing. It is NOT an unauthorized copy but the Real McCoy !!! I personally guarantee that every radio show that I sell is the original show sent to stations.

You are truly buying a show that will only increase in value and I am selling them at a price very close to what I paid for it.

Remember that this and all the radio music shows that you see on eBay are not just about the music - the music can be found anywhere. It is the mixture of great music in themes and great announcing that makes it so entertaining.

As well, it is a piece of radio and music history.

Think of what they will be worth in a few years! (IF you wanted to sell.) I am selling to share with other music lovers what I was able to get at a reasonable price.

It is a great show and would be a valuable addition to your collection.

As always, for U.S. and International buyers, I charge only shipping on the first cd or single lp show you buy so the more you buy the more money you will save. (International buyers pay for the first multi lp show and an additional $8 for each multi lp show to help with the excessive shipping costs for overseas shipments. Otherwise all items ship for no extra charge)

Good Luck and God Bless You
