I remember Gunsmoke and Gene Autry's Melody Ranch. And, there was Gang Busters, Lum & Abner, Ma Perkins, and, Wayne Rainey & Lonnie Glauson broadcasting from WCKY in Cincinatti, 1, Ohio.

I grew up in rural Mississippi in the early '30s and '40s. During much of this time we had no electricity (pre-REA), and so the only access we had to the outside world was via battery-powered radio. I'm too young to know how it came about, but during the early years of WWII we got a battery-powered radio that we would faithfully tune in to the station that carried the news broadcsst of H. V. Kaltenborn. I suppose that this was a security measure to ensure that we were not in eminent danger of a surprise attack. At any rate, in the interest of maintaining the charge on the battery, we had little opportunity to listen to much except the news. On rare occasions we would get to listen to Inner Sanctum, the Amos and Andy show, or perhaps the Phantom. Later, after we got electricity, we had the good fortune of listening to unlimited radio broadcasts, by virtue of clear channel networks that brought in stations from as far away as Cincinnati, Chicago, Kansas City, and Del Rio. I ordeded a "talking harmonica" from Lonny Glauson and Wayne Rainey, and actually learned to play it to some extent--although I was never able to get it to "talk".

If you remember Wayne Rainey, you might remember Hylo Brown and the Foggy Mountain Boys. They are having a tribute for Hylo in Mechanicsburg, Ohio today. They will have live bluegrass bands off and on all day. I'm going. It brings back so many good memories.

Thanks DC for solving the mystery for me. Cuz, you're the phantom. How do I know this? Well, "Only the Phantom Knows", that Lamont Cranston was the phantom. But, don't worry, I'll keep your secret, DC or Lamont or the Ghost who walks or whatever. My problem now is I'm stumped as to who the girl was in that show. For some odd reason, the name Lorali keeps popping up. So, Help me out here. And, while you're about it, the dog was named Devil, But, correct me if the horse's name wasn't hero. GFP
