Farmland Favorite

Farmland Favorite
A few weeks ago Tom Cherry's Old Time Radio Show was mentioned in The News-Gazette (7/29/14) and featured a picture of our special guest star, Lauren Donahue. Lauren is a great singer and she really rocked the Farmland Center! The audience loved her and we hope to have her back on the show in the near future. Thanks to reporter/photographer Bill Richmond for coming to the show!

Imagine my surprise as I was reading Astro City #14 when I stumbled upon a possible Pam Bliss sighting! And is that Mr. Sharkipede (a.k.a. Nick Bliss) standing by her side?

On the Road Again

This past Saturday the radio gang loaded up the radio winnebago and took Tom Cherry's Old Time Radio Show to the Muncie Delaware County Senior Center where we performed in front of an intimate and charming audience. It was a lot of fun and I'm sorry we didn't see you there! Thanks again to the best radio cast ever (Sean Heline, Bob Green, Missy Donahue, Katy Wolfe, Angela Gick, and Jerry and Judy Cole, of course!) for creating another funtastic show! More thanks to Mr. Bruce Reynolds for inviting us down and for being such a gracious host! If you like the radio gang to visit your event or venue, just call 765-468-7631.

Radio Review

Tom Cherry's Old Time Radio Show
Just wanted to take a moment to reflect on another great episode of Tom Cherry’s Old Time Radio Show from this past Saturday. Little Women brought out one of our best audiences ever, packed with first time visitors, our beloved regulars, and an abundance of dear friends! When a great audience meets a great cast, you can feel the magic in the air! Plus we learned about “roachkickers” when we played It Pays to be Ignorant! Thanks again to Sean Orlosky, Missy Donahue, Sean Heline, Bob Green, Katy Wolfe, Angela Gick, Judy and Jerry Cole, and our special guests, Lauren Donahue and Dana Jones for being part of a truly memorable show! Already looking forward to our next show in August! Plus we take the show back on the road this Saturday as we perform at the Muncie Delaware County Senior Center at 1:00pm!

It Pays to Be Ignorant: July 2014 (The "Roachkickers" Edition)

On Tom Cherry's Old Time Radio Show, we have a game show segment based on the classic OTR quiz show, It Pays to Be Ignorant. The rules of the game are simple. Our very own banjo picker, Judy Cole, goes into our wonderful audience and picks out our lucky contestant. If this contestant answers our prize-winning question correctly, he or she wins! If he or she answers it incorrectly, well, they basically wasted our time.

However, once chosen, the contestant must first answer our three qualifying questions to prove if he or she has the right stuff to play It Pays to Be Ignorant! In July, Bill was our lucky contestant (For the record, Bill wore bright red cowboy boots. Judy called them "roachkickers". Apparently "roachkickers" have pointed toes that allows the wearer to corner roaches and then kick them. Judy explained that's what they call those types of boots down in Texas. Since Judy once lived in Austin, she spoke with some authority. I visited Austin twice in my lifetime. Great city!). These were Bill's qualifying questions:

1. Did you start a computer company in your parents' garage?

2. Do you often clone your family and friends for fun?

3. Did you ever win The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee? (By the way, I did!)

Bill said no to all three of the questions. Finding his answers satisfactory, the quiz master gave him this prize-winning question:

Question: What do you call a cow with no legs?

Think you know the answer (Bill did!)? Find out in the comment section!
