Ray Steele And The News

Sinopse

I am a longtime journalist, current producing for RTV6 (WRTV), in Indianapolis. Much of the content here is from my time at crosstown news/talk radio station WIBC. Southerner at heart - hometown is Trenton, Georgia - and though I now live in the IndyCar capital city, pro wrestling, old jazz, science and baseball are my things.

    5 - 27 - 44 I Sustain

    27/05/2019 Duração: 25min

    75 years ago today (May 27, 1944), Glenn Miller's Army Air Force orchestra performed on it's legendary series "I Sustain The Wings" on NBC Radio. Captain Miller was not with the band - they are conducted by Sgt. Jerry Gray, Glenn's top arranger. Miller was on leave, taking care of business interests in California and visiting his mother in Colorado. He was doing so for a reason that wasn't public yet - he and the band were going to Britain to perform for the Allied forces, as the invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe was upon us. The Miller band would be the last music many men and women would hear. RIP to those who gave all.

    It Happened Today: December 12, 1937; 4 Minutes that got Mae West Banned from NBC

    12/12/2018 Duração: 04min

    Mae West was one of the biggest stars in the world by the time she appeared on the Chase & Sanborn Hour, hosted by Edgar Bergen & Charlie McCarthy - the top rated radio show in the U.S. at the time. She made two appearances - one as Eve in a creatively written Adam and Eve sketch, and this one - that was too scandalous for young ears, or so the Catholic Church and others said the next day.

    11/12/2018 Duração: 07min

    Courtesy of the BBC archive - with audio restored (!), the most scandalous story from the Royal Family in the 20th century, IMO. Edward VIII abdicates the British throne so that he can marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson. Notice the door closing at the beginning after the announcer who introduces Edward leaves, and the clear nervousness of Edward.

    07/12/2017 Duração: 14min

    H.V. Kaltenborn was one of the pre-eminent news analysts and commentators of his era, if not the most well known. His regular program that aired from 3:15 until 3:30pm Eastern on Sunday afternoons was, naturally, dedicated to the news of the day. This broadcast is interrupted with breaking news -- long before the term was used -- regarding Japanese attacks, even though the actual attack on Hawaii was ending as this aired.

    CBS had a regularly scheduled news program, The World Today, that aired at 2:30pm Eastern on Sunday afternoons. This was minutes after the first word from Washington of the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor, which had happened just over an hour before. Keep in mind how information moved at that time.

  • First Report of D-Day Invasion

    First Report of D-Day Invasion

    29/05/2017 Duração: 11min

    In the overnight hours of June 6, 1944, Americans who were awake and listening to their radios got the first word that the D-Day invasion that turned the tide of World War II and took so many American, Canadian, British and other Allied lives, had begun. Note how the great newsman Bob Trout on CBS Radio was careful to say these were unsubstantiated reports from German radio - The U.S. had not yet confirmed the invasion. A different time for news, indeed.
