Rush: Good evening, Matt!

Matt1: Hello Rush!

Rush: How are things in your world tonight?

Matt1: Pretty good, thnx….yourself?

Rush: Busy, but stable!

Rush: As I always say…I cannot complain!

Matt1: Hope it’s a good “busy”

Matt1: Nope!

Rush: Oh, yes, not bad busy.

Rush: We are getting more and more serious about a possible relocation to Iowa.

Matt1: BIG move!

Matt1: Family?

Rush: I might be flying out in two weeks to see some things.

Rush: Yes…all of us, but not immediately.

Rush: The daughters will finish their respective schools, first.

Matt1: I meant the reason for the possible relo

Rush: Not this June but next.

Matt1: The weather would be a HUGE adjustment

Rush: many reasons, the first being affording to live without working full time the rest of our lives.

Rush: yes, that is true.

Rush: But, the way I se it is if others have done it so can we.

Matt1: CA is a tough State….I’ve had a few friends who moved out in frustration

Rush: I have lived her my whole life, and I do not take this decision lightly.

Rush: It really IS tough here.

Rush: And it is crazier and getting crazier!

Rush: look at the news about SF and LA…

Matt1: I moved from North (PA) to South (FL), but I know I couldn’t handle the cold weather anymore.

Rush: San Diego is not far behind.

Rush: Yes.

Matt1: I truly understand

Matt1: I shake my head watching the news….Like another country there sometimes

Rush: Also, we are now a one party rued state, and we are seeing the results.

Rush: (ruled)

Matt1: Yep

Matt1: My one friend got SO mad with CA….Loved it there and felt forced to move

Rush: I might admit to you this, but, prior to the last election I was contemplating some other country, say Portugal.

Rush: Anyway….

Matt1: I understand, but I have faith in the system, as broken as it appears at times

Rush: Life is an adventure!

Matt1: Never a dull moment

Rush: Yes, you are right…if enough people continue to believe in our system.

Len Freeman has joined this room

Rush: Good evening, Len!

Matt1: Hello Len!


Len Freeman: Hi friends

Rush: How are you doing tonight, Len?

Rush: Len, do you live in the Minneapolis area?

Rush: I seem to recal that you might be around there.

Matt1: Have we listened to tonights short before?

Rush: Inyes.

Rush: (Yes.

Rush: It is a seven-part series.

Matt1: I knew it was familiar, but wasn’t sure if there were multiple shows

Len Freeman: Yes… I was just looking back at your chat here… We are fairly close to Iowa depending on where you’re considering.

Rush: They run 15 minutes.

Rush: AH!

Rush: I will be flying out to Iowa in a little over two weeks it seems. I think I have a three-hour layover in Minneapolis.

Rush: IF you are nearby.

Len Freeman: One of my sons graduated from U Iowa, (Iowa City).. a great college town, and home of their writing program.

Len Freeman: A three hour layover… hmmm.

Rush: That is a possible college for one or both of my daughters.

Louise has joined this room

Len Freeman: It’s a great school.. happy to talk with them or you about it. David

Rush: Should we make the move…which is looking more so to be the case each day!

Matt1: Hello Louise!

Rush: hello, Louise!


Len Freeman: David is now at Ann Arbor on a three year fellowship,

Louise: Okay, just lurking in the background as I eat dinner. But I have to ask: why Iowa???

Rush: You made it early for our radio drama tonight!

Len Freeman: Let me know when you’re scheduled to be at MSP airport and maybe we can connect.

Rush: Affordable and we have been there a few times and enjoyed it.

Rush: Looking to relocate.

Louise: Small town or farm?

Len Freeman: David would be happy to talk with them as well. He loved the U.

Rush: As I noted earlier, I hope we don’t need to work full time the rest of our lives to survive!

Rush: TYSM, Len!

Rush: We have been thinking about this for quite some time, actually.

Rush: We even considered it when we drove through in 1992.

Rush: Well….

Rush: should we set up our “radios”?

Matt1: Ready to go here!

Louise: Twisting the dial here…

Rush: I got mine set…

Len Freeman: For what it’s worth, Iowa has some very nice scholarship money… (and you don’t have to bribe anyone). David got halfl tuition his first year.

Rush: ((Dialing in the frequency sound…)

Len Freeman: And then lots of nice grants thereafter….

angel & fox: DOOLEY PONDERING. Excellent attorney, Pondering, excellent.

Rush: Yes.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hm. Chan sounds a little wimpy so far.

angel & fox: I’m at 2:22.

Rush: I see the time on the LOWER portion.

Rush: I was looking at the upper reading!

angel & fox: Both cousins…i’m lost already.

Rush: Chan will assist you, Angel!

angel & fox: MANY murders in Chicago. Have many alibi.

Rush: This is Walter Connolly as Charlie Chan.

angel & fox: I need Chan to throw a rope over a branch of the family tree.

Rush: This drama aired on September 17, 1936.

Rush: Connolly was Chan on the radio 1932-1936.

angel & fox: Walter Connolly sounds like Fred Allen before the adenoids.’

Rush: 🙂

Rush: I am pleased that the volume is higher than was the case on our last serial!

Rush: I don’t need to strain to hear.

Matt1: True!

angel & fox: So this performance is a penultimate? From just before Channolly was buffled off to Shuffalo?

Rush: Sounded like a Ford Tri-motor plane?

angel & fox: “Edgar Allan Poe”. Like there’s some Edgar Jefferson Poe, or Edgar Raekwon Poe.

Rush: Angel: 🙂

Rush: The cousin is still alive…

angel & fox: I’m WINCING. Something about those BLADES a little TOO penetrating.

Louise: It sounds rude when he says “Gerald”

Rush: Did he say “Tubby” Simmons?

angel & fox: “Some-where, my Love…”

angel & fox: A TWELVE-STEP program!

angel & fox: Or to swap one’s records for 8-TRACKS?

angel & fox: I think he DID say “Tubby”.

Rush: That’s a blast from the past, Angel!

Rush: Yes, that’s what ist sounded like.

Rush: (it)

angel & fox: Rush, i ALWAYS leave the back door open. BELLBOTTOMS will be back in, ANY DAY.

Rush: Anything’s possible, Angel!

Rush: (Or…should I say…some ONE?)

Nothere: Oh I saw the podcast. Might check out the Vampire of Dusseldorf later. In the dark. When the moon rises:)


Rush: HM!

Louise: I spent some time looking at the character lists on the website, Rush

Rush: Yes, louise?

Len Freeman: So do we get a sponsor here? Or just to “close”?

Rush: Remember…anyone…human or animal…good or bad!

Nothere: Character lists? You mean cast list?

Matt1: Ovaltine

Rush: I think that someone even came as the “White Fox Fir” one time!

Louise: It was fun being reminded of all the weird characters that show up.

Rush: 🙂

Matt1: I was Oscar one year

angel & fox: Anybody else listening via OTR Downloads? They OFTEN get stuck, & they did again here. Often can’t get past whatever glitch trips them up. Anybody else?

Nothere: I tried being Satan one year , but I couldn’t remember his name. So I just came as black cat.

Rush: Chan’s final comments.

angel & fox: In many circles, Ovaltine is for squares.

Rush: Easier to build a temple than to cover a lie.

Rush: THE END…


Rush: (Applause…)

Rush: 9 minutes tio go to…”The Chinese Ring.”

Mike n Rachel in DC:

Nothere: But once built let the temple lye. Hopefully on a firn foundation.

angel & fox: And be SURE to test-drive the 1937 Hupmobile! Hup is hip!

Nothere: Ring a ding with the Chinese rRing.

angel & fox: Looks like a giant gumball machine.

Rush: Yes, GS…

angel & fox: Just got interrupted by RotoRooter.

Nothere: Well at least God didn’t put the quotes around fun/

Rush: Drain plugged, Angel?

angel & fox: Charm VERY offensive, Notty!

Nothere: Try pouring in some Clorox.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Some might call him King Kong, perhaps?

Godwinshelley3: Just filled with endless errands and seemingly constant eating

Rush: I hope that you can have a little bit of rest, GS.

angel & fox: Not MY drain—YouTube is trying to do their month’s advertising in one night, on me.

Rush: AH!

Rush: So it seems that there are ads on the Youtube copy…sorry!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Is that the infamous Philip An?

Nothere: Still no ads here. They either don’t like me or are too afraid to stand before my teely and withering gaze.

angel & fox: “Cable” her brother. STRING HIM UP, you mean!’

Rush: Yes, Mike.

Rush: And…Capt. kelso.

Rush: the two “Captain Ks.”

Godwinshelley3: Checking out assisted living places tomorrow when my sister comes down

Mike n Rachel in DC: Lock her up…Lock her cup… * blushes*

Nothere: Quick you two. Look suspicious while the cops are around.

Rush: And now accuse each other!

Mike n Rachel in DC: Lick her cusop? I don’t think i know her that well, NT. 😉

Godwinshelley3: Ok folks – I’ll leave you all till next week!

Godwinshelley3 has left this room

Mike n Rachel in DC: Take Care GS

PaulM: goodnight GS

angel & fox: GS, thanks for dropping in!

Rush: Our best to your family.

Nothere: Fortunatly I always have the typo excuse. I might need to use it. If I were ever there.:)

angel & fox: Oh, THAT check.

Rush: NT…”typos” is my second middle name!

angel & fox: They owe A LOT OF PEOPLE a LOT OF MONEY for A LOT OF AIRPORTS.

Rush: “Chinatown” theme music…

Nothere: You got to love San Fransico cabbies. Handcuffed to something? No problem they’ll pick you up.

Louise: nice braclet!

angel & fox: We about 18:00?

Nothere: 1815

Rush: Listen to the faceless voice of the apartment manager soon.

Rush: I think we hear him soon.

angel & fox: In San Francisco it’s not unlikely one’ll be handcuffed to someBODY. Or BODIES…which brings us back to Chan.

Rush: See if you recognize it!

Rush: Did you hear it?

Rush: Who was it?

angel & fox: STAIRS TO AERIE (arrow)

Rush: HINT: He plays another role in our film.

Nothere: Can’t tell you Rush. Can tell you this is only the third weriedst thing to happen on that roof this month.

Rush: 🙂

Rush: A busy roof.

Nothere: From the film? Captain K?

Rush: Not him….

Nothere: The detective?

Rush: Not him…

Rush: When you listen again, compare the voice to that of…

Rush: Lee Tung Foo….

Rush: The Butler in this movie.

Nothere: How many women are there hidden in this apartment, and did a sultan live here?

angel & fox: I’ll use that line (“gun does not belong with innocent face” at my next mugging.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Is this the first Winters Chan? It seems like he underplays Chan…letting the public get used to the change…maybe?

Rush: Our old friend who appears in several Chan movies as well as the butler to James lee Wong…”Mr. Wong.”

angel & fox: Those sultans could swing.

angel & fox: Everybody was in debasement. The war had just ended.

Rush: Mike, yes this is the first of the Winters Chan movies.

Rush: And, you could be right about not focusing too much on Chan….

angel & fox: Selective muteness, not to get too current-eventty.

Rush: Although, I would expect that they would have been relying more on Birmingham and Tommy.

Mike n Rachel in DC: Still feeling their way here…but good stuff

angel & fox: They were ALL blew cars. The war had just ended.

angel & fox: Good night, sweet prints.

Rush: This lady is Chabing.

Nothere: O.k. I know who I want on my charedes team. You guys can have Tommy and Bir… well maybe not the master of partal talk.

PaulM: having to deal with a dizzy dame

Rush: Chabing:

Rush: The Chinese Ring: Lilly Mae Wong
The Shanghai Chest: Receptionist

angel & fox: The HIP SING Tong!

Rush: yes!

Rush: And, Victor Sen Yung playd HOP SING on “Bonanza.”

Nothere: Don’t give me that guff mr. “Expert” I know better than to trust your mustache.

Rush: NT…wise words!

PaulM: back then a million dollars was a lot of money

Louise: Still a lot of money!!!

Rush: It seems that years ago people often referred to Los Angeles as “Los ANGLE-es.”

Nothere: And I hate to say it. But speaking of untrustworthy. Is it just me or does Charlie’s nose look crooked in this scene?

Rush: Even warner Oland did that.

PaulM: a million back then would be about 12 million today

Rush: AH! The nose of Roland Winters actually was taken into consideration!

Rush: It seems that they tried to get as many full frontal shots of him as possible due to its size.

Nothere: By the picking of my nose something wicked this way blows.


Rush: BB spots the corpse.

Nothere: And there it is. Oh Mike

Nothere: Or Matt actually.


Rush: And, Matt, if I misssed any above…a late TYSM…

Rush: And for the latest….TYSM, Matt…

Rush: She will now…

Rush: But not in the manner expected.

angel & fox: Was called away for a few. I miss many murders?

Rush: Just missed one.

angel & fox: I’m at 32:30. OK?

Matt1: We’re at 2

Rush: Yes.

Matt1: For now

Rush: 🙂

Rush: “Discovery” music.

Nothere: Footprints. It must be Mouseman. And I’ll give oone hundred non dollars to who ever can guess where I took that comment from.

angel & fox: I see Chan w/handicapped detective & usual silent cop, in LR with cozy fireplace & adjoining Queen Anne alcove for those cozy coffees with that special someone.

angel & fox: Scuse me, been talking to too many Real Estate agents.

angel & fox: Double cross; framing; sounds like a whole lotta woodworking goin’ on.

Nothere: You mean Mrs. Chan. Don’t make her send her 12 other kids to remind you of her presecne.

angel & fox: Intimate apparel?

Rush: The best I could come up with, NT, is “Robert Thompson.”

Rush: Furniture designer!

angel & fox: Oof! Gettin’ a little bluesy here, huh?

Nothere: If that was your footprints mouseman guss Rush. Nope. The answer is Duck Tracy.

angel & fox: Kelso Aviation: Ashton Kutcher, Crash Department.

angel & fox: See if i can get Winchell on this wireless.

Rush: NT, it seems we hear no further mention of either Mrs. Chan or Tommy…the Number Three Son, Tommy.

angel & fox: TYSM

Rush: This Tommy (who was Jimmy) is still called “Number Two Son.”

Nothere: If you can;’t Angel I’ll send a telegrapgh.

angel & fox: The ranking of the sons seems to me as arcane as the arcades of the Bourbon kings after a night spent surveying the Bourbon.


angel & fox: Rush: Got a screenshot of Princess’s scribble for those joining us late?

angel & fox: The Exchange Specie Bank. You never change your Specie!

angel & fox: She’s smuggling pizza for the president of Italy, that Mozzarella fella.

Rush: “Oh…a wise guy, eh…”

angel & fox: SLAM!

Nothere: Fight called on account of 40′ movie standards.

Louise: Double slide show

Rush: Angel, that’s a bank where you deposit a dog and withdraw a cat.

angel & fox: That Exchange Specie Bank looks like it’s going places. Like Receivership.

angel & fox: Rush!

Rush: (bowing…)

Nothere: Just so long as you don’t get mice in change.

angel & fox: BIRMINGHAM know too much?!

Mike n Rachel in DC: meow

angel & fox: “An old hanger in Burbank…” “You’re speaking of my WIFE, sir!”

Rush: So, as mentioned above, “Tommy” who was Jimmy, is still “Number Two son.”

Louise: I just got the exchange species joke…

Nothere: I know lets try uing answrs without questions, and se if that gets us anywhere.

angel & fox: Louise, any time you want to exchange species just let me know.

Nothere: using answers even:)

angel & fox: I ASSUME all detectives carried Fine-Toothed Combs as a matter of regulation.

Nothere: Right under the shoulder holster is where I keep mine.

angel & fox: Somebody oughta give those dogs a stake. For their Golden years.

Rush: A couple of “exchanged species.”

Rush: “How loud it thunder – how little it rain.”

angel & fox: Mao Tse-Tung again!!

Rush: Lee Tung Foo.

Nothere: Hello apartment manager.

Rush: Yes!

Rush: “Chan xienxang.”

Nothere: Thruummmmm. Acceptable thunder sound effect?

Rush: “Mr. Chan.”

angel & fox: I’d like to rent the third floor at that place you work at when you’re not around this place.

angel & fox: I tried to draw money. Was just released last year.

Rush: 🙂

angel & fox: Someone must have EXCHANGED SPECIES!

Rush: Yep!

Nothere: I tried to draw money. Too bad I can’t draw.

Rush: The “exchanged species” could eventually rival our “white fox fur.”

Nothere: Sorry Rush but White Fox Fur will top them all.

angel & fox: But you sure can swing, Notty. The spot on the sofa nearest the host will always be yours.

angel & fox: Who’s PEGGY?

Rush: I remember seeing those advertised, Angel!

Len Freeman: Regrets that I’ll be missing Halloween with you all next week…. out of town. But that means that someone else can come as Miss Nodbury.

Len Freeman: Thanks Angel

Rush: We will miss you, Len…even incognito…

Rush: “Not very funny…”

angel & fox: More Bourbon!

Rush: …and soda…

Rush: We see this ship’s hold in “Docks of New Orleans.”

Rush: “Echoey” sound coming up soon…

angel & fox: How do you hold a ship, anyway? Where ARE those guys, they were just here—“In the Na-vy”…

Rush: Gues I was mistaken.

angel & fox: There’s that comb again.

angel & fox: And we’ll do the Hokey Pokey and we’ll shake it all about.

Rush: 🙂

angel & fox: Chain of FOOLS. Chairman Aretha said THAT.

Rush: Off to turn in her story!

Rush: Yes, Angel, she did!

angel & fox: That DAMN Specie Bank!

Rush: 🙂

angel & fox: “I didn’t steal it—i STOLE it!”

Rush: Reconstruction by Chan…

Rush: “No bet…sure thing.”

Rush: Matt?

Matt1: Can’t do it

Matt1: Too sad

danventure: I don’t favor Roland’s portrayal

Rush: Yes…and the dogs, too….
