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”
Rush: Oh, yes, not bad busy.
Rush: We are getting more and more serious about a possible relocation to Iowa.
Matt1: BIG move!
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.
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.
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.
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: 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: 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: 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….

Mike n Rachel in DC: Charlie Chan and O’Brien arrive at the airfield?
angel & fox: DOOLEY PONDERING. Excellent attorney, Pondering, excellent.

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: 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.
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.
angel & fox: Rush, i ALWAYS leave the back door open. BELLBOTTOMS will be back in, ANY DAY.
Rush: Anything’s possible, Angel!

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

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

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: 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.

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?
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: 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: The Chinese Ring: Lilly Mae Wong
The Shanghai Chest: Receptionist
angel & fox: The HIP SING Tong!
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
Matt1: For now
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!
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: “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.
angel & fox: Someone must have EXCHANGED SPECIES!
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.

Nothere: It was only twice the reporter was the killer right?
Louise: Ouch. That coat hurts
angel & fox: I had a sofa AND a leisure suit AND a kitchen that had her pattern.
Rush: Yes, louise!
angel & fox: Notty—as long as we’re not including Professional Reputation in the body count, yeah.
Louise: angel: you could blend in with your leisure suit laying on that couch
Louise: and disappear!
angel & fox: Louise, ! That’s how i think my last love lost me.
Nothere: Well folks this is where I leave you. If I don’t see you next week. Happy Halloween. And remember if you feel the need to ask whose there…leave the house.

Nothere has left this room
Rush: BB is right!
angel & fox: KONG?
angel & fox: That coat’ll wake the neighbors.
Rush: On our old black and white TVs, that coat would be producing false colors!
Matt1: Looks like Olands PJ’s
Rush: Nice hat on Barbara.
Rush: Peggy, I mean!
Rush: I guess I had Barbara Jean Wong on my mind!
angel & fox: Color is a social construct, Rush! My grandparents got a plastic disc to put over the screen for black & white.
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.
angel & fox: Len, we’ll miss you. Colonel Mustard & Miss Scarlet won’t really replace you.
Rush: Usually next to the ads for X-ray Specs!
Len Freeman: Thanks Angel
Rush: We will miss you, Len…even incognito…
Rush: “Not very funny…”
angel & fox: DETECTIVE IN AQUATIC RECORD-SETTER!
Len Freeman: Nite all.
Rush: Good night, Len!
Rush: take care.
Rush: be safe.
Rush: I wonder what the budget was for chewing gum in this film?
angel & fox: He went there looking for an ATM. Was told to wait.
Len Freeman has left this room
angel & fox: More Bourbon!
Rush: …and soda…
angel & fox: Was JUST…about…to add…soda. Oh yes. Soda. Hmmm.
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.
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!
angel & fox: “I didn’t steal it—i STOLE it!”
Rush: Reconstruction by Chan…
Rush: “No bet…sure thing.”
angel & fox: Hope they give her enough for the story to buy a New Look jacket. With poodles on it, & 8-inch wide buttons.
Matt1: Can’t do it
Matt1: Too sad
danventure: I don’t favor Roland’s portrayal
Rush: Yes…and the dogs, too….
angel & fox: Oof. Didn’t remember that. Hope actual boy made it away. Would be about 80 at present. Rush? (Haha!)
Rush: At least!
angel & fox: Charlie gonna get protested on bigtime by morning.
Rush: Please forgive Mr. Chan…
Louise: Sorry can’t type much tonight. I have a numb hand…
angel & fox: LET’S catch brass ring together next week!!!
Rush: “Man who ride on merr-go-round all the time, sooner or later must catch brass ring.”
angel & fox: Louise, your presence is sweetness sufficient unto the night.
