II GREELEY (Cote.) TRIBUNE Sit., April 21,1»73 He's creating boom in radio nostalgia ^^ · ^^ · ^H^H^^^^^^^^^H£9E(^l^r^^2^fc3ij'-":'''--"i^^ifci:t---' ··?:'*: By JAY SHARBUTT AP TelcvUlon Writer NEW YORK (AP) - If you hear "The Lone Ranger" on radio these days, don't be alarmed. It's still 1973. Nobody is wearing bobby sox, digging bebop jazz or driving station wagons with sides of real wood. What is happening is an aural time warp caused by Charles Michelson, a New York broadcasting veteran who for eight years has been promoting a gradual mini-boom in radio nostalgia. He owns the rights to rebroadcast a dozen half-hour radio series that were the real big- gies of the 1940s, series like "The Green Hornet," "The Shadow," "Gangbusters" and "Sherlock Holmes." He began leasing them to stations in 1965 and says the shows now can be heard on more than 400 stations in major, medium and minor markets across the U.S. Michelson got in the broadcasting business in 1938 as a distributor of the shows that now are his golden oldies. His market went flat in the 1950s with the arrival of television. He went into television as a buyer of U.S. programs for overseas TV stations. But he kept the 16-inch shellac records on which the words and deeds of Lamont Cranston, Kato and others were preserved. "We decided around Christmastime in 1964 to throw out these old records," said Michelson, 63. "But just before we did it, I got a little sentimental -it must have been the holiday season -- and I said, 'let's see if maybe we can do something with them'." Whereupon he wrote to friends he'd.known for years at 25 key radio stations in the U.S. He proposed a revival of radio's golden days. Twelve said they were interested and he was in business. But first there was a period of negotiations with the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists. The talks involved fees that would have to be paid the artists on the original radio shows. "We didn't even have a list of the original actors, anymore," he laughed. "We finally had a committee of actors from the old days come in and listen to the shows and identify the' voices." The necessary fee arrangements were made and he went to work. Oddly enough, the greatest fans at the start were college students'running campus radio stations. "They looked on this as camp material, you might say," observed Michelson, who says the radio nostalgia market now falls roughly into three categories. One is the youth" market, teenagers for whom "The Lone Ranger" is something new and exciting. The second is the memory lane market, people who grew up listening to radio. The third is the freeway mar- ket, motorists who'd rather hear "Fibber McGee and Molly" than music or news during the rush hour. One of Michelson's newer clients is WRVR-FM here, a jazz-oriented station that last October tried the old shows -Michelson leases each series in a 52-week package -- as a test for a week. "The response was tremendous," said the station's general manager, John Wicklein. "We got 3,600 letters from that one week. I've been in broadcasting for 12 years now and I've never seen anything like it." Wicklein was so impressed his station now plays six of Michelson's old shows five nights a week. Michelson says he often lectures on campus about the shows and that students invariably ask what message the shows contain. "I always tell them, there's no message," he said. "It's just pure entertainment. And I tell them a good story well done will last forever." four new TV shows walk off with most Emmy nominations By JERRY BUCK Associated Press Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) - Four new shows, "The Waltons," "Rung Fu," "M-A-S-H"' and "The Julie Andrews Hour," outdistanced nearly all the competition in the Emmy nominations for the 25th annual Television Academy Awards.
