WELCOME TO REPS
Join us in sharing the fun as we seek to preserve and protect the classic shows of the past, and to seek the best of audio entertainment today ! If you do remember the golden age of radio, you may recall a time when the room may have been illuminated only by the light of the radio dial and coming from the loudspeaker a good mystery with Sherlock Holmes or a great radio spine-tingling thriller with the likes of the ever popular radio classics Escape and Suspense! Hear great stories like The Time Machine or The Invisible Man by HG Wells, or Three Skeleton Key – where three men are trapped in a lighthouse surrounded by thousands of rats who are trying to claw their way in! If this is too intense for you, you may prefer the legendary comedians who had the most popular shows on radio and you can hear their hilarious shows today — Jack Benny, Fred Allen, Edgar Bergen, Bob Hope, Abbott and Costello and others.
Listen in and explore a whole new world of audio entertainment.
