Sunday nights on WAMU. Wife and I made it "must see" radio, and it was a very special and intimate experience. They don't make 'em like him very often.

RIP, Ed. And thanks for the memories.

I loved listening to this program as I was leaving DC, after taking care of my aging mother for the weekends, on Sunday nights. I always drove out of the reception area before the cowboy caught the bad guy... I was often tempted to just pull over and listen to the rest! I missed listening to the program after mom died and I wasn't driving home on Sunday nights any more. I will miss the announcer.

I grew up listening to and,laughing heartily at, Ed and Willard Scott as "The Joy Boys".I think they were on WRC?

I never heard his program, being nowhere near D.C., but I loved old radio programs. In my college days and beyond I used to listen to the CBS Radio Mystery Theater. I saved my long drives to and from home and work and school for that hour so I could listen, and often sat in the driveway to listen to the end. Friends knew what was up if I didn't come into the house right away after they heard my truck in the drive.

If my love of that was a fraction of his for all of those old programs, it sounds like he had a marvelous career. And it seems somehow the fitting end that in his hospital room he and his family listened to his last program and then he died shortly after.

If you do Usenet (newsgroups) there are several groups devoted to oldtime radio. There are not as many posts as there were 5-7 years ago, but still quite a few. (For all I know, Ed Walker might have been one of the posters, using an alias.)

Some usenet servers retain posts for 4-5 years, so it's possible to find a lot of interesting stuff.
