Hello everyone! It's been quite a while since I've last come to you with an update. Well, it's getting to that time of year again where the temperatures are falling and so are the leaves. Now, we're on the downhill side of October, and on Old Time Radio USA, begins our seasonal holiday marathons! Let me breakdown what you can look forward to in the weeks and months ahead as we look into Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year! So, let's jump into it.
