Radio Sound Effects Night 

May 31st, 2006

hosted by Frank Rosin and the Radio Enthusiasts of Puget Sound



The Radio Enthusiasts of Puget Sound (REPS) are fortunate to have the sound effect (sfx) collection of Ray Erlenborn and Stu Conway.  Ray, in his 90s, is still living in Oregon and started in radio in the mid 30s working for Ed Winn, Lum and Abner, Red Skelton, Jack Benny, and almost everyone else on radio.  Stu constructed and worked on the sfx for the CBS network in the 40s and 50s. 
Do you remember the squeaking door from Inner-Sanctum Mysteries?  The hoofbeats of the great horse, Silver?  The cash register from the Jotem-Down-Store?  These, and many more of the sfx actually used in those days, were at the meeting to bring back some of those sounds you heard sitting in a darkened living room listening to a program such as The Whistler with the only soft glow of light coming from the light of the dial on the radio
