WHEN RADIO WAS host Greg Bell says, "I was born just after the Golden Age of radio, so my discovery of 'The Shadow', 'Gunsmoke', 'Fibber McGee and Molly', 'Dragnet', Jack Benny, 'Suspense' and so many others came gradually, and usually late at night."
"Like all kids my age, I was spoiled by TV, but the power of the storytelling drew me in and I marveled at radio’s ability to fully paint a picture with only audio as a brush."
Since 2002, Greg has served as program director and host of XM Radio’s very popular old-time radio channel.
"Over the past few years, I have heard from many folks well under Jack Benny's age (39), who tell me how surprised and thrilled they are to discover how cool these shows are at 50, 60 even 70 years after they originally aired," says Greg.
"As the host of WHEN RADIO WAS, I hope I can continue to bring these wonderful nuggets from the past to a whole new audience, while also entertaining the long-time classic radio fans as well."
