Martin Grams, Jr., and Jordan Rich

Martin Grams, Jr. is a prolific—and highly regarded—writer. We met recently at the Friends of Old-Time Radio Convention in Newark, New Jersey; we were both part of a panel discussion at the convention.

Martin’s many books about television and old-time radio (some of which are published by BearManor Media) include: “The Radio Adventures of Sam Spade” (OTR Publishing, 2007), “Gang Busters—The Crime Fighters of American Broadcasting” (OTR, 2004), “I Led 3 Lives” (BearManor, 2007), and “Information Please” (BearManor, 2003).

On Saturday night/Sunday morning, just after midnight, Martin will be appearing on “The Jordan Rich Show,” on Boston radio station WBZ-AM. He’ll be talking about his latest book, “The Twilight Zone: Unlocking the Door to a Television Classic” (OTR, 2008). The show can be heard at

Further information about Martin Grams, Jr., and his books, can be found at his web site:

And speaking of Jordan Rich:

Jordan, a terrific host (I appeared on his WBZ program several months ago), is currently raising funds for Boston’s Children’s Hospital. With a $20 contribution, one receives a 2009 “Jordan Rich Show” calendar.
