Let's start the new year with an episode of “Information Please.” It's 1939, and we're still in the middle of the Great Depression. Do you know your “Gulliver’s Travels,” love songs, and baseball pennant-winners? Then we’ll return to Wistful Vista for another visit with “Fibber McGee and Molly.” It’s a new year for them as well, and they’re planning to host a sleigh ride.

"Little Orphan Airplane"
Synopsis: Steve travels into a war torn African country to retrieve spy film. But he discovers that he is bringing back more as the pilot who took the pictures is alive and being kept safe by two missionary nuns.
John is joined by artist and longtime fan Jerry Lange and Geek Radio Daily's Billy Flynn to discuss this fifth episode of the series. They discuss the great dialogue used in this episode, the enthusiasm in Greg Morris' performance, and how this should have been the pilot episode for the show. Plus, Jerry shares his Discovision disks and explains how this was the only home video release of either show for some time in the 80s and we play a Guest Starring themed game of This or That.
It's the return of the podcast as a Facebook Live show. Join us Friday nights at 9:30EST as we discuss an episode of THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN's first season with two fans as well as featuring commentary from our viewers. This audio will be available shortly after in the OSI Files feed.
Billy Flynn - The Wonderful Billy Flynn brings the funny each week on Geek Radio Daily! His daytime alter ego is mild-mannered (well, that part is a stretch) radio station personality at WLEE in Virginia. He actually gets paid to sit on his butt and run his mouth! His “edumacation” is from UNC-Wilmington, the Columbia School of Broadcasting, and University of Phoenix. When he is not gracing the podcasting airways with his comedic stylings, you can find Billy Flynn on Xbox Live (flynn71), rockin’ out on Guitar Hero or Rock Band, watching movies, reading comics, working out, or posting on the forums at geekradiodaily.com (ding!).
Jerry Lange - Based in Buffalo, New York. My personal and client works are created using traditional media including pencil, ink and watercolor and digital software Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign. I try to bring a dramatic visual narrative to my work through a mix of loose and tight media application and mark making technique. Website

Presenting the Transcription Feature: THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES & THE PHIL HARRIS-ALICE FAYE SHOW
We transition from Christmas to New Year’s in this episode. First Sherlock Holmes spends the season investigating the mystery of The Blue Carbuncle on “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.” Who stole the valuable gem and how did it end up in a Christmas goose? This incarnation of the Great Detective stars two of the finest actors of the 20th Century: Sir John Gielgud as Holmes and Sir Ralph Richardson as Watson. Then on “The Phil Harris-Alice Faye Show,” Phil is trying to help his pal Elliott with a New Year’s Eve party. Nothing could possibly go wrong, right?

"BAD BET ON A 459 -- SILENT"
AIRED: FEBRUARY 10, 1967
The Hornet is shot when he stumbles on two crooked cops helping themselves to the leftovers from a robbery. How can he get medical help when every cop in the city is looking for him? Jim and John find this story fascinating as it puts the Hornet and Kato immediately into the action, gives Kato extra screen time, and features a scene that the recent Green Hornet movie would use as well.
The Green Hornet: A History of Radio, Motion Pictures, Comics and Television by Martin Grams and Terry Salomonson is a reference work we're consulting as we move through the series. Pick up your copy by clicking on the link and getting it today.

"My Crime is Your Crime" & "A Bird Out of Hand"
Aired September 14, 1968
We take a look at the 1969 Filmation series that shows the influences of the 66 series on its film cells. In the first episode of the series, we discuss "My Crime is Your Crime" in which the Joker and Penguin team up to confound Batman by switching their M.O. in order to commit their crimes. Next is "A Bird Out of Hand" as the Penguin goes straight, but it's clearly a ruse.
Joining John to discuss this episode, the voice actors, and memories of watching the Filmation series on New York television is Dan Greenfield, creator and author of the 13th Dimension website.
Comment on the episode here or write email@example.com.
Dan Greenfield is the editor and co-creator of 13thDimension.com, a website devoted primarily to comics and pop culture, past and present. To him, the basic food groups are Batman, Planet of the Apes, Star Trek (the Original Series), James Bond, the Beatles and the Stones. But if he had to he'd be able to subsist on Batman alone. Channel 11 in New York was his favorite syndicated channel as a kid -- you can guess why -- followed closely by Channel 5. Channel 9 didn't really enter into it unless he was home sick and there wasn't much else on. He's married to his remarkably patient wife Wendy and his best sidekick is his son, Sam. They have two cats,Lex and Zod.
