About Us

The Terry Bonadonna Show features Old Time Radio (OTR) programming from the Golden Age of radio. From 2007 to 2010, and occasionally thereafter, it aired Friday nights, 9:00 pm-midnight, on WXAV, 88.3 FM, the college radio station of Saint Xavier University in Chicago. The show features several genres: comedy starring radio greats like Jack Benny, Fred Allen, Jim and Marian Jordan (Fibber McGee and Molly), Bob and Ray, Burns and Allen; mystery programs (Suspense, The Whistler, I Love a Mystery); detective programs (The Shadow; Dragnet; Casey, Crime Photographer); westerns (The Lone Ranger, Gunsmoke, Roy Rogers); science fiction (Dimension X); quiz shows (Kay Kyser's Kollege of Musical Knowledge, You Bet Your Life); sports; drama; history; and so on. The program first aired on September 14, 2007, and that episode (minus the opening greeting, unfortunately) and most of the program's episodes are gathered here. Each show is roughly three hours in length. With the assistance of his guest bandleader (e.g., Benny Goodman, Glen Miller), host Terry Bonadonna guides listeners through a weekly tour of five or six programs he has chosen from the archives of radio's Golden Age.
