Here are five episodes of the radio series THEATER OF ROMANCE (aka ROMANCE) that Jerry Goldsmith scored in 1954-6.

(Try bending your mind around the fact that he was only 25 or so when he wrote this stuff.)

If my source comes through, one more episode from this series should follow in about a week.

Thanks for posting these David. I've heard and enjoyed a lot of Goldsmith's CBS Radio Workshop shows but not these Romance Shows. It's cool to hear the announcer mention Goldsmith in the credits. Heard his name in all of them accept "The Kruetzen List". Perhaps it was an edit? I believe he also scored a few CBS Suspense Radio shows as well. Would be great to hear them too.

Anyway, what great historical Goldsmith Treasures. Thanks again!

Thanks Lorien. I'm now going to check out those Suspense Shows.

Wow. If someone finds that "Symphonies for Youth" show, Jerry would have been 17 years old on that one.

Thanks again for all the info. Would love to hear those Hall of Fame shows. I did hear a few FRONTIER GENTLEMAN shows scored by Goldsmith. He worked on those with Wilbur Hatch who went on to conduct the Desi Arnaz Orchestra for I LOVE LUCY, staying with CBS Television. Very cool western music on FRONTIER GENTLEMAN and his Main Theme for that show is very very nice. A great Lonely Trumpet sound.

Well done again on your latest discoveries.

Was there a series for CBS titled Escape? If so are there episode scores by JG?

Amazing material. Thank you for posting this. It's interesting to hear not only Goldsmith's roots, but in the case of "1489 Words," to hear "William Conrad" of Cannon and Jake & the Fatman fame is priceless.

A lot of people had written off radio by this time, as television was becoming the new cause celebre'. This was a treat to listen to and I'll have to keep my eyes out for more of this. I'm a little too young for this era, but I find myself yearning for the simplicity of my youth.

These serve as a reminder that imagination can go a long way without CGI effects and Dolby Surround sound.

Thanks.

His radiography (http://radiogoldindex.com/cgi-local/p3.cgi?ArtistName=Goldsmith,+Jerry&ArtistNumber=18801)
does not credit him with any episodes, but that might mean no complete credits for the series has been logged.

The radiography I posted above says he was 16 (since his birthday is in February, I think.

My usual sources (vendor and free) don't have any of JG's HALL OF FAME episodes available, although all are known to be in some recorded form, if only in private collections. (http://otrr.org/FILES/Logs_txt/The%20Hallmark%20Hall%20of%20Fame.txt)

Thanks for posting the additional shows on Mediafire. I wasn't wild about the ROMANCE series generally, but thought I'd save these JG episodes. Now I can add a few more to the folder.

Did JG score any of the old GUNSMOKE "CBS Radio" shows? Some of these shows were included as a "bonus" on the GUNSMOKE: THE DIRECTORS COLLECTION DVD set.:-)

Lorien's list above is as complete as I've heard of. Perhaps you're thinking of the TV series, because I think he did do some of those.

Yes, JG did do some very early GUNSMOKE TV episodes (1950's 30 minute shows)...I was just curious about the radio shows...thanks...:-)
