The Cladrite Radio Gorillas Galore Giveaway
We’re giving away not one, not two, but three “Sons of Kong” boxed DVD sets to lucky Cladrite Radio followers. Each set comes with 10 movies on three discs, and a goofier gaggle of gorilla pictures you’d be hard-pressed to find.
Just check out these titles:
- The Ape (1940), starring Boris Karloff
- Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla (1952), starring, well, you can guess
- The Gorilla (1939), starring the Ritz Brothers and Bela Lugosi)
- The Ape Man (1943), starring—wait for it—Bela Lugosi
- Bride of the Gorilla (1951), starring Barbara Payton and Raymond Burr (sorry, no Bela in this one, but will Lon Chaney Jr. do?)
- The Savage Girl (1932), starring Rochelle Hudson
- The White Gorilla (1945), starring Ray Corrigan
- Law of the Jungle (1942), starring Arline Judge
- White Pongo (1945), starring Richard Fraser
- Nabonga (1944), starring Buster Crabbe and Julie London (yes, that Julie London)
We’re confident you’ll agree that that’s one impressive assortment of simian silliness. And this bounty of cinematic missteps comes in pop-up packaging that you’ll be proud to display in your home!

Just follow us on Facebook and Twitter (if you haven’t followed us on either or both of those platforms, now’s your chance to rectify that—just follow the links on the upper left), watch for our posts/tweets about the giveaway and share/retweet them with the hashtag #crgorillagiveaway.

News for Cladrite Radio Listeners
Here’s some news for those listeners who listen to us via TuneIn: Cladrite Radio is still going strong, but Tunein, a very popular smartphone app, has just announced that it won’t be streaming Radionomy (our streaming provider) stations on its service. It’s a legal snarl we have no role in, as Sony Records is suing Radionomy, and Tunein wants to protect itself (that’s our layman’s interpretation of the situation, in any case).
We’re sorry for the inconvenience, but there are other apps you can use to access our stream, including Radionomy’s own app, Orange Radio, Simple Radio, Nobex, Reciva, radio.net and Streema, all of which are free downloads.
And you can still access Radionomy stations via TuneIn, by manually entering our custom URL into the Custom URL section, but honestly, we think you’ll find it easier to use one of the other apps.
To access our stream within TuneIn, use the following address: http://listen.radionomy.com/cladriteradio

You think that money is everything
And yet it’s anybody’s spring.
Go make a fortune, become a king
And still it’s anybody’s spring.
And if you flash a bank roll
Do you suppose the brook would care?
Or that a rose would say
“There goes a millionaire!”
It’s more than diamonds around a ring
Because it’s anybody’s spring.
You may be born with the silver spoon
And yet it’s anybody’s moon
You couldn’t buy a ticket
To hear the first robin sing
It’s free because
It’s anybody’s spring.
Music by James Van Heusen, lyrics by Johnny Burke, 1944
