We report optical spectroscopy and redshift determination for 22 radio galaxies, extracted from the Ekers et al. (1989) compilation. Selected sources, which have both Fanaroff & Riley type I and II radio morphology and are classified as elliptical or S0, have a typical early–type spectrum with strong absorption lines as generally observed in non-radio elliptical galaxies. Only in two cases, 0344-345 and 1521-300, moderately strong emission lines are observed.
