In a Dystopian society where poets, artists, and other members of the creative community have been declared obsolete, a young poet faces a trial for his life.

Sole Twin Audios presents another Suspense recreation! This one is set in a Dystopian society and was chosen because of its Twilight Zone vibe! "2462" was produced and directed by Rachel Pulliam with sound design and effects by J. S. Farrington.

Incidental music was by Ross Bernhardt, with the Suspense theme composed by Bernard Herrmann and re-imagined and performed by David Krause.

Featured in the cast were:

Geri Elliff as Announcer

Robin Robbins as 108303715

Jake McAskill as the Young Guard

Jonathan Lee Taylor as the Lieutenant

Dean T. Moody as the Old Guard

The Saint - "the Robin Hood of modern crime" and star of scores of books, TV shows, movies, and also a well-remembered radio series - is Project Audion's latest radio recreation. Vincent Price was urbanely brilliant as Simon Templar on the radio, but he only came to the show in 1947. The first series aired in 1945 with Edgar Barrier, and no recordings exist.

Project Audion's vintage script of the episode "The Million Dollar Day" was only the 4th-ever episode. This Saint has sidekicks! We were also lucky to speak with Saint expert Ian Dickerson in England for a pre-show interview, and doubly lucky to locate a still-working SONOVOX (and experienced operator Ken Justiss) to recreate the once-famous sound effect of the "Bromo-Seltzer Train."

Our transcontinental transcription recording session was challenged by electrical storms and some camera glitches, but we pulled it off!

Our cast includes:

THE SAINT: Les Marsden, CA

HOPPY/JANITOR: Pete Lutz, TX

PATRICIA: Rhiannon McAfee, CA

MONTEIRO: Dana Gonsalves, TX

KUZELA: Frank Guglielmelli, PA

FERNACK/ANNOUNCER: John Bell, AL

Mr. Lutz directed this episode, and Larry Groebe produced, managed sound, and growled.

For this transcribed-live national recreation, Pete Lutz in Corpus Christi Texas directs and appears in the show, along with Dana Gonsalves, Jessica Mathews, and Marty Bufalini from WWJ radio in Detroit. Larry Groebe created the organ links and handled production elements.
 
Project Audion continues in 2022, watch for new shows as well as earlier releases that hadn't made it to Moonlight Audio before now. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Episode 12 -- "Tanglefoot", Quiet, Please (Season 1 Finale)

Welcome to Old-Time Radio Essentials, a podcast wherein a specific episode from a selected OTR series is presented, and then discussed by three co-hosts: Pete Lutz, Paul Arbisi, and newcomer David Feldmann; to determine whether or not it meets the following criteria:

1. Is it truly representative of that series? (Can anyone point to it and say, "Yes, that is what [NAME OF SERIES] was all about.")

2. Is it an episode worthy of inclusion in any and every OTR aficionado's private collection?

So with this in mind, we three bring you, as our twelfth installment (and David's first selection), this episode of Quiet, Please from 1949. We'll introduce the show, play it in its entirety, then discuss it at length. Thanks for joining us, and we hope you enjoy it! 

Please show your support of the podcast by doing any of the following!

THE NARADA RADIO COMPANY presents our third live performance of the great Lux Radio Theatre broadcast of IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE, performed on the stage of Port Aransas Community Theatre, Port Aransas Texas, between December 4th and 12th, 2021.

Ten voice actors created the town of Bedford Falls, bringing to listeners all of the familiar characters from the film. Live music and a mix of live and pre-recorded sound effects completed the illusion. Audiences were mesmerized by the imagery, and laughed their heads off during the commercials (all mention of Lux was deleted and new spots for a fictitious product were substituted, to great comedic effect), AND they went home satisfied. 

We hope you enjoy this recording, and we wish you a very happy holiday season, plus a prosperous 2022!

For the holidays, Project Audion, for its 25th production, turns to Charles Dickens' classic "A Christmas Carol."

There were many adaptations of this tale during the Golden Age of Radio, but one of the cleverest and most charming was when it was transplanted to the Old West for a Christmas episode of the Jimmy Stewart western "The Six Shooter" which aired from 1953 to 1954. The story of Eben and Jake - and how and why Stewart's character Britt Ponsett tells it - makes for a delightful half hour.

Originally broadcast on NBC, 12/20/1953. Our cast for this recreation is our most wide-ranging in both location and age:

BRITT PONSETT: Ric Spiegel, TX

JOHNNY CARVILLE: Austin Mosher, NY

EBEN SCROOGE: Stanley Dyrector, CA

BOB CRATCHITT: Chris Marcellus, UT

BELLE / MRS CRATCHITT: Rachel Pulliam, MO
