TRANSCONTINENTAL TERROR Presents:
The Cellar Mini-Series, episode 1: PHOBIAS UNLIMITED
Originally released on the Mutual Audio Network in October 2021, this is the first of five new episodes produced by 63audio for the month-long Transcontinental Terror audio series.
Phobias Unlimited, set in an alternate universe, tells the story of Hazel, a woman who has better luck with cats than with men. She discovers "Phobias Unlimited", a business providing a unique service that exploits a person's special fear -- but we don't want to give too much away! Written and produced by Rachel Pulliam by special arrangement with The Cellar's regular producer, her play was a Second-Place winner in the 2019 Cellar Script-Writing Competition.
The Cellar mini-series will re-release all 5 episodes weekly on Fridays until November 26th. Next up: "How to Shed 180 Pounds".
Greetings, fellow Wellesians, Wellsians, OTR-lovers, Mars-lovers (not Bruno), historians, and seekers! In honor of World Audio Drama Day (observed annually, every October 30th) 2018, the following friends and fellow audio drama makers gathered via Skype to create a special panel discussion (in alphabetical order):
Ed Champion of "The Gray Area" podcast
Joe Griffin and Ele Matelan of Wildclaw Theatre Chicago
Pete Lutz of 63audio/Narada Radio Company (Host)
Jeff Niles of 4077th Productions
Aimee Pavy of "12 Chimes, It's Midnight" podcast
We're discussing the historic and fateful "War of the Worlds" radio program from the Mercury Theatre on the Air, first broadcast on CBS on 10/30/38. Then we're playing the 50th anniversary tribute-remake first broadcast on NPR on 10/30/88. Then we come back and talk about that, comparing it to the original. Fun, freewheeling discussion abounds! So what are you waiting for? Start listening, eh? And enjoy!
Haunted by a tragic incident from the past, Angela reminisces about a grade school friend and a series of ghostly visitations that have plagued her since childhood.
Warning: Contains adult language and frightening situations.
Written, directed and produced by John Ballentine
Original music score by Kevin Hartnell
Episode 9 -- "Christmas Show 1950", The Bing Crosby Chesterfield Show
Welcome to Old-Time Radio Essentials, a new podcast wherein a specific episode from a selected OTR series is presented, and then discussed by three co-hosts: Pete Lutz, Jane St. John and Paul Arbisi; 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 ninth installment (and Pete's selection), this episode of The Bing Crosby Show from 1950. 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!
