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!

To comment on how we might improve OTR-E, or give suggestions for future discussions, please write to us at f6point3@gmail.com . Put the word "Essentials" in the subject line.

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

AUNT MILLIE: Denise Cline, KY

NEPHEW: Ken Raney, TX

ANNOUNCER: Paul Arbisi, IL and

JAKE MARLEY: Joe Mendell, UK

GHOST: Richard Huitema, FL

Sound is by Ken Raney, with direction, production, & music by Larry Groebe
