(orig. launch 12/25/21) Season Three of Old-Time Radio Essentials is here! It's our Christmas Special, and Dave's pick -- and he's bringing us a thrilling episode of Rocky Fortune for us to enjoy and discuss.

And since we're on the subject of discussion, we hope to determine whether this entry 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 twenty-seventh number (but 2nd official episode of S3), this episode of Rocky Fortune - The Plot to Murder Santa Claus, from 1953. 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.

Your feedback means a lot to us! A review at iTunes or at your usual podcatcher would be appreciated.

Next Time: An episode of Gangbusters!

Fred Allen is a name unfamiliar to most people today, but for two decades his radio show set the standard for the best of American humor. His comedy and satirical influence can be seen in everything from Looney Tunes to Saturday Night Live. Robert L. Mills, comedy writer for Bob Hope, has crafted a "new" Fred Allen show for Project Audion which successfully recalls the time Allen had the #1 program on the airwaves (in the late 1940s).

We'll visit "Allen's Alley" with Senator Claghorn, Mrs. Nussbaum, and others; take on "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" in a movie parody, and welcome guest stars Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy, thanks to a coast-to-coast cast of sterling vocal talent which includes:

FRED ALLEN: John Bell, AL

MOODY / CASSIDY / BANDITO: Pete Lutz, TX

PORTLAND / MRS. NUSSBAUM: Julie Hoverson, WA

KENNY DELMAR: Ken Jeffries, CA

CLAGHORN / GRIZZY: Harry Middlebrooks, CA

EDGAR BERGEN: Robert L. Mills., CA

CHARLIE MCCARTHY: Scott McKinley, NJ

Today is a good day to listen to Bad Day at Black Rock, Project Audion's latest radio drama recreation. We're going far afield with this 1959 show, because by this time in America, television had killed off the great radio movie adaptation series like "Lux Radio Theatre." In other countries like Australia, radio drama still thrived through shows like Caltex Theatre. They adapted Bad Day at Black Rock from the gritty, Oscar-nominated 1955 drama with Spencer Tracy, where one man takes on a dying town that harbors a dirty secret. Now Project Audion recreates it with a transcribed-live coast-to-coast cast which includes:

MACREEDY: Les Marsden (CA)

SMITH/JENKINSON: Pete Lutz (TX)

COLEY/ANNOUNCER: Tom Konkle (CA)

DOC: Dana Gonsalves (TX)

SHERIFF/CONDUCTOR 2: John Bell (AL)

PETE: Austin Hanna (TX)

HASTINGS: Gino Vianelli (CA)

LIZ: Jesirae Kesler (TX)

VOICE/SAM/CONDUCTOR 1: Larry Groebe (TX)

Pete Lutz directed, & Larry Groebe produced

(Orig. rel. 6/4/21) Project Audion premieres our latest recreation - a lost episode of On Stage. No recordings exist of this OTR drama from July 1954, so Patte Rosebank in Canada and Tim Burns in Kansas are stepping into the roles that Cathy and Elliott Lewis played on the original broadcast, assisted by Trevor Rines in Canada with music and FX from Larry Groebe in Texas. On Stage was an anthology series created by (and for) the Lewises, who had appeared on so many radio shows they became known as "Mr. and Mrs. Radio." In this episode, "Interlude", two lost and lonely adults who find each other one in a bar one night, and find the paths of their lives changed. This Audion recreation was directed by Patte Rosebank and produced by Larry Groebe.

Jun 29, 2022

(Orig. rel. 3/5/21) Project Audion's latest production recreates a vintage episode of "Destination X" called "Requiem", an adaptation of a short story by science fiction master Robert Heinlein. In our 21st-century world, when it's been over 50 years since we first set foot on the moon, it's fascinating to revisit a time when we had yet to even send a man into space. What dreams might drive a man to reach the moon and the stars? Dimension X gave us answers in this episode from September 1951.

Our North American cast includes:

Bob Beaumont in California

Marty Bufalini in Michigan

Larry Groebe in Texas

Lesley Marberry in Tennessee

John Mauldin in Tennessee

Brad Oxnam in Tennessee

Jacob Palka in Illinois

Rachel Pulliam in Missouri

Sound Effects were by Ken Rainey in Texas, and John Mauldin directed.

(Orig. rel. 9/4/20) Project Audion's 10th episode recreates one the best episodes from the award-winning 1950s science fiction series "X Minus One" using a cross-country Zoom conference and a cast of both Audion veterans and first-timers:

Announcer: Trevor Rines in Canada

Narrator: Kim Titus in Texas

Guy Burkhardt: Lothar Tuppan in California

Mary Burkhardt: Rachel Pulliam in Missouri

Henry Swanson: Duane Noch in New Jersey

Dorchin: John Bell in Alabama

April Horn: M J Cogburn in Texas

With sound effects by Key Raney in Texas, and production and direction by Larry Groebe

In "The Tunnel Under the World," based on a story by Frederick Pohl, a man was up on June 15th with a strange feeling of deja vu. His suspicions turn out to be justified when he eventually discovers his whole world is not what it seems to be...

(Orig. rel. 6/27/21) Season Two of Old-Time Radio Essentials concludes! It's our finale, and Pete's pick -- and he's bringing us an exciting episode of Tales of the Texas Rangers for us to enjoy and discuss.

And since we're on the subject of discussion, we hope to determine whether this entry 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 twenty-fifth number (but 12th official episode of S2), this episode of Tales of the Texas Rangers from 1950. We'll introduce the show, play it in its entirety, then discuss it at length.
