Originally released 5/29/20. Transcribed live from California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennesee, and Texas... Project Audion presents a recreation of the 1937 Columbia Workshop broadcast of "R.U.R: Rossum's Universal Robots."

Pete Lutz of Narada Radio Company, director of this radio drama, says this about his choice of show: "I love the historical sense of the story. Here's Carel Kapek, in 1920 or 21, foreseeing AI, prophesying humans' dependence on technology. Of course, robots themselves, thank the gods, haven't been perfected to the same extent. But there are so many wonderful elements in the story: all the men on the island are in love with Helena, and this unrequited love felt by Dr. Gall leads to their downfall. The robots evolve in different ways, though: some become murderous, yet two show more humane tendencies: love, compassion, sacrifice. I first heard the BBC's radio adaptation of this, which was about two hours long. Then I found the script we use here and felt that the main points of the story were covered sufficiently in a half-hour. It's exciting, dramatic, and sentimental. Columbia Workshop had geniuses working for them."

Project Audion is a collection of voice actors from across North America who are recreating classic shows from Radio's Golden Age via videoconference .

[Orig. launched 9/6/20] Season Two of Old-Time Radio Essentials continues! In this installment, Pete, Paul and Dave welcome Essential Listener Kelly, who brings us this episode of OUR MISS BROOKS from 1950, "School on Saturday", starring Eve Arden! Will our post-show discussion cause Kelly to give us all detention? TUNE IN AND FIND OUT! 

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 sixteenth installment (but 3rd official episode of S2), this episode of Our Miss Brooks from 1/20/50. 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.

In honor of Saint Paddy's day (March 17th), we've sent our intrepid reporter, Philboyd Studge, to New York City, home of the world's largest St. Patrick's Day parade, to interview someone who claims to be a leprechaun. You'll be "Wearin' of the Grin" by the time it's over, don't ye know. Enjoy!

"Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar" - that was both the title and the closing phrase of each episode of this well-loved crime drama, which aired on CBS for over 800 episodes and 13 years. The setup was always a big insurance settlement that will have to be shelled out... unless "America's fabulous freelance insurance investigator" can crack the case open - which he invariable does.

Project Audion's transcribed-live episode recreates the fourth-ever show from March 11, 1949, before the more-familiar cliches of the series took over.

Charles Russell played Johnny Dollar 73 years ago, but OUR transcontinental cast includes:

JOHNNY DOLLAR: Kim Titus, TX

ANNOUNCER: Geoffrey Mark, CA

LOUISA PEPPER: Jan Welch, NC

MYRTLE PEPPER: Rhiannon McAfee, CA

SHANTY BRENNAN: Greg McAfee, CA

CARTER LACEY: Tom Konkle, CA

It was directed by Joe Mendell from England, and Production was by Larry Groebe in Dallas Texas

(Orig. rel. 8/2/20) Season Two of Old-Time Radio Essentials continues! In this installment, Pete, Paul and Dave bring you this episode of THE SHADOW from 1946, "Gang Doctor", starring Bret Morrison! Will our post-show discussion have the ability to cloud men's minds? TUNE IN AND FIND OUT!

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 fifteenth installment (but 2nd official episode of S2), this episode of The Shadow from 1946. 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!

JACK BENNY / MR. KITZEL: Duane Noch, NJ

BING CROSBY / W.C. FIELDS: Michael Dees, CA

DENNIS DAY / FRANK NELSON: Bob Beamont, CA

PHIL HARRIS: Norman Cline, KY
