(Orig. rel. date 1/24/21) Season Two of Old-Time Radio Essentials continues! This installment is our first for 2021, and Pete's choice, so he's bringing us an episode of "Fibber McGee & Molly": PIONEER DAYS. Will our discussion cause Dave to apply Johnson's Glo-Coat to his cat? 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 twentieth number (but 7th official episode of S2), this episode of "Fibber McGee & Molly" 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! Happy New Year!

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

(Orig. rel. 11/22/20) Season Two of Old-Time Radio Essentials continues! In this installment, our 2nd annual Thanksgiving Special, Pete, Paul and Dave present another of Paul's selections, this time an episode of Life With Luigi: THANKSGIVING CELEBRATION. Will our discussion lead to overeating? Will Dave go into a cranberry coma? 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 18th installment (but 5th official episode of S2), this episode of Life With Luigi 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!

(Orig. launch date 5/7/21) Project Audion's 2nd season begins like our first season, with an episode of the classic radio drama Suspense. "Pearls are a Nuisance", aired on CBS 4/20/50, is a satirical detective drama based on a story by Raymond Chandler, which starred Ray Milland. Walter Gage is trying to track down some stolen pearls, and must call upon a gentleman of dubious morals to help him.

Our transcribed-live drama includes voice actors from California all the way to England:

Joe Mendell (UK) – Announcer

Pete Lutz (TX) - Harlow Wilcox, Henry

Doug Fain (TX) - Walter

Rhiannon McAfee (CA) - Ellen

Angela Young (FL) - Dora, Teller

Greg McAfee (CA) - Mr. Gallemore, Voice

Dana Gonsalves (TX) - Manager, Scandesi

Mr. Lutz directed, while Larry Groebe handled production and sound.

Apr 10, 2022

This Project Audion vintage radio recreation is an hour-long dramatization of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four...which was originally produced in August 1949, just months after the book, to great acclaim, was released. NBC University Theater adapted this scathing vision of a possible future where "Freedom is Slavery" and "Big Brother is watching you." Big Brother is part of our cultural currency now, but in 1949, "1984" was a new and daring novel, and this early audio adaptation feels fresh - and still terrifying.

WINSTON SMITH: Dana Gonsalves, TX

ANNOUNCER: John Bell, AL

O'BRIEN: Les Marsden, CA

JULIA: Jesirae Kesler, TX

MR. PARSONS & OTHERS: Tom Konkle, CA

MR. SYME: Jason Johnson, TX

MRS. PARSONS: Rachel Pulliam, MO

ASSORTED VOICES: Jessica Matthews, TX

(Orig. launch date 7/24/20) Project Audion presents our recreation of an episode of Screen Guild Theatre, AKA Hollywood Soundstage. "The Ox-Bow Incident" was a best-selling book in 1940, a blockbuster Western movie in 1943, and adapted for the Screen Guild Theatre radio show no less than three times. Our version is from 1952. It's a story of vengeance and violence -- a gritty look at a group of men who turned into a mob.

"The Ox-Bow Incident" was directed by Pete Lutz / Corpus Christi, Texas and produced by Larry Groebe / Grapevine, Texas, and used a coast-to-coast cast of 14 people situated from Nova Scotia to San Francisco:

Paul Arbisi / Peoria, Illinois

John Bell / Alabaster, Alabama

Denise Cline / Nicholasville, Kentucky

Norman Cline / Nicholasville, Kentucky

Dana Gonsalves / Corpus Christi, Texas

John Mauldin / Nashville, Tennessee

Chris Messersmith / Dallas Texas

(Orig. launch date 10-25-20) Season Two of Old-Time Radio Essentials continues! In this installment, Pete, Paul and Dave present another of Pete's selections, this time an episode of "Escape": THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER, adapted from Poe's classic Gothic horror tale. Will our discussion lead to property values in the 19th century? 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 seventeenth installment (but 4th official episode of S2), this episode of "Escape" from 1947. 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!

It's episode two of a new, limited anthology series from 63audio and the Narada Radio Company! Adventure Trail brings back to the Narada microphone The Old-Timer, a character first heard way back in the first season of Pulp-Pourri Theatre. He's back after all this time to spin a few yarns and tell some tall tales about adventures he's had over his long life, and this second outing is a prime example. Set in the 1940s or thereabouts, in "Demon an' Pithypuss" we hear about a pair of ranch hands (Rowdy Ransom and Mac McCorkadale) who are such close friends, that one can't itch without the other one scratchin', to hear Ol' Duff Moser, the ramrod, tell it. Mac and Rowdy are sure-fire winners in the upcoming rodeo's steer-tying competition, but their other event, a ballad-singing contest, causes their friendship (and rodeo partnership) to fall apart when they find they can't agree on the "right" words to an old song. With all the other hands' wages tied up in bets, things look pretty dire, and the other cowboys try all kinds of ways to bring these two back together.

CAST:

Gene Giggy as THE OLD-TIMER

Les Marsden as DUFF MOSER

John Bell as EDITOR STRAWN

Norman Cline as ROWDY RANSOM

David Ian as MAC McCORKADALE

Eugene Lutz as PINCH-POCKET PATTERSON

Mark Kalita as LINK CASSIDY

Pete Lutz as BIG-NOSE GEORGE and NICK SHORTRIDGE 

Jordan Bruster as JOE CLARK

Dana Gonsalves as AB BUNKER

With additional voices by Glenn Higbee, Glenn Hascall, and members of the cast.

Guitar for "Trail to Mexico" performed by Riley Lutz

ADVENTURE TRAIL theme and interstitial music composed and performed by Ed Champion

Melody for "Trail to Mexico" composed by Pete Lutz
