(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.

(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. Thanks for joining us, and we hope you enjoy it! WARNINGThis OTR episode contains derogatory comments about Latin-Americans. Listener discretion is advised.

(Orig. rel. date 5/23/21) Season Two of Old-Time Radio Essentials continues! It's our new co-host's choice this episode -- and New Dave, for our 5th episode of 2021, and has picked a very exciting episode of The Adventures of Philip Marlowe for us to 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-fourth number (but 11th official episode of S2), this episode of Philip Marlowe 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!

Recording of a live performance of the Narada Radio Company, at RealmsCon 2015 in Corpus Christi, TX. Originally released 10/30/15, on archive dot org, in honor of World Audio Drama Day.

Our production has all the earmarks of a live performance: people coughing, folks walking in and out of the room, etc. Try not to let that distract you too much. 

"Inner Sanctum Mysteries: Death of a Doll" was originally broadcast on NBC radio in October 1948. 

CAST OF CHARACTERS:

ANNOUNCER: Lisa Espinoza
HOST/BEAU COUSINS: Jason D. Johnson
WILL HARPER: Pete Lutz
MR. JACKSON/KARA NANA/INSP. SHEA: Dana Gonsalves
THE DOLL/THE CLERK: Kristy Glick
McGRUNDY: George Hatfield
 
ORGANIST: Ross Bernhardt

(orig. rel. 4/25/21) Season Two of Old-Time Radio Essentials continues! We introduce our new co-host this episode -- and we hope you enjoy the New Dave! This installment is our fourth for 2021, and Paul gets two choices in a row for some reason, so he selected an episode of Boston Blackie entitled "Murder at the Rodeo" for us to 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-third number (but 10th official episode of S2), this episode of Boston Blackie 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!

Premiering on Project Audion, a brand-new episode of "The Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy Show" that sounds just as if an unknown script from 1940 had suddenly turned up. That's just how spot-on is the writing in this tribute penned for Project Audion by former Bob Hope comedy writer Robert L Mills.

Charlie and Edgar come up against W. C. Fields as well as a snarky agent from the IRS who sounds suspiciously like the unmistakable voice of Frank Nelson. It's our tribute to that most improbable of vintage radio's hit shows - a radio comedy starring a ventriloquist. Close your eyes and listen, then rewind to watch how our coast-to-coast cast (pictured here) handled the transcribed-live performance. Delightful summertime entertainment that speaks for itself!

Participants in this show included:

Robert L. Mills in California

Duane Noch in New Jersey

Pete Lutz in Texas

Bob Beaumont in California

Paul Arbisi in Illinois and

JoAnne Kurman in California

Robert L. Mills penned the script, while Larry Groebe produced and handled the audio from Texas.
