In this specially curated collection for Halloween 2022, we will be presenting a wide selection of old-time radio (and other) horror programs. For our seventh, we are proud to present a remake of a radio play that was broadcast only once, in 1952: THE WHISTLER, "Man From the Morgue".

Appropriate to the Halloween month - but good anytime - Project Audion's latest premiere is an episode of old time radio's long-running (1942-1955) mystery anthology series, "The Whistler". Over 700 episodes were originally broadcast, but we're recreating one that doesn't survive: "Man from the Morgue," which aired January 13, 1952 and was since lost. Our coast-to-coast cast features outstanding performances all transcribed live via Zoom...

Horror Fest '22: Project Audion 35: Midworld

In this specially curated collection for Halloween 2022, we will be presenting a wide selection of old-time radio (and other) horror programs. For our sixth, we are proud to present a remake of a radio play that was broadcast only once, in 1939: MIDWORLD, "Return of the Werewolf", from the Texas State Network.

Horror stories work so well as audio drama because all the awful deeds take place in your mind's eye. That's why radio spawned such classic shows as Lights Out, Quiet Please, Inner Sanctum, and...Midworld? Project Audion brings back to life a late-night radio horror show that has been dead for 83 years: a series which was only heard on the two dozen stations of the then-new Texas State Network. A single Midworld script is all that survives from it - a tale of werewolves and ghosts set in the Canadian wilderness. This is the first time the show has been performed since 1939. Watch our voice actors from across the US perform via Zoom, or close your eyes and just listen...if you dare!

CAST:

Bob Beaumont in California

For our fifth, we are proud to present the only two known-to-exist episodes of the series "Stay Tuned for Terror", written, selected and adapted by Robert Bloch. So here we present, as a single installment, episodes 31 and 32 of that late 1940s series:

"The Boogey Man Will Get You" and "Lizzie Borden Took an Axe".

HORROR FEST '22: Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

In this specially curated collection for Halloween 2022, we will be presenting at least four radio programs originally aired on BBC radio. For our fourth, another dramatized tale by Ray Bradbury, "Something Wicked This Way Comes."

Composer ..... David Paul Jones
Sound ..... Paul Cargill
Produced/Directed by Pauline Harris

Set in 1960's Illinois this gem of modern Gothic literature is the memorable story of two boys, James Nightshade and William Halloway, and the evil that grips their small Midwestern town with the arrival of a "dark carnival" one Autumn midnight. These two innocents, both aged 13, (Will is born one minute before Halloween, and Jim one minute after) save the souls of the town (as well as their own). This is a vivid variation on the eternal theme of the fight between Good and Evil. A thrilling, chilling, richly kaleidoscopic sound world ensues; a shimmering mirror maze that reflects your older or younger self, depending on your desires, and a magic carousel that plays Chopin's Funeral March forwards - with each rotation you gain a year, and rotating backwards - you get younger.

Cast:

Will: Theo Gregory

Jim: Joseph Lindsay

Charlie: Henry Goodman

Mr Dark: Kenneth Cranham

Mr Coogar: Gerard McDermott

Lightening rod salesman: Gerard McDermott

Tierney’s Tales of Terror Writing Competition

Deadline: May 19th 2022, 11pm CST.

Requirements: Theme: The Supernatural (This CAN take place in the future provided our current, modern day isn’t mentioned; i.e., the internet, politics, etc. A good example is to look at the original Twilight Zone and take inspiration from there.)

  2. Your script must be free of visual cues.
  3. Approximately 25-30 minutes (20-30 pages) in length (OR two 15 minute plays as 1 double-feature)
  4. Horror genre
  5. Family Friendly (no cursing, no sexually explicit themes, etc. This is because the original audio play, "A Tale of Tierney" didn't have any of that stuff and I'd like to keep it that way.
