(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.")

"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

(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.

(Orig. rel. 3/14/21) Season Two of Old-Time Radio Essentials continues! This installment is our third for 2021, and we finally come back around to Paul, whose choice for this episode is an entry in the Duffy's Tavern series, just in time for St. Patrick's Day, with guest star Pat O'Brien. Archie and the gang are getting Duffy's Tavern decorated for the wedding anniversary of the boss and his wife, and film star O'Brien drops by to lend a hand.

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-second number (but 9th official episode of S2), this episode of Duffy's Tavern from 1945. 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! We also say farewell to our co-host, Dave Feldmann, who is launching his own OTR podcast.

Their choice for this episode is an entry in the Columbia Workshop series, called "A Radio Primer", written by Norman Corwin. (Dave couldn't make it for this episode but he'll be back next time!)

PROJECT AUDION #30, Season 3 Premiere!

Out of more than 900 episodes that the classic radio thriller Suspense produced between 1942 and 1962, there are 13 shows that are missing, and OTR researchers have tried for years to track them down. One of the missing 13 is "The Eavesdropper," which aired just once - January 3, 1956. No recording has ever been found. Thanks to Suspense historian Dr. Joe Webb, Project Audion is able to recreate "The Eavesdropper" so you can hear it for the first time in more than 65 years - a story of a high-rise murder plot that was discovered and which leads to a double execution.

Our transcribed-live recreation features a cast that reaches from Hollywood, California to Toronto, Canada. Watch and listen as we hope to keep you in...Suspense!

CAST:

Duane Noch, New Jersey

Patte Rosebank, Canada

Tim Burns, Kansas

Trevor Rines, Canada

Bob Beamont, California

Directed by Ms. Rosebank and produced by Larry Groebe

Directed and recorded by Pete Lutz, and edited/mixed by MJ Cogburn of Darker Projects. Music by Ross Bernhardt.

(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.

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.

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:

And since we're on the subject of discussion, we hope to determine whether this entry meets the following criteria:

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

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!
