    Great work! Thanks! I grew up with radio, in the 1940’s, laying on the living room carpet, eyes closed, as my mind created its own images of The Lone Ranger, Captain Midnight, The Shadow, Tom Mix, I Love a Mystery, Inner Sanctum, The Mysterious Traveler, et al…
    Kids today don’t have a CLUE, as to what they’ve missed, in what Orson Welles called “the theater of the mind”…Just as the older teenagers are so very romantically-deprived, with the disappearance of the drive-in theaters…I’ve lived in the best years this nation has ever known.
    Hope to one day hear “War of the Worlds”, if you can swing it.

  • Thanks so much, Jim! These were really our tribute to the old time era – we love it as much as anyone though the focus is really on producing original work. It’s not really “War of the Worlds,” but you could give a listen to the last act of our Halloween show for our take on a tribute 🙂

    Hope you continue to enjoy our shows!

  • hello i like your recordings last year…
    please have more recordings for suspense and more etc…

  • mabu

    My group of students read the script and then we listened to your presentation. It was great! It really gave my students an opportunity to hear how powerful the use of voices can be! Thank you so much!
