The Plot To Overthrow Christmas

If you've read much on my site, then you know I love audio drama. One of my favorite stories comes from Norman Corwin. "The Plot To Overthrow Christmas" was written in 1938. The first time I heard it was as a teenager in a small town. The 1942 version of the play was aired on WSIU, the same station where I heard Nightfall, A Canticle For Leibowitz, The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, Star Wars, The Fourth Tower Of Inverness, and many more. I did a bit of remastering to remove quite a bit of hum, hiss, clicks, pops, and......

Mountain and Leslie West

Back in the 80s, I had a chance to see Triumph, but the real excitement was to see Mountain. They were raw, powerful, and soulful. At some point in the show, Corky Laing threw a cymbal (stand and all) at Leslie West. Leslie managed to catch the stand and whip it right back into the drum kit. For the intro to "Mississippi Queen," they rolled out a cowbell that was probably 6-7 feet tall. Leslie inspired many musicians over the decades with his great riffs and tasty guitar work. On top of that, what a voice! Interesting side notes about......

Campfire Radio Theater – “Gerald”

Campfire Radio Theater - "Gerald" I am proud to announce the latest episode of Campfire Radio Theater. "Gerald" was written by Bill Gray and originally produced for Nightfall (CBC) in 1982. With kind permission from Bill, Campfire Radio Theater has produced a new adaptation of his excellent story. Admittedly, there have been many setbacks over the last couple of years, so it took much longer than ever expected to complete. Despite the obstacles, this is the second episode I have produced with John and had a wonderful time putting it all together. Warning: Contains explicit language and frightening situations. From......
