PROJECT AUDION: The Life of Riley
PROJECT AUDION #15: The Life of Riley
Project Audion came into existence about a year ago, formed as a result of the COVID pandemic, with creator Larry Groebe seeking a way to bring actors together and provide entertainment for folks stuck at home. In this fifteenth edition of the series, it's PA's recreation of the classic radio (later TV) situation comedy "The Life of Riley" and the charming 1950 episode "The Rileys' First Date” -- originally aired for Thanksgiving, but re-created for Valentine's Day, 2021. Audion’s edition comes complete with recreated laugh track.
Directed by Tom Wilkens, and starring a truly transcontinental cast:
Bob Beaumont, California
Duane Noch, Oregon
Patte Rosebank, Toronto
Jack Ward, Nova Scotia
John Mauldin, Tennessee
Fern & Barry Katz, Florida
Ken Raney, Texas
Tom Wilkens, Illinois
Trevor Rines, Canada
The laugh track was developed by Dick Huitema in Florida, and the production was under the supervision of Larry Groebe in Texas

OLD-TIME RADIO ESSENTIALS Ep. 2 - Jack Benny Program
Episode 2 -- "Jack Tries to Get Rose Bowl Tickets", The Lucky Strike Program starring Jack Benny
Welcome to Old-Time Radio Essentials, a new podcast wherein a specific episode from a selected OTR series is presented, and then discussed by three co-hosts: Pete Lutz, Jane St. John and Paul Arbisi; to determine whether or not it 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 second installment (and Paul's choice), this episode of what was popularly called "The Jack Benny Program", originally broadcast 01-04-1948. 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!

The Great Canadian Podcast!
I listen to this podcast at work (I have a lot of idle hours) and time flies when I listen. It is well done with better than average audio sound effects. Good plot writing with many actors. They have Canadian references the odd time.
Just finished listening to THE WITCH HUNTER CHRINICLES (all 9 episodes) and I must admit it was one of most interesting audio series I have ever listened to. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
I really enjoy the great selection of audio dramas they have to offer. The quality of the productions are excellent! Looking forward to upcoming shows.
