ADVENTURES OF THE FEDERATED TEC #5 Bodies Piled Up
Adventures of the Federated Tec"! A series of 8 initial episodes of 7 dramatized stories featuring Dashiell Hammett's nameless detective. We call him the Federated Tec, but you probably know him as something else. We've chosen Hammett's first few stories that have moved into the public domain, and have done our best to stay true to the originals -- and why not? The originals are just fine, as far as we're concerned.
So here is episode five, "Bodies Piled Up", adapted by Pete Lutz from Hammett's fifth published Op story, in 1923. We hope you enjoy it and will join us for future episodes. NARADA RADIO COMPANY

OLD-TIME RADIO ESSENTIALS #3 - Lights Out!
Episode 3 -- "The Little People", Lights Out
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 third installment (and Jane's choice), this episode of "Lights Out" (aka "Lights Out Everybody"), from a rebroadcast in 1943 or '44. 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!
