    OLD-TIME RADIO ESSENTIALS Ep. 23 - Boston Blackie

    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!

    SAVE THE LAST WORD FOR ME E2 - Lauren Shippen & Julia Morizawa

    SAVE THE LAST WORD FOR ME #1: Chatting with Lauren Shippen & Julia Morizawa of "The Bright Sessions" (9/2016)
    Again from our archives, we present the 2nd episode of a discussion podcast that I had high hopes for, but which only went for 9 episodes or so. But the discussions are fun and if you're interested in voice actors' lives, we delve pretty deep in these interviews. 
    Lauren Shippen is the creator of The Bright Sessions -- an audio drama that was a huge hit. Julia Morizawa played the title character, Dr. Bright, a psychiatrist who specialized in troubled teens. Their show is still available although no longer in production, I believe, and I recommend you check it out.
    I'll be posting these re-runs monthly -- they originally launched on a different platform that I never use anymore, so you probably never heard of this show. Still, I hope you'll listen and enjoy.

    ADVENTURES OF THE FEDERATED TEC #5 Bodies Piled Up

    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. 
    ADVENTURES OF THE FEDERATED TEC WAS CONCEIVED BY PETE LUTZ AND DEVELOPED BY PETE LUTZ AND MARK SLADE.
    "Bodies Piled Up" was directed and produced by Pete Lutz. 
    Our Cast consisted of the following players:
    ANNOUNCER: Darren Rockhold
    THE FEDERATED TEC/ELEVATOR MAN: Pete Lutz
    MR. STACEY: Frank Guglielmelli  

    THE MAID: Angela Young  

    THE DOCTOR/LANDRY/DET. DEAN: John Bell   

    DET. O'GAR: Jason D. Johnson  

    DET. PHELS/GUY CUDNER: Paul Arbisi
    DICK FOLEY: Mark Kalita  

    ORRETT:  Jeff Moon
    THE OLD MAN: Joe Stofko
    THEME/INCIDENTAL MUSIC: Dr. Ross Bernhardt
    Join us next time for episode six, "The Tenth Clew (part 1)"!

    SAVE THE LAST WORD FOR ME E1 - Audioblivious Productions

    SAVE THE LAST WORD FOR ME #1: Chatting with the Audioblivious Gang (8/2016)
    Here's a gem from the archives, the inaugural episode of a discussion podcast that I had high hopes for, but which only went for 8 episodes or so. But the discussions are fun and if you're interested in voice actors' lives, we delve pretty deep in these interviews. 
    Unfortunately, "Audioblivious" doesn't exist anymore, but I have grown close to several of the people in this episode: Austin Beach and Sarah Golding, for two, who since this interview have made great strides in audio drama, so you should look 'em up and see what they're doing these days.
    I'll be posting these re-runs monthly -- they originally launched on a different platform that I never use anymore, so you probably never heard of this show. Still, I hope you'll listen and enjoy.

    OLD-TIME RADIO ESSENTIALS Ep. 22 - Duffy's Tavern

    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!

The Community Theatre You Have Been Missing

This is a great show. There’s more variety of genre than just about anything out there, and the scripts are really well put together. The comedy is hilarious, and the dramatic aspects can be pretty impactful. The actors are having a ton of fun and give their all. Highly recommended!

Pete Lutz, Johnny Logan was a JOCKEY!!

The frankfurters are horse meat. “Pickle in the middle and the mustard on top, or the mustard in the middle and Johnny Logan on top.” Jockeys are “up” on a horse!! This is an awesome show and can’t wait to hear more!!

DavidFeldmann ,

A fun series!

I’m a big fan of radio dramas and it’s good to see new productions that carry on the tradition of audio plays into the 21st century. Very worthwhile!
