    OLD-TIME RADIO ESSENTIALS Ep. 32 - Lux Radio Theatre

    OLD-TIME RADIO ESSENTIALS Ep. 32 - Lux Radio Theatre

    Old-time Radio Essentials continues its 3rd season with an episode of the Lux Radio Theatre – their adaptation of the Western film "Red River", starring John Wayne! This one's Pete's pick, and there's action a-plenty in the selection, followed by fast-paced discussion of its merits by the three co-hosts. Will Pete and Paul have a Walter Brennan voice-off, reluctantly judged by Dave? Tune in and find out!!
    And since we're on the subject of finding things out, while you listen you'll learn if we feel 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 thirty-second number (but 7th official episode of S3), this episode of Lux Radio Theatre, from 3/3/49. 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! 
    Please show your support of the podcast by doing any of the following!
    To comment on how we might improve OTR-E, or give suggestions for future discussions, please write to us at f6point3@gmail.com . Put the word "Essentials" in the subject line.

    Your feedback means a lot to us! A review at iTunes or at your usual podcatcher would be appreciated.
    Next Time: Dave's pick, and all he'll tell us is that it's in the Sci-Fi genre!

    SAVE THE LAST WORD FOR ME Ep. 7: Rhiannon & Greg McAfee

    SAVE THE LAST WORD FOR ME Ep. 7: Rhiannon & Greg McAfee

    SAVE THE LAST WORD FOR ME #7: Chatting with voice actors and audio drama creators Rhiannon and Greg McAfee (5/2017)
    Again from our archives, we present the 7th 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. 
    Rhiannon & Greg McAfee are a terrifically talented couple from California, whose work I first discovered in 2016 or so, when I first heard the outstanding audio drama series "Rex Rivetter, Private Eye". Greg wrote the scripts, Rhiannon directed and played the detective's Girl Friday. Since our interview, both of them have appeared in a number of my audio dramas, and I was lucky enough to make it into one episode of RRPE before production ceased. Enjoy this most excellent discussion with two excellent folks!

    SAVE THE LAST WORD FOR ME Ep. 6 - Jack Ward

    SAVE THE LAST WORD FOR ME #6: Chatting with podcaster, audio dramatist, collaborator, voice actor and friend Jack Ward (03/2017)
    Again from our archives, we present the 6th 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. 
    Jack Ward is the creator and co-host of "The Sonic Society", a long-running weekly podcast out of Halifax, Nova Scotia that showcases new audio dramas. He featured my first two episodes of "Pulp-Pourri Theatre" back in 2013, no questions asked, even though the productions themselves were, to be honest, questionable. But we have become good friends, and have collaborated on many projects since then, and have joined with a handful of other like-minded individuals to create the Mutual Audio Network. Jack is the head-man at the tiller though, make no mistake. Anyway, this interview was fun and I hope you enjoy it.

    SAVE THE LAST WORD FOR ME - 4 and 5: Jon Grilz

    SAVE THE LAST WORD FOR ME #4 and 5: Chatting with voice actor and audio dramatist Jon Grilz (01/2017)
    Again from our archives, we present the 4th and 5th episodes 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. 
    Jon Grilz is the creator, producer and star of the "Small Town Horror" audio drama series, and our discussion spans two episodes because in the first one we talked for more than an hour, but later discovered that the recorder had punked out on us about 20 min. into our discussion. So we got together a second time and chatted for about another hour, and that one was successfully saved for the ages. Nowadays Jon is involved with the "Creepypods" series. Enjoy our freewheeling chat from five years ago!
    I lied a year ago when I indicated that I'll be posting these re-runs monthly, sorry about that. But nobody wrote to complain, so I guess it wasn't important anyway. Cheers!

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!
