Next week: Another 11th Hour bonus!

Oct 30, 2018

Greetings, fellow Wellesians, Wellsians, OTR-lovers, Mars-lovers (not Bruno), historians, and seekers! Today, in honor of World Audio Drama Day (observed annually, every October 30th) 2018, 63audio is proud to present a special panel discussion featuring the following friends and fellow audio drama makers (in alphabetical order):

Ed Champion of "The Gray Area" podcast

Joe Griffin and Ele Matelan of Wildclaw Theatre Chicago

Jeff Niles of 4077th Productions

Aimee Pavy of "12 Chimes, It's Midnight" podcast

We're discussing the historic and fateful "War of the Worlds" radio program from the Mercury Theatre on the Air, first broadcast on CBS on 10/30/38. Then we're playing the 50th anniversary tribute-remake first broadcast on NPR on 10/30/88. Then we come back and talk about that, comparing it to the original. Fun, freewheeling discussion abounds! So what are you waiting for? Start listening, eh? And enjoy!

Sep 30, 2018

Welcome back! If you've been here for the three previous weeks, you know that we're re-releasing our four 2018 "Sonic Summerstock Playhouse" festival offerings. We hope you enjoyed last week's presentation "ESCAPE: THE ADAPTIVE ULTIMATE". And now it's time to enjoy our fourth and final one, an episode of the "Arch Oboler's Plays" series, entitled "Rocket From Manhattan". Originally broadcast on September 20, 1945, I believe on NBC. 

The play and the point of view was written and cast all-male. I decided to go against type and cast every single role with a woman. I changed the genders in the dialog as well, for the most part (except when they spoke of "mankind"; I left that alone). I believe it works very well this way, and further, that Mr. Oboler would approve. 

CAST:

Announcer 1: Ele Matelan

Announcer 2: Alisha Strand-Mueller

MAJOR RUSSELL: Geri Elliff

DOCTOR CHAMBERLAIN: Lori Bryant

LIEUTENANT REYNOLDS: Victoria Fancki

Produced & directed by Pete Lutz

PRESENTING...our S4 and Series Finale!

RATED R. "The Bird and the Snake" comes from a 1959 issue of Adam Magazine, a slick "girlie-mag", so not technically a pulp story, yet Clem Hanlon's tale of a Polish-American cop in Chi-town really smacks of the pulp style. It took a long time to get us to this point, but I'm proud of this episode, and feel that we're sending Pulp-Pourri Theatre out with a real bang, and not a whimper. I hope you feel the same after hearing it.

Our theme, and transitional music, for this episode was specially composed by Katharine Seaton. I hope you listened to the theme when we posted it as a teaser earlier -- I absolutely love what she did for this episode. Find more of her music here:
