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:

Production is underway for our Pulp-Pourri Theatre series (and S4) finale, "The Bird and the Snake", a hard-hitting cop drama set in Chicago, in the late 50s. I wanted this episode to have special music to reflect the changing times and the excitement of the era. Noir movies of that time had jazzy, hard-hitting, gritty, moving themes with avant-garde, abstract, animated titles. I wanted music like that, so I turned to Katharine Seaton, a very talented composer from England, and asked her what she could do for me. Well, she came back with this, and I was blown away. I think you will be, too, and like me, you'll be able to see the abstract animation of a film's opening credits running through your head as this fantastic piece plays out.

"The Bird and the Snake" will feature a special introduction from Rhiannon McAfee of the "Rex Rivetter, Private Eye" audio drama podcast series, plus excellent performances from the Narada Radio Company troupe. We plan to release it before the end of February, so watch for that and keep your fingers crossed!

Welcome to our 2nd of two teasers for Episode 9 of Season 4 of Pulp-Pourri Theatre's fourth and final season! The Raven is perhaps the most famous poem by Edgar Allan Poe, and one of the most famous in poetry history. It's the tale of a lost soul desperately trying to forget his lost love, while at the same time trying to deal with a recalcitrant raven who just so happens to drop by. Coincidence? We hardly think so. But we do hope you enjoy it!

THE RAVEN by Edgar Allan Poe was first published in January 1845. This reading is by Pete Lutz, and music was specially composed and performed by Tom Rory Parsons.

Episode 9, Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado", will be launched no later than January 29th, 2018, the 173rd anniversary of The Raven's original publishing date.

Here's one of two teasers for Episode 9 of Pulp-Pourri Theatre's fourth and final season: Edgar Allan Poe's classic poem "Annabel Lee", recited by Narada Radio Company member Jackie Ayers, with music specially composed for this piece by Tom Rory Parsons. Enjoy!

Episode 9 is Poe's short story, "The Cask of Amontillado", featuring the voices of Jason D. Johnson as the narrator/protagonist, Montresor, and Pete Lutz as the fat, foolish, unfortunate Fortunato.

Our next teaser will be Poe's dark classic, "The Raven", also with music by Mr. Tom. Don't miss it!
