I can hear you cry, "WHAT!? Two new NADIs in ONE MONTH? Pete, what's the matter with you?" Well, sometimes that's what happens, and now, with the launch of NADI #5, we're only one month behind instead of two.
With this episode we announce our membership in the new "Fatecrafters" Network of shows. Listen for the special trailer between 1 and 2 for a new show by our friends and co-members at Audioblivious Productions!
THIS PRODUCTION IS RATED PG for mild adult language. Parental Guidance is suggested.
1. "MR. HANDY-DANDY, THE D.I.Y. GUY", with Bralynn Bell as the host and Chuck Wilson as Rock Virgo, the world-famous Mr. H-D, it's a spoof on Home Improvement shows.
2. "JAKE DIMES, RANGE DETECTIVE". In chapter 5, "Hog-Tied", our hero unwittingly finds himself face-to-face with the leader of the payroll robbing ring, and the lovely Chris Greenslate receives a puzzling note from Jake.

RATED PG-13. A CO-PRODUCTION OF 63audio and LEAP AUDIO. This is the story of two gay couples and their fight to challenge the constitutionality of California's Proposition 8, which went into effect in the first decade of the 21st century. Prop. 8 essentially made it illegal for same-sex couples to marry. Fashioned from actual dialog, TV political ads and court transcripts, "8" is a moving, gripping drama that you must share with your family and friends.

This has been a co-production of 63audio and Leap Audio.
Here's the trailer for our next release, an audio drama called "8" by Dustin Lance Black, author of the "When We Rise" TV miniseries currently being aired. "8" is about California's Proposition 8, which questioned the legality and necessity of same-sex marriage, and which was voted in by Californians in the first decade of the 21st century. Two same-sex couples went to court to challenge that law, and this play details these people's court battles and what was going on in their private lives as well.
"8" is a co-production of LEAP Audio Productions and 63audio, and was co-directed by Mark Bruzee of LEAP and Pete Lutz (of you-know-what). The production is performed by members of the LEAP players and the Narada Radio Company. Mark adapted the play for audio.
THIS PRODUCTION WILL BE LAUNCHED SIMULTANEOUSLY BY LEAP AND 63audio on MONDAY, 3/20/17. THERE WILL BE NO SUNDAY EPISODE LAUNCH HERE, DUE TO THIS LAUNCH.
A special re-release from the vaults, this one is a show I created for Mark Slade's "The Hangman's Dozen" anthology series. It's called "Four Minus One", and was originally released as a co-production of 63audio and 4077th/All Better Audio, on 2/26/16.
Set during the days when "Old Time Radio" was just "Radio", Four Minus One is about actress Marjorie Vining, longtime star of the hit radio series, "The Librarian of Coreyville". When she senses her co-star is scheming to steal her role, Marjorie seeks assistance from a local gypsy fortuneteller, who takes her down a long road of curses and revenge.
