Today's release date, 1/29/18, is the 173rd anniversary of the original publication date of "The Raven". It also happens to be my 55th birthday. :-) If you want to give me the perfect gift, please listen and enjoy, and share with your friends!

----------

2024 NOTE FOR THIS 2018 PRODUCTION:

Our announcer, Lisa Ayala, states plainly in the closing announcements that the two poems included at the end of this production are presented in their entirety, with no alteration. Up till today, 5/21/24, that statement was an inadvertent lie. I discovered some time ago that I had accidentally omitted one verse from The Raven, but I didn't fix it till last year (with Tom Rory Parsons providing additional music for that missing verse) -- and then I didn't get around to adding it to this production until now. You, dear listener, probably didn't notice, and I received no angry letters from Poe fans, but it bothered me, and now Lisa's words ring true.  Thank you -- Pete Lutz

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!
