With a planned release on World Audio Drama Day, October 30th, DO I SPECTER? I'LL SAY I DO! Is bound to go down in the history books as something that somebody wrote and a few other people performed! Who can ask for better than that, I ask you? Anyway, here's a sneak preview of three musical numbers that will be performed in this all-new comedy!
First you'll hear Jamison Protoplasm and his father Woodrow Fillmore Protoplasm singing a snippet of "I've Never Met a Ghost (That I Believed In); that's followed by a small smackerel of Lillian Stately and Jamison singing the love duet, "Phantom Love"; and finally we'll hear Rigatoni playing a sample his obligatory piano solo (with his brother Shadow coming in on the harp towards the end).
Enjoy, and be sure to return to this spot (or a similar spot, or a polka-dot, or even a paisley -- whatever you like) on October 30th to hear the whole dang thing!

Season Two of Old-Time Radio Essentials continues! In this installment, Pete, Paul and Dave welcome Essential Listener Kelly, who brings us this episode of OUR MISS BROOKS from 1950, "School on Saturday", starring Eve Arden! Will our post-show discussion cause Kelly to give us all detention? TUNE IN AND FIND OUT!
And since we're on the subject of discussion, we hope to determine whether 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 sixteenth installment (but 3rd official episode of S2), this episode of Our Miss Brooks from 1/20/50. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org . 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.

Here's part 2 of our fourth and final Sonic Summerstock Playhouse offering for 2020, a beautiful Norwegian folk tale interpreted by Louis MacNiece for BBC Radio and originally broadcast in 1959. There was no recording available for us to take inspiration from, so we did everything based on the script's dialogue and sound/music cues. In my humble opinion, this is one of the most lovely audio dramas I've ever produced, and I hope you enjoy it.

COMING SOON to this feed, especially for World Audio Drama Day 2020 -- an all-new comedy tribute to those masters of comedy mayhem, the Marx Brothers!
DO I SPECTER? I'LL SAY I DO! was written by Pete Lutz and inspired by his life-long love of Los Hermanos Marx, and includes representations of all four brothers, plus other familiar character archetypes from their films -- except this time, they're placed in a situation unlike any seen in their 13 movies.
This new feature is cast with wonderful voices (a mix of amateur and professional actors) and terrific gags, which Marxian experts have deemed worthy of the brothers themselves! It includes two brand-new songs, "I Never Met a Ghost That I Believed In", and "Phantom Love", composed and with lyrics by Pete Lutz, and orchestrated by Dr. Ross Bernhardt, who has himself composed many wonderful musical passages for the Narada Radio Company.
So here is the opening fanfare and the overture for DO I SPECTER? I'LL SAY I DO!, and we sincerely hope you like it and will come back at the end of October to hear the full program!
