"Adventures of the Federated Tec"! A series of 8 initial episodes of 7 dramatized stories featuring Dashiell Hammett's nameless detective. We call him the Federated Tec ("Tec" being short for detective), but you probably know him as something else. We've chosen Hammett's first few stories that have moved into the public domain, and have done our best to stay true to the originals -- and why not? The originals are just fine, as far as we're concerned.

So here is episode five, "Bodies Piled Up", adapted by Pete Lutz from Hammett's fifth published Op story, in 1923. We hope you enjoy it and will join us for future episodes. 

ADVENTURES OF THE FEDERATED TEC WAS CONCEIVED BY PETE LUTZ AND DEVELOPED BY PETE LUTZ AND MARK SLADE.

"Bodies Piled Up" was directed and produced by Pete Lutz. 

Our Cast consisted of the following players:

ANNOUNCER: Darren Rockhold

THE FEDERATED TEC/ELEVATOR MAN: Pete Lutz

MR. STACEY: Frank Guglielmelli  

THE MAID: Angela Young  

THE DOCTOR/LANDRY/DET. DEAN: John Bell   

DET. O'GAR: Jason D. Johnson  

DET. PHELS/GUY CUDNER: Paul Arbisi

DICK FOLEY: Mark Kalita  

ORRETT:  Jeff Moon

THE OLD MAN: Joe Stofko

THEME/INCIDENTAL MUSIC: Dr. Ross Bernhardt

Join us next time for episode six, "The Tenth Clew (part 1)"!

SAVE THE LAST WORD FOR ME #1: Chatting with the Audioblivious Gang (8/2016)

Here's a gem from the archives, the inaugural episode of a discussion podcast that I had high hopes for, but which only went for 8 episodes or so. But the discussions are fun and if you're interested in voice actors' lives, we delve pretty deep in these interviews. 

Unfortunately, "Audioblivious" doesn't exist anymore, but I have grown close to several of the people in this episode: Austin Beach and Sarah Golding, for two, who since this interview have made great strides in audio drama, so you should look 'em up and see what they're doing these days.

I'll be posting these re-runs monthly -- they originally launched on a different platform that I never use anymore, so you probably never heard of this show. Still, I hope you'll listen and enjoy.

Season Two of Old-Time Radio Essentials continues! This installment is our third for 2021, and we finally come back around to Paul, whose choice for this episode is an entry in the Duffy's Tavern series, just in time for St. Patrick's Day, with guest star Pat O'Brien. Archie and the gang are getting Duffy's Tavern decorated for the wedding anniversary of the boss and his wife, and film star O'Brien drops by to lend a hand.

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 twenty-second number (but 9th official episode of S2), this episode of Duffy's Tavern from 1945. 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 f6point3@gmail.com . 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.
