"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 seven, part 2 of "The Tenth Clew", adapted by Pete Lutz from Hammett's sixth published Op story, in 1924. 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.

"The Tenth Clew" was directed by Pete Lutz, mixed and mastered by Daniel French of Fishbonius Sound Design. 

Our Cast consisted of the following players:

ANNOUNCER: Darren Rockhold

THE FEDERATED TEC: Pete Lutz

SGT. O'GAR: Jason D. Johnson

CHARLES GANTVOORT: John Bell

MESSENGER BOY: Jessica Rainville

FAKE DEXTER: Jordan Bruster

DEXTER MADDEN: Jeff Moon

FERRYMAN: Frank Guglielmelli

CREDA DEXTER: Rhiannon McAfee

OLD MAN: Joe Stofko

VOICE OF HAMMETT: Paul Arbisi

THEME/INCIDENTAL MUSIC: Dr. Ross Bernhardt

Join us next time for episode eight, our Season 1 finale, "Night Shots"!

May 23, 2021

Season Two of Old-Time Radio Essentials continues! It's our new co-host's choice this episode -- and New Dave, for our 5th episode of 2021, and has picked a very exciting episode of The Adventures of Philip Marlowe for us to discuss.

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-fourth number (but 11th official episode of S2), this episode of Philip Marlowe from 1950. 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!

SAVE THE LAST WORD FOR ME #1: Chatting with voice actor and friend Alex Moore (10/2016)

Again from our archives, we present the 3rd episode of a discussion podcast that I had high hopes for, but which only went for 9 episodes or so. But the discussions are fun and if you're interested in voice actors' lives, we delve pretty deep in these interviews. 

Alex Moore is a terrifically talented voice actor from Texas, whom I first met when we acted together in a production of Love's Labour's Lost at Del Mar College in Corpus Christi. Since then she has moved to the Dallas area, and has lent her voice to anime productions and commercials, and has appeared on the professional theatrical stage as well. I'm also proud to say that she's appeared in a handful of my audio dramas.

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! We introduce our new co-host this episode -- and we hope you enjoy the New Dave! This installment is our fourth for 2021, and Paul gets two choices in a row for some reason, so he selected an episode of Boston Blackie entitled "Murder at the Rodeo" for us to discuss.

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-third number (but 10th official episode of S2), this episode of Boston Blackie from 1946. 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!

SAVE THE LAST WORD FOR ME #1: Chatting with Lauren Shippen & Julia Morizawa of "The Bright Sessions" (9/2016)

Again from our archives, we present the 2nd episode of a discussion podcast that I had high hopes for, but which only went for 9 episodes or so. But the discussions are fun and if you're interested in voice actors' lives, we delve pretty deep in these interviews. 

Lauren Shippen is the creator of The Bright Sessions -- an audio drama that was a huge hit. Julia Morizawa played the title character, Dr. Bright, a psychiatrist who specialized in troubled teens. Their show is still available although no longer in production, I believe, and I recommend you check it out.

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.

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!

Their choice for this episode is an entry in the Columbia Workshop series, called "A Radio Primer", written by Norman Corwin. (Dave couldn't make it for this episode but he'll be back next time!)

With Season One complete, "The Cellar" goes on a short hiatus as we prepare episodes for Season Two, plus a number of special productions for the 2021 Sonic Summerstock Playhouse. We thank you for listening and we hope you enjoyed the first dozen episodes of..."The Cellar"!

Feb 4, 2021

Fans of the Narada Radio Company -- all two of you -- will likely have noticed that Mr. John Bell has taken part in many of our productions over the course of the last two years or so. John is a man of many voices, and a fantastic sense of humor, and his own comedy series, "Bell's in the Batfry", has been going strong for more more than a dozen years. 

As a tribute to the man, I wrote and performed all of the characters in a spoof of his show, which I called "Crade's in the Cattle", much in the same way John voices 99.9% of the characters in his show (he does bring in occasional guest voices).

You won't get the joke if you don't listen to BITB, so please go to the Mutual Audio Network and subscribe to the Friday Follies so you can hear a multitude of the back catalog; and to the Sunday Showcase, so you can hear new ones every other week. THEN come back and listen to this one.

"The Dead Man", adapted from a story by Ray Bradbury

"Do you dare to go down into...THE CELLAR?"

Welcome to the tenth number in our continuing horror/suspense anthology series! Our stories are either original, or inspired by, or adapted from pulp fiction and classic literature, but they're guaranteed all-new productions, and no repeats from other series.  

We know it's been about 10 months since our last "Cellar" episode, and we are glad to be back! Production on the series was halted due to many other projects that Pete got involved in, but he hopes to keep his eye on the ball, and his hand on the tiller, and his nose to the grindstone...and his butt in the producer's chair!

And with that being said...we proudly present "The Dead Man", adapted by our director Pete Lutz, from a pulp-fiction story by Ray Bradbury -- a young man in a small town is ridiculed by his fellow denizens because he claims he's dead. But is he? ENJOY, my friends!
