2/12/2012 Sound Affects: A Radio Playground


Feature Presentation - From the Great Northern Audio Theatre comes The Jewels of the 11th Generation. Two old treasure-hunters board a long-lost generation starship, and they find pirates, love, adorable children and plenty of squeaky toys.
Selected Shorts - The Sci-Fi Radio series is made up of some superb short stories of science fiction. This one is by Avram Davidson, The Grantha Sighting, about a small rural town and the aliens they may or may not have seen.

I always include websites where you can find the programs I play on this show. But here are a few sites where you can find audio works that I wouldn't or can't broadcast here.
The Sonic Society - Jack Ward broadcasts/podcasts modern audio drama from all over the world. Originates in Halifax, Nova Scotia. (http://sonicsociety.org/)
Radio Drama Revival - Fred Greenhalgh broadcasts from Maine, and he podcasts it, too. A showcase of stories told in sound. (http://www.radiodramarevival.com/)
Edict Zero - FIS - A novel-length story of an Earth colony run by a deeply bureaucratic security system. Explosions, lots of agents working on a mystery or a few of them. (http://edictzero.wordpress.com/)
The Mask of Inanna - A terrific juxtaposition of Old Time Radio mystery, surrounded by a modern story of religious curiosity. (http://www.themaskofinanna.com/)
