Re: Medium is the Message

I was listening to this great show in my car last night ( still didn't make a lot of sense - the ending in particular) but what I was reminded of was how a show from one medium does not usually transfer well to another, I think this is perfect example - it simply would not have had the impact as a ...

Re: Harry Morgan

On April 10th Harry Morgan had his 96th Birthday. YAY!!! 8) Better known for playing Officer Bill Gannon on the 60's DRAGNET TVseries, he did have a couple of appearances on the radio series in 1949. Yeah, he had four or five in a row (or pretty close to it)!!! In a one or two he played a store own...

This one is for those skimming the board looking for answers...

Archive.org is a great website for OTR fans... you can download just about every extant episode from most OTR shows there!!!

Well... THAT'S an easy one!!! I've already stated elsewhere that the 30 minute episodes leave me cold, so the obvious choice is the star of the 5-parters, Bob Bailey!!!

Re: that's from "exploring tomorrow"

the episode you heard is from "exploring tomorrow", a pretty good series with rambling, quasi-drunken introductions by john campbell. gwangi featured it on his radio review here . Yeah, what was with that, anyway??? It was like the sci-fi version of "The Continental", what with the soft-spoken Camp...

You could also try a few other sci-fi series... 2000 Plus actually beat Dimension X to the airwaves by approximately a month as the first serious "adult" sci-fi show!!! 2000 Plus, however, consists of original shows, whereas Dimension X mainly adapted pre-existing stories by classic sci-fi authors, ...

Re: RE: Favorite D-X or X-1

I don't recall a Dim-X-1 episode about a golfing robot. It sounds like another series. Alain, it does sound like you're being too critical. Some 2000+ are quite good, and Exploring Tomorrow has a couple worth listening to. But the theme and Campbell -- sheesh! (sorry John, you just didn't cut it!) ...

Yeah, Ray Bradbury was a real mover & shaker amongst the sci-fi community... what with screenplays like IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE, his good relationship with E.C. Comics and all the radio plays... I think he had more stories on X Minus One than any other writer!!!

Well, I hear it all the time on "When Radio Was"... some big holkywood star like Jimmy Stewart or Burt Lancaster recreating their role in a movie for a radio broadcast (Director's Playhouse?) so I see no reason why Gloria Golden and "Four-Fisted" Frank Fuddleman wouldn't show up there, from time to ...

The original "Show about Nothing"!!!

I was musing on this recently and came to the conclusion that Vic & Sade had Sienfeld beat by over 50 years!!! There was never a serious moment on V & S, like Sienfeld... it was all about the ha-ha!!! It was all about the minutia that happens to the main characters throughout their daily lives (Geor...

Add to that the fact that they only had like 12 minutes to get a show off in... they didn't have time to sit around and listen to some half-wit radio show... probably broadcasting the radio adventures of Gloria Golden and "Four-Fisted" Frank Fuddleman!!!

Re: RE: 5-parters vs. 30 min.

Love the 5-parters. problem with the show after the 5-part era is that the show was about 20-25 minutes long. It would have help to have a sponsor for the Bailey's weekly run. There is a big difference from 28 minutes of story down to 22 minutes of story. And a real BIG difference in story at 74 mi...

A guy offers safaris to the age of the Dinosaurs so big game hunters can shoot them.
Very good story.
Is it just me, or does this sound vaguely like Ray Bradbury's "A Sound of Thunder"???
