IDS 447 IDS 2015 Summer Rep 3 Sherlock Holmes “The Problem of Thor Bridge”

Posted in Episodes, Plays on the IntraWebs on July 27th, 2015

This is the third installment of IDS’s Summer Rep.  This month’s program comes from the old time radio series, Sherlock Holmes.  The episode is entitled The Problem of Thor Bridge.  Enjoy!!

From Generic Radio Workshop:

Sherlock Holmes is the most oft-portrayed fictional character in movies. (Just for the record, the most oft-portrayed real historical figure is Napoleon Bonaparte.)

NBC started broadcasting Sherlock Holmes in 1930. Many actors essayed the Holmes/Watson characters. But none have become more identified with the role than Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. They created the fictional Arthur Conan Doyle duo on the radio, in the movies, and briefly on television in the early 1950’s.

In the early radio series the story was introduced by Jospeh Bell (his real name) who was supposed to be visiting the study of Sherlock Holmes. He would engage the detective in a discussion of one of his cases. When Bell bowed out of the series, an announcer named Knox Manning took over and they changed the scenario so Manning was visiting with Dr. Watson. Exactly why this switch of venue was effected is not clear.

The first sponsor of the show was G. Washington Coffee. Later it was picked up by a cold remedy named Bromo-Quinine.

And what follows is an impassioned tale of surprising romances, unlikely heroes, and, of course, the incomparable gods in all of their majestic, decadent glory.

IDS 444 Tee Quillin directing Hot Mikado at Palm Canyon Theatre

From Palm Canyon Theatre:

Fusing Eastern and Western culture with a 1940’s big band twist, Hot Mikado swings into Palm Springs with a side-splitting story. The tale features Ko-Ko, the reluctant Lord High Executioner, Nanki-Poo, a disguised prince fleeing his arranged marriage, and Yum-Yum, a woman they both love. The hilarious complications that ensue turn this satire into a hot American mix of jazz, gospel, and vaudeville.

IDS 443 IDS 2015 Summer Rep 2 Romance “The Valiant”

Posted in Episodes, Plays on the IntraWebs on June 29th, 2015

This is the second installment of IDS’s Summer Rep program.  This month’s program comes from the old time radio series, Romance.  The episode is entitled The Valiant.  Enjoy!!

From Generic Radio Workshop:

You may be surprised to discover that this half-hour CBS radio series ran from 1943 all the way until 1957. It seems to have been a catchall title that accommodated a variety of different formats and hosts, as long as the subject was love. There were at least 20 changes in the time and day it was aired during the length of its run, and eventually hundreds of episodes were aired.
