IDS 470 Suspense 2462

Posted in Episodes, Plays on the IntraWebs on January 4th, 2016

While we are still in the holiday break for the business end of this podcast, we thought you might enjoy another one of our “Plays on the IntraWebs” series…this time we offer an episode of an OTR series called Suspense which is entitled 2462Enjoy and we will return to our regularly scheduled programming next week!!

Suspense_1946_Title

From Generic Radio Workshop:

Suspense, radio’s “outstanding theater of thrills” was one of the true highlights of the Golden Age of Radio’s final two decades. Not all the programs over 20 years were masterpieces, but many were. One in particular — Agnes Moorehead’s one-woman tour-de-force “Sorry, Wrong Number” ranks right behind “War of the Worlds” as one of the most memorable single broadcasts of all time (enough that it was repeated about five times!)

But there were plenty of other spooky, scary, exciting, or just plain suspenseful shows. Suspense had success during much of its run bringing in film and radio stars, then playing them against their established character types. Thus Fibber McGee and Molly might find themselves meanaced during a car ride, or Gene Kelly might turn up as a soft-spoken killer.

Suspense appeared in several variations over the years, including one hosted by the “Man in Black” and another that ran a full hour. Roma Wines was Suspense‘s chief sponsor, but Autolite also sponsored several years of broadcasts. When the last episode aired September 30, 1962, it marked the end of an entire era of radio.

Our Cast:

John Mauldin as 108303715 (Frank Smith) and Clerk.

IDS 469 Happy New Year’s Special

Posted in Episodes, Plays on the IntraWebs on December 28th, 2015

Happy New Year, IDSers!  Let’s celebrate with a wacky and zany OTR script from 1930 entitled Station KUKU.

"STATION KUKU," written and directed by Raymond Knight and broadcast by the 
National Broadcasting Company, is considered the most popular humorous program 
on the air. It is a burlesque on broadcasting and illustrates that the pun is 
not the lowest form of humor broadcast. In casting the production, which is a 
weekly program, Knight uses actors and actresses with wide ranges of voice 
characterizations. The following script is a typical "KUKU" broadcast and is 
an outstanding example of radio comedy as written. The broadcast runs thirty 
minutes.--Peter Dixon, 1931


Happy-New-Year-2015-Clip-Art-04
The cast features two IDS favorites John Mauldin and Brad Oxnam 
with background support from Jonathan Phipps.

John Mauldin as Ambrose J. Weems, Eddie McGuirk, Louie, and Nurse.
