Episode 155 – Our Fair Space Girl

168695_137455722982172_899573_nSpaceGirlTonight, our good friends at Great Northern Audio Theatre and Hartlife are back once again, though it is the last night you’ll be hearing this duo back-to-back.  It’s the last Great Northern audio story that we have to share with you on MAT for now.  If you’ve been enjoying their tales, you should definitely check out their website at for more entertainment.  We’ll have another production group to take their place next week, but you’ll have to tune in to find out who!

This episode, we start off with the Great Northern Audio’s “Space Girl: Downloading the Legacy“, the story of a superhero’s challenges in life 40 years after she started her hero career.  After that, we follow Nathan Rourke in and out of the Old Tunnel as we hear Episodes 7 and 8 of Our Fair City, Season 3, from Hartlife Productions.  From underground to outerspace, it should be a fun evening of audio drama!

And an extra shout-out to everyone who donated during the fund-drive for our parent station, WCBE 90.5 FM Columbus.  Without them we wouldn’t have a show to bring you audio drama on the airwaves.  Thank you so much!

LearningCurve2168695_137455722982172_899573_nHello, listeners!  It’s another lovely midnight for some audio theatre.  I’m happy to report that our friends at Great Northern Audio Theatre and HartLife are back once again.  We start things off with “The Learning Curve, or The Rise of Francis” – when politicians try to jump-start the economy through some unusual means and create a host of new bizarre problems.  After that, we catch up with Nathan Rourke and Neal Henderson in two more installments as they travel through Our Fair City, Season 3, in “The Incidence of Accidents” and “Stormhawks at the Diner”.  There are a lot of twists and turns tonight, and we hope you’ll join us as we navigate them all – it should be a fun listen!

19_wit_wizardry_draft_01blastoffpatrolWelcome back, audio drama fans, and a special hello to our new listeners tonight!

Episode 150 – In Memoriam: John S. Kuhn

John-KuhnHello MAT listeners, and any new visitors to our site this week.  Tonight’s show is a special episode to remember John S. Kuhn, Artistic Director of Actors Theatre of Columbus and a friend and supporter of MAT.  John passed away last Saturday from an apparent heart attack; he was 62.

John was a leader in the Columbus theatre community; well-respected, creative and imaginative, and dedicated to the art of theatre and its various avenues of performance.  Beneath a strong sense of professionalism he was also kind-hearted, understanding and eager to help, encouraging others to pursue their talents and their dreams.  And as he encouraged others, he was also there to help in whatever way he could, no matter how small, no matter how busy his own schedule became.  He never stopped creating, never stopped bringing the joys of theatre and performance to so many of us.

In tonight’s show, I talk about John and what he meant to MAT and the Columbus theatre community, followed up by excerpts of his performance in the title role of King Lear, as presented by the Actors Theatre of Columbus in 2007.  (Special thanks to Nick Baldasare who provided the recording that made this possible.)


Because of the nature of this show and the audience tuning in, we will have the show available for download for a limited time.  You can download the full, hour-long program by right-click/saving here.
