Arr! Avast ye lollygaggin’ scallywags! Ye may have noticed a few of our past episodes have gone missin’ – that’s ’cause they were mutinous reruns and we had them run the plank. ‘Tis time for something new, me hearties! Ahem. Sorry about that. Hey there, audio drama fans – this show we go the full hour with the Atlanta Radio Theatre Company and their newest release, Treasure Island! This is a five-part adaptation of the classic tale, outlined by Thomas E. Fuller and Brad Strickland with Stickland completing the full script adaptation. Both Fuller and Strickland found Treasure Island to be a natural choice for audio drama, withRead More →
Welcome back, everyone! Last week we sat in with 19 Nocturne Boulevard to hear some adaptations on two classic stories. Tonight is something similar, but in a completely different vein – and yet, related. Clear as mud? We’re talking about live radio drama performances! Modern audio dramas performed before an audience, while throwing back to the style of Old-Time Radio (OTR). If you’re a regular listener, you’ve heard some of this on our show already – performance recordings from groups like Atlanta Radio Theatre Company and Great Northern Audio Theatre have made their way to air here, and have been heard and performed at conventions andRead More →
Happy Last-Week-Of-November, everyone! I have some good news and possibly not-so-good news. The not-so-good: there’s no new MAT Feature tonight. But we have a good reason, and it leads us to our good news — we have a full show with the Atlanta Radio Theatre Company tonight, as they share with us some stories that fit into our last week of focus on family and remembrance. Admittedly, those of you in the U.S. will note that this episode aired the day (or two) after Thanksgiving – but between Black Friday madness and the horrors that have come to light in the news this month, it only seemed fitting that we take the extra time and sitRead More →
Welcome back! It’s October, and you know what that means – we’re kicking off a full month of spooky tales, in preparation for Halloween. But not everything is filled with horror; some of the tales we have for you will have tastes of the comedic and adventure to round out our listening pallets. This evening we decided to start things off with one of the masters of the supernatural, H.P. Lovecraft. Our friends at Atlanta Radio Theatre Company have comprised a collection of stories based on the writer’s tales, some to unnerve – and some to make you chuckle. ARTC has a new release of this collection on their website entitled,”TheRead More →
Welcome back, everyone! This episode, it’s another one of our, “no-chatting” shows as we stuff the hour to the brim with audio drama.

A few weeks ago, this piece was also the focus of an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds for its’ CD release, andRead More →
