Welcome to the fund drive! That’s right, it’s that time of year again when we ask you lovely audio drama listeners to support our parent station that helps us bring audio drama back to the radio airwaves. With the 2018 Federal budget plan calling for the complete elimination of funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, WCBE is in critical need of listener support. We would never have gotten to where we are today without WCBE, and we’re asking to you to help keep audio storytelling to the airwaves by going to wcbe.org and clicking on the “Donate” button at the top of the page.

Who’s ready for space adventures with Ray Gunn and Starburst? This week we’re going for a more light-hearted show as we jet across the universe with our reluctant hero Raymond Gunn and his friend-on-the-run, Starburst. Along with a cranky A.I. and a quarrelsome narrator, our heroes must stop the evil Castelan Lar, head of the Darkley’s Empire, who is determined to taking over the galaxy with pastries in hand. What started out as a six-episode adventure funded via Kickstarter campaign in 2015 has turned into an ongoing series with Season 2, which is wrapping up production and will be available soon through iTunes, Stitcher, and their website raygunnandstarburst.wordpress.com .Read More →
The title says it all! Last week we left you with Part 1 of The Intergalactic Nemesis: Robot Planet Rising. Now with the end of the fund drive passed and as a thank-you for all your support, we released Part 2 on our show for the first time on MAT. But not only that – it’s a night of tales about these Mechanical Monoliths as we’re revisited by a tale from the ‘Blast-Off Patrol’ of Two-Minute Danger Theater, entitled “The Killer Robots from Space”. Enjoy!!
I’m trying, guys, I’m trying! I know these late-posting episodes are a bit annoying; going to see what can be done to fix this over the next few weeks. Thank you all for your patience. Moving onwards! Another new episode. When listening in, you’ll hear mention about auditioning for some audio drama work.

We had an overwhelming amount of talent turn out, and you guys definitely aren’t making the decisions easy. However, we are endeavoring toRead More →
Yes, MAT exists! Yes, I’m late again with posting the episode. Yes, I have a perfectly reasonable explanation, a great one that doesn’t sound at all like I forgot and got overwhelmed with work. Why would I do that? Nope, not me. Not at all. Un-uh. …. So! Sorry about that everyone. Promises to get that sorted. In the meantime, we’re back with some tastes of the new and old. First is Black Jack Justice with ‘Sabien’s Pet’, followed by Byron Chronicles in ‘The Coming Storm’. Then after that, we’ve got a little extra time (though sadly not enough for an episode ofRead More →
