It’s another night of spooky tales tonight, with an extra-special thanks to you, our listeners! WCBE managed to raise over $200,000 towards its overall goal at the time of this posting (Nov.11), which is a huge help in keeping our station – and Midnight Audio Theatre – going strong on the airwaves! We’re still short about $59,000 still, however, so if you missed the chance to donate to our parent station, please do so over at their website, http://www.wcbe.org. Thank you so much for your support! As for tonight’s program, we’re looking forward to sharing more stories from Campfire Radio Theater in preparation for HalloweenRead More →
We’re taking a break from Campfire Radio Theater tonight to bring you some spooky stories of our own! We’re revisiting our MAT Features selections, with “Nirvana White”, “The Ghost of Arch Oboler”, “The Hostage”, and some lighter fare with “The Flower Stand”. All of these stories are winners of our Scriptwriting Competition of 2013 and 2014, and are recorded and performed by local Columbus talent. Right now our parent station, WCBE 90.5 FM Columbus, is in the midst of their annual Fall Fund Drive to raise money and support to keep the station and it’s programs on the air. We couldn’t have made all of MATRead 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!!
Hello audio drama listeners! Tonight we have a special episode – an encore presentation of The Intergalactic Nemesis, Book Two: Robot Planet Rising (Part 1), as our feature during WCBE‘s spring fund drive. If you’ll remember, The Intergalactic Nemesis came through Columbus as a live performance, and our airing of the original radio play was an exclusive to you, our listeners. We want to keep bringing you more stories fresh from the growing audio drama community, as well as our locally-casted and produced original stories, and to do that we want to continue to help WCBE. If you like what you hear on our show, headRead More →
Dear audio drama fans and listeners of WCBE: You are all fantastically amazing. WCBE managed to make their fundraising goal in full for the Fall, which is the first time in I-don’t-know-how-many years. And it’s all thanks you folks, you extraordinary listeners and supporters. I can’t say thank you enough. During the fund drive, we replayed Book One of “The Intergalactic Nemesis”. As a way of showing our thanks for your support, this episode we decided to release the first half of “The Intergalactic Nemesis, Book Two: Robot Planet Rising”. We have been saving this story for a special occasion, and thought tonight was theRead More →
Welcome, audio drama friends. We’re back with another episode of Decorated Air Theatre‘s “This Thing of Ours“, as well as another installment from our featured scriptwriting competition winners of 2012. Tonight’s selection is “Going Home” by Kathy Brady. They should be fun listens – and we even ended a little early this show, so you can take the rest of the hour off before your next class. 😉 As we continue to showcase our MAT features over the next few weeks, we’re going to make a point of taking some time each show to talk about the scriptwriting competition, the organizations who have lent aRead More →
Hey everyone! Another new episode of “The Incredible Adventures of Jack Flanders” by ZBS Productions tonight…but first, we wanted to touch on events at our parent station, WCBE 90.5 FM. WCBE 90.5 FM Columbus is holding it’s annual spring fund drive as we speak to raise money to keep the station running. MAT is a labor of love, but we wouldn’t be here to share audio drama stories with you if WCBE hadn’t invited us on its programming schedule. So if you like Midnight Audio Theatre and want to show your appreciation, please consider making a donation to WCBE’s fund drive. We love our parentRead More →
Hey everyone! Apologies to all listeners who tuned in for last week’s snafu repeat. Tonight’s show is all new and better! But there’s good and bad news. Good News: MAT is giving way to an hour-long program of original Halloween stories written and produced by students and faculty at The Ohio State University. Huzzah! Bad News: We don’t have a download available for you tonight. The only way you’ll catch it is if you listen in to WCBE 90.5 FM Columbus. If you live out of town, you can catch their streaming broadcast online at wcbe.org as well. Please check out the show on WCBERead More →
Good news: We have a new episode tonight, featuring a radio adaptation of “A Christmas Carol”! Bad news: We won’t have it available on this website for download; at least, not for a while. So if you’re checking this page during the regular broadcast hour, I’d encourage you to hop over to www.wcbe.org and click on the “Listen Here” link at the top of the page to tune in. Have a happy holidays everyone! Next week’s episode is up in the air at the moment, but we’ll definitely be back next year!
