Season 9 of the Sonic Society hosted by David Ault and Jack Ward provides a proper nod to one of the most popular Science Fiction Audio Drama heroes of all “time”. This month marks FIFTY YEARS OF DOCTOR WHO and beyond Big Finish’s official Doctor adventures there’s a pile of Whovian fare out there. Beyond our own David Ault’s adventures in Darker Projects there’s Mark Kalita in Broken Sea, David MacIver from Giant Gnome, DAM Productions with David Nagel, DWAD, Terry Cooper from Gypsy Audio, and many many more.
However you look at it, the regenerations are endless and the stories are… well.. timeless.
Congratulations Doctor. And we hope to see you all in the Society.

If you’ve been noticing the lonely sound of emptiness in the feed lately its been because a series of catastrophes occurred all at once- well catastrophes and one joyous occasion.
But in the middle of it all, we lost the EVP server for two months. It’s now- thankfully- back up again, and we’re itching to get the shows we’ve had in the hopper so long out to you, our faithful and wondrous listeners!
David and I would like to begin with Six Days of Summer. Beginning on this day of Falling Back with our clocks, be prepared to Spring Forward as we offer a show a day for the entire run of the Sonic Summerstock 2013 Season!
That’s right, a new show every day! And after that… we’ll begin a similar raucous pace for Sonic Season 9.
In the meantime, look for some past backlogging on the RSS Feed!
Right here, on the Sonic Society…
Oh! And do give Huey a call. The poor guy feels positively lamentable in the past three months.

It’s been 75 years today that radio took America by storm. That King of Radio Theatre, Orson Welles had convinced those who were glued to their sets that the Martians had invaded, and the rest was history.
No one questioned the power of the audio story again, nor the way it could rivet a listener and paint pictures in the mind that left an indelible mark.
And to mark the three quarter of a century mark, who else, but the modern day equivalent of Mercury Theatre on the Air, the award winning, ever freshly sounding Colonial Radio Theatre takes on a shiny new story of this timeless tale of H.G. Wells’ invasion from the Red Planet.
Veteran writer M.J. Elliott brings back the feel of 19th century England, and with the dulcet tones of our own enormously talented David Ault in the main role along with the expert and clear direction of Jerry Robbins at the helm this story is instantly a classic.
I had thought all versions of the Martian attack had been seen almost endlessly, but instead of reprising Orson Welles’ inventive modern day style, the CRT gang goes back to the roots.
This is why Colonial Radio has been so popular through the years, in my opinion. They are one of the very few companies that captivate the joy of radio plays from the past with the skills of modern storytelling.
If you’re a fan of history, a fan of science fiction, or aching to pull out your steampunk attire, don’t hesitate. Get yourself a copy of “War of the Worlds” from either Amazon or Audible today! At $6.95 it’s a steal!
