A Red Cloth Day in Audio Drama

toweldayFor many of us, today is a very special day. May 25th is International Towel Day in honour of the grand numerian (that of “42” at least), Mr. Douglas Adams. Who is best known for his smash audio drama, later television series, movie, and the inaccurately described “trilogy The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Bring your towel and hope to hitch a ride today! (As long as it’s not a Vogon.)

Thrilling Adventure Hour Misleads Fans…

bensIt actually is more like 80 minutes of comedic action instead of just 60!

The Thrilling Adventure Hour packs a pile of fun in their live performances and according to The New Zealand Herald is just the right format for Los Angeles writing duo Ben Blacker and Ben Acker to hone their craft.

Folks who aren’t yet fans of the awesome AD have yet to experience some of their regular episodes like “Sparks Nevada, Marshal on Mars” and interplanetary cowboy tale and “Beyond Belief”, featuring Nick and Nora Charles, the high society ghostbusters among many other other sketches.

Find and subscribe the Thrilling Adventure Hour and enjoy hours (or more) of fun! You’ll really get the Bens.

Experimental Audio

beckIf you heard part one of my essay on the Audio Story over at the Audio Drama Production Podcastyou heard that I identify the audio landscape as having three corners like a triangle. Drama and Narrative are pretty easily defined with strong connections to play and novel sensibilities, but the third corner belongs exclusively to Experimental- the realm of sketches, surrealistic art pieces, and sometimes nonsensical aural works. Many of these are great comedic gems that intentionally break the fourth wall or provide some very mixed up non-directive story pieces.

Here’s another great example:

Have a listen to some of Samuel Beckett’s Avant-Garde Radio Plays: All That Fall, Embers, and More available now through youtube. Have a listen to the unusual and provocative!
