Robbins has been doing audio drama with CRT for well over a decade, that’s before the Internet and certainly before the idea of RSS and Podcasting was even an inkling in the minds of technology gurus. While folks were bemoaning the loss of audio drama from the Golden and Silver days, Mr. Robbins was hiking cassette tapes of his own productions to different companies.
There’s been an ugly rumour that those who sell their wares don’t make Audio Drama out of love. Many of us owe a thanks to those companies and individuals that kept the candle flickering before our recent renaissance.
And if there’s any question about passion in Audio Drama today, consider the list that Colonial Theatre worked on this year past… and let it inspire all of us to do more for 2009!

We’ve been incredibly fortunate to have Jerry open up his shows for podcast on the Sonic Socety in 2008, it’s great to see Colonial continue to make powerful and compelling audio drama!
