Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

Who is Jack Ward in the Audio Drama World Anyway?

Today is my birthday. Birthdays have a unique power- like Christmas and New Year celebrations- to force us to look back through our lives and consider some goals, high points, low points, lessons learned, lessons still to be learned and, if we turn around, the horizons yet ahead of us.

Electric Vicuna Coralled- Sonic Gold Survey Hiccup

| March 27, 2010

This morning when I woke up, there was a distinctly missing sound from the server- that being the sound of the fan operating. An email from a listener confirmed the nightmare- the server was down. I rebooted it, and sans fan it started fine. So today I need to run out and grab a new […]

Sonic Gold I wish I could say this is a metaphor but honest to goodness the Rogers and Hammerstein melody, “You’ll Never Walk Alone” is running through my head ceaselessly. And while I’ve been running around like the proverbial chicken for the last week, the truth is, I’ve not walked alone. This wonderful dream, of […]
