Old Radio Shows

Ever want to go back to the "good ole days" - before Video Killed the Radio Stars? This site's got quite a library.

D.B. Echo - This sounds right down your alley. (By the way, I still have the BBC LOTR Radio CD's) =P

I've always been a fan of radio shows. They engage the imagination of the listener in a way that television and movies do not engage the viewer. I own several copies of The War of the Worlds broadcast, I was thrilled back in the late 70's when someone tried to revive radio drama on mainstream commercial radio (I remember a science fiction storyline, but not much else), and I've been a huge fan of the stuff on NPR, from oldies like The Goon Show and I'm Sorry, I'll Read That Again to more modern incarnations like the Sherlock Holmes stories from the 1980's and, of course, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

I actually listen semi-regularly to a Christian(!) radio show produced by Focus On The Family(!!!) called "Adventures In Odyssey" just because it's done so darned well. It borrows the occasional sound effect and technique from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - one of the characters in a storyline was even named Arthur Dent, a sure sign that this Christian radio show is heavily infuenced by the writings of a committed Atheist! It's worth a listen.

Christians? Influenced by Athiests? Awesome. Now all they need to do is recognize Athiesm as a religion. =P
