Radio Drama Revival’s history starts with Fred Greenhalgh, who kicked the show off in January of 2007.
Fred’s passion for radio drama started with his discovery of the art while producing his first work, Day of the Dead. A dedicated fiction writer through high school and college, Fred found the audio format an ideal medium for his short stories and began the process of adapting the tales he’d collected over the years under the moniker of FinalRune Productions.
Still, there are only so many places one can hear radio drama, and when a free air slot opened up at Portland, Maine community radio station WMPG Fred sprung on the chance. Station management was up for a radio drama show and kerplam, Radio Drama Revival was born.
And that’s about it, really.
For more than two years, Fred’s been producing a tight half-hour show/podcast jammed with his favorites of the many audio tales that he’s had the pleasure to listen to. He also feels very passionate about speaking with the people behind the stories, and has interviewed just about everyone who’s ever had their work on the show (the exception being himself).
Looking at the future, well… there are no shortage of tales, and hopefully radio drama keeps reviving. If you’re interested in submitting work, just send in a URL through the contact form or mail a CD to:
