Free Downloads of Other Radio Dramas

Here is an archive of all of the 'other' themed radio drama shows we have played over the years. All episodes are free to download, however if you like it we hope you'll explore more shows by the artist and support them. We love 'other' - it includes things like holiday and romance programming, shows where there aren't enough for their own category, as well as stuff that REALLY defies description. Dig in, friend.

Episode 369 – A Trip to Lesotho, and a Troll of Stony Brook

While Fred is back in the U.S. of A, he’s spiritually still in Lesotho, so he shares a few more sounds, memories, and a killer interview he got with a local band while in the “Magic Mountain Kingdom.” The band Sotho Sounds consists of local herdsboys who grew up tending cattle, sheep, and goats, and […]

Episode 348 – Trying to Find Mother and Discovering a Paradox

This week we experience the offbeat audio musical Paradox, written by New York based filmmaker Jack Feldstein. Jack’s already well versed in the offbeat; his process of filmmaking consists of ‘neonizing’ live action or animation footage to create a whole new work, with funky, witty narratives. You have to see it to believe it. Now […]

Episode 329 – Bitten by the Serpent in the Bee-Loud Glade

This week we take a departure from our usual programming to enjoy a thoroughly different poetic experience in Roger Gregg’s album Serpent in the Bee Loud Glade. Derived from his short-run theatre experience “The Bee Loud Glade Cabaret,” the studio album takes original lyrics as well as classic poems and dramatizes them in a way […]

Episode 310 – Welcoming in the Mayan Llamageddon

The end of the world is nigh, and we’re going out with a bang with a mondo 90 minutes of audio theater madness celebrating the ‘leave nothing for tomorrow for there is no tomorrow’ fatalistic hopes of the likely to be uneventful Mayan Apocalypse. First up on our roster, a taste of Jazz Book on […]

Episode 306 – The Truth Puts Us in “Good Hands”

This week The Truth returns, the remarkable (in the fullest sense of that word) audio drama podcast that seeks to reinvent the format for 21st century aesthetics.

Episode 294 – Slip Sliding with the Silver Tongued Devil

This week we wrap up a month featuring the works of Irish dramatist Roger Gregg with a piece off his collection Diabolic Playhouse, “The Silver Tongued Devil.” This saucy mockumentary tries to uncover a surprising Irish poetry sensation… while lampooning Irish culture, academia, mass hysteria, and maybe even a jab at poetry itself (aren’t all […]
