This week we talk to sound effects guru Tony Palermo, creator of the excellent radio drama resource RuyaSonic and professional sound-man. He’s worked on a mind-boggling large number of productions, and with no shortage of audio celebrities — Norman Corwin, Peggy Webber, Art Gilmore, Janet Waldo, Fred Foy, Yuri Rasovsky, Roger Gregg, Sue Zizza, Barbara Watkins, Bobb Lynes, David Ossman, Michael Gough, Lori Tubert, the Liquid Radio Players, James Napoli, and the sound effects greats Bob Mott, the late Ray Erlenborn and Cliff Thorsness, to name a few.
We discuss the joy of presenting radio theater live on stage and how the changing placement of today’s audience affects (or should affect!) how audio artists approach their work. Most enjoyable[audio:http://media.blubrry.com/radiodramarevival/www.radiodramarevival.com/podcasts/rdr-podcast118.mp3]
As an added bonus, Roger Gregg has given the show yet another gift — a theme! Free Crazy Dog CD to anyone who figures out which Gerry Murphy poem the theme originates from.
