Wow, what a hell of a week for Radio Drama Revival! I got interviewed by Justin Ellis of the Portland Press Herald for the NXT Podcast, a youth culture column, and my chat with him made it on the NXT Halloween Special… thanks Justin for a great chat and for being interested in what this audio thing is all about. If you were referred to this site by listening to that podcast, I’d love to hear from you — email fred@ the domain of this site.
Also a shout-out to the Strange Maine blog, an ongoing insight into the spooky and dark crevices of Maine, who did a great write-up for the special… And if you haven’t heard it, yeah, the Halloween special was a hell of a hit! So much, in fact, that radiodramarevival.com went down for a couple of hours last night… that technical issue’s been sorted out, and I apologize if you had trouble getting the stories. It’s now all cool so hit that button going on your podcast player!
In general, this month of horror has DOUBLED the amount of people visiting the site… So hey, lots of love to the loyal listeners, and very very welcome to those who are just checking this out for the first time. Hope you stick around for a bit, and drop me a line on what you think, what you’d like to see happen, and why not comment on a story?
And finally… to today’s show. We leave the dark and twisted corners of the human imagination (for a little while) to head to New Orleans, land of dreams, land of the dead… It’s my true pleasure to play the very first piece I ever did, for the holiday that bears its name — Day of the Dead.
A young man heads to New Orleans in search of his missing lover… He finds much more than he expects, and is changed in ways he could never imagine. A tribute to a beautiful, strange and magnificent city, with a story inspired by my own strange journey and the myth of Orpheus.
