Well, this week is Begathon at WMPG, the familiar fundraising week where we go on the air to plead for money from our listeners. To try and make things more interesting, I’ve written my first drama intended for live broadcast, assembled a great cast, and can’t wait to make some original radio tomorrow afternoon!
For all my podcast listeners, I will of course be adding it post-facto, but if you’re in the Portland, Maine area or close to a computer you can listen to the live show at 1PM EST. Stream by clicking the link above, or tune in at 90.9/104.1 FM.
It all starts as an ordinary day at the station, with Stephanie Sample in the studio to talk about her latest adventures. But, a rocket ship crashing outside with exiled space DJs makes things a whole lot weirder. A land where all the media has been consolidated in the hands of an evil empire, where proponents of free speech are imprisoned and have to flee for their lives to distant galaxies?what planet are these guys from?
A whole lot of laughs, and hopefully a few bucks for the station. And hey, call in to pledge your support for Radio Stories, and let people know I have an audience! I’ve got a big pile of double-CD sets of my FinalRune Productions audio stories for anyone who donates more than $30.
