  • Even though there was a couple “dead” spots, I think that bring back something old and “DEAD” this time of year is a great idea. I hope you all enjoyed this show as well as I did. Cap

  • We have come a long way from mixing sounds with three tape players cued up and a box of gravel! I am surprised and pleased that the reel-to-reel deck I was using didn’t break the rubber band drive while dubbing!

  • Regarding the Ghost of Benjamin Sweet where did you attain performance rights? I have a copy of the script and am thinking about perforiming it for my radio show.
