This is a weekly program airing on KSOW 106.7 FM in Cottage Grove, OR. as part of the stations commitment to sustaining the tradition great radio theater. I will post a new show by Tuesday or Wednesday of each week.

In the main, each episode consists of four approximately 30-minute long programs (not always, as
sometimes I use a longer form show, so it may be 3 or fewer) and some filler to bring them in at 120 minutes.
.

Broadcast Advisories

Use these programs in any way that suits you, commercial, non-commercial (well,don't sell it). Use them on your low power FM station or your AM station. Stream it on your internet station or stream. Whatever. Edit them if you want to, however you want to! I'm easy. In a few cases commercials have been left in but in those cases there is disclaimer stating that they are there for "historical perspective" only. I have edited out any underwriter spots that once existed. There is no comment about run times ( i.e. "It's Sunday night at 10 pm and this is Night Transmissions.") Also I have edited out any mention of the town I live in. In other words I have endeavored to make make these programs as "Evergreen" and global as possible. I would even consider making (at some point) shows that are tailored to some degree for specific locations. In most cases the mp3 file runs a little longer than 120 minutes. However, in all cases the main show comes in at under 120 minutes; anything in excess of 120 minutes is just music that can safely be faded out.

As of show 21 there are 30 second musical interludes at 30,60 and 90 minutes. with the last 5 to 10 minutes or so of the show uninterrupted music that can be faded out on without too much ado. Exact timing is in the mp3 comments tag.

If you do broadcast or stream these I'd really be grateful if you dropped me a note.

This episode contains the following segments...
Segment One:

Is from the early 1970s South African Springbok radio serial, "The Avengers" which aired Monday - Friday in 6 or 7 parts of 15 minutes each . This episode, "The Joker", like all of these programs was adapted from a Television script. This one was based on a 1967 episode which shared the name (sometimes Springbok changed the name from the original screenplay). The television play itself was based on the 1963 episode, "Don't Look Behind You". The most notable difference in the teleplays is that the 1963 episode featured Honor Blackman as Steed's earliest female partner Cathy Gale.

Segment Two:

Is from the July the 12th. of 1955 episode of Suspense, "Kaleidoscope". In which a depressed astronaut , who is about to die as his ship falls earthward from orbit, contemplates his accomplishments, feeling they come to nothing.

This story is from Ray Bradbury's The Illustrated Man, a 1951 book of eighteen short stories.
