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 an episode of Escape from April the 9th of 1949 called "When The Man Comes, Follow Him". This story is about what happens when some San Francisco gangsters head up an expedition in search of the Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine which is said to be lost in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona.

This comes about when Heineman, the blind boss of a criminal syndicate and his right-hand man, Pascal, receive an unexpected visit from Heineman's brother Mark.

Mark, spends most of his time prospecting for gold in the Arizona desert (and is somewhat estranged from his brother ) stumbles into Heineman's San Francisco home. Beaten, shot and half dead he is waving around a map mumbling something about a, "Treasure Of Kings".

After a few more words Mark expires, leaving the map and the admonition, "When the man comes, follow him"

"When the Man Comes, Follow Him" was written by Ralph Bates and adapted for radio by Les Crutchfield.

Segment Two:

Is another reading by a LibriVox volunteer. This time Dorlene Kaplan reads Jack London's, not quite ghost story, "That Dead Men Rise Up Never".

"That Dead Men Rise Up Never" was first published in 1917 as a part of ,"The Human Drift"... a book of short stories by London. It is the telling of something that happened to Jack when he was working as a 17-year-old sailor in the Pacific.

Segment Three:

From X Minus One a show from January the 4th of 1956, "The Roads Must Roll" which is based on the Robert A. Heinlein short story of the same name published by Astounding Science Fiction in June of 1940.

"They glided down an electric staircase, and debouched on the walkway which bordered the north-bound five-mile-an-hour strip." Have you ever ridden a conveyor strip before?" Gaines inquired. "It's quite simple. Just remember to face against the motion of the strip as you get on." They threaded their way through homeward-bound throngs, passing from strip to strip... After passing through three more wind screens located at the forty, sixty and eighty-mile-an-hour strips, respectively, they finally reached the maximum speed strip, the hundred mile and hour strip, which made the round trip, San Diego to Reno and back, in twelve hours." -From "The Roads Must Roll".

Segment Four:
