This is a weekly program which began on a now defunct low power FM station (KSOW) in Cottage Grove, OR. Since there seems to be some interest in the show I have decided to continue it. In this connection I will post a new show by Tuesday or Wednesday of each week. There is also a 64 bit version.

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 times will be in the mp3 comment 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 a visit to Raymond in his Inner Sanctum, dateing from June 18 of 1946, " I Want to Report a Murder". This time Raymond tells the story of one day in the life of a man whose bad judgment leads to the death of an innocent man. Naturaly, this leads to an attempt at blackmail... even though, maybe, the dead man is not so innocent or altogether dead.
In short, one man's very bad day!
Also in this segment, from a volunteer working with the Librivox Project; we have the reading of a 1906 short story written by Ambrose Bierce, namely Stanley Fleming's Hallucination.
Segment Two:
Contains from Wyllis Cooper's second seminal (really iconic) radio series of the macabre, Quiet,Please the story, "The Thing on the FourbleBoard (spoilers)". This episode of Quiet.Please is considered to be one of the finest half hours of radio horror ever produced. Other than that I have very little to say and will not tease you further.
The Thing on the FourbleBoard aired on the Mutual Broadcasting System on August the 9th of 1948. Written and directed by Wyllis Cooper, it featured Ernest Chappell in the starring role..
Rounding off this segment is an episode of Five-Minute Mysteries, A syndicated series from the late 1940s. Tonight it's, "The Postman Didn't Ring".
Segment Three:
Is Dimension X with the episode, "No Contact". A story in which the "Space Blues" and something called the, "Galactic Barrier" figure prominently. Ordinarily Dimension X presented adaptations of previously published science fiction stories from various sources. They went so far as to attempt in 1950 a 25 minute version of Isaac Asimov's classic novel Pebble in The Sky. In their defense I guess I should note that in 1950 the novel had just been published so was, obviously. not yet a classic. It's easy to check out Dimension X's effort as it's included as segment three of Night Transmissions #1.
There were also a handful of original screenplays in the run of the series. "No Contact" was one such. The screenplay was by George Lefferts and Ernest Kinoy. It aired on April the 29th of 1950 and starred Wendall Holmes and Lawson Zerbe.
Dimension X was an NBC radio program broadcast on an unsponsored, sustaining basis from April 8, 1950 to September 29, 1951. The first 13 episodes were broadcast live, and the remainder were pre-recorded. Fred Wiehe and Edward King were the directors, and Norman Rose was heard as both announcer and narrator

Segment Four:

Starts off with an episode from 1935's mystery series Suspicion, "Formula for Death". Like so many really undeniably old examples of "Old-Time Radio", there ain't much to say. The truth is that nothing much more than the recordings of these shows has survived to be passed down the decades. It has been reported that the episodes were produced and recorded at the venerable A.M. radio station WLW in Cincinnati Ohio. Other than that I have no idea who made these or how they were syndicated. Or how popular they were.
I don't even know how frequently they were aired, Once a week? Five days a week? As far as I can tell no one really knows.
The show did have a gimmick that attempted to ensure that people would tune in one show to the next. The mystery was not resolved or the Evildoer unmasked at the end of the episode but at the beginning of the subsequent one. It seems a bit much to ask you to wait until I get around to playing the next episode. So I have undone the producers scheme with just a little bit of editing.

Music:

Aaron Copland - Fanfare for the Common Man (1942).
Pentangle - The Earle Of Sailsbury (traditional) (1968).
Tim Hart & Maddy Prior - My Son (traditional) (1968).
Rebecca Pidgeon - The Four Marys (1997).
Looking Glass - Brandy You're A Fine Girl (1972).
Joni Mitchell - Real Good For Free (1974).
