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:

In today's show "Segment One" consists of an episode of Suspense that dates from February 16 of 1943 and is entitled, "In Fear And Trembling".

I'd like to say that this is an above average episode of Suspense. However, that would not be my true opinion. It is, in fact, a bit sub par. In "Fear and Trembling" we have a young woman who is suffering from some undefined illness. She has over time (and as the story opens) become convinced that her husband and her sister are up to no good and have plans for her that do not involve her recovery.

So, is it true? The narrative of the story trys awfully hard to make us think so.

So, why do I inflict on you a sub par program? I could take a highfalutin posture and claim that it is all in the interest of "historical perspective". That's a position I can defend easily enough. It has a sheen of authenticity and the merit of a patina of "Truthiness" (you know, about the same relationship to truth as "Imitation Cheese Food" has to"Cheese". So in closing I'd remind us all that not evey effort deserves a star but still may be worth attending to.

Segment Two:

Comes from The Mysterious Travler for January 6 of 1945 and is called, "They Who Sleep". It's another story of sisterly jealousy and intrigue. This time with a little fantasy folded into the mix.

Are you ready for a strange little tale? Of course you are! This is NightTransmissions. If you're not you'd be listening to, "Lum And Abner"... or possibly, " Our Miss Brooks". Two very fine shows but not NightTransmissions material. Instead we have a pleasant little tale about how to transfer one woman's soul into another woman's body. I wonder, does anyone notice? And, oh yes, is Rose really dead? Hard Cheese if she's not.

Segment Three:

Is from X Minus One for July 25 of 1957, " The Haunted Corpse".

It seems we have tripped over some kind of mini theme here. In this story there is this scientist who has also worked out the trick of transmogrification and finds he can transfer minds from one body to another. For some reason the military finds this to be a significant development and begins to draw schemes and entertain dreams of world domination. The usual military sort of thing.

Of course, the old scientist has ideas of his own.

Based on the story by Frederik Pohl which had been published in Galaxy Magazine a few months earlier in January of 1957 to be exact."The Haunted Corpse" was adapted for radio by William Welch.

X Minus One premiered in April 1955 on NBC and ran until January 1958. Like its predecessor series, Dimension X, X Minus One featured stories by the greatest names in modern science fiction: Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, Clifford Simak, Robert Bloch, and many more.

Segment Four:
Takes a turn for, The Unexpected with "King Champion" an episode from July 18th of 1948.

Chris Bailey is in a tight spot. Chris an owner of race horses hasn't had a winner for a while. It is this state of afairs which has caused Chris to follow along the edge of ruin. But now, Chris thinks that King Champion will turn this all around. But another owner, Martin is on a blue hot streak...

Then too, there is always a lady to complicate things. Still in this tight little 15 minute series, things are never what they seem.

Cream - Tales Of Brave Ulysses (1967)

Joan Baez - Dangling Conversation (1967)

Judy Collins - I Think It's Going To Rain Today (1967)
