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 an episode of the Black Museum called, “The Bath Tub” which aired in 1951.

It's the story of serial killer George Joseph Smith. Smith was arrested on January 4 of 1915 and charged with the murder of 3 women. Beatrice Mundy, Alice Burnham and Margaret Lofty. There were two other murders of which he is generally considered guilty but was not tried for or convicted of.

The modus operandi in all these cases was the same. Smith, under a series of aliases married and then murdered the women. The motive was also in each case the same, The deed was done for their money. Making the crime, if possible, even worse was the small amounts involved. None of these women rich but where, in fact, of rather modest means. The murders Netting in no case more than about 3000 pounds in one case and only a few hundred in the others.
His method of murder was the same in all cases. Smith married the woman made sure they made a will leaving him their money.

Next he would take them around to a doctor with stories about fainting spells.

Then he killed them in as they took a bath.

He then called the same doctor the victims had seen before. Convinced by Smiths tales of the womans illness the doctor would find the the cause of death as accidental drowning during an epileptic fit.

George Joseph Smith was hung on the 13th August of 1915.

Segment Two:

Is from Arch Obler's Lights Out program for April 20 of 1943, and is entitled, "Kill". This is a tight little melodrama that takes place in the memories of a man on trial for murder. It doesn't deny that he killed the woman whose death is charged with . He knows he must atone for the woman death in the only way he can. He's just wants us to understand about the devil woman and the voices in his head.


Segment Three:

CBS's mystery theater actually did take its warrant to be rather broadly based, it would often do stories that don't exactly fit into the mystery theme. One such was January 28 of 1980s The God Machine.

According to the narrator It's maybe 1000 years in the future and as often happens in Dystopic futures, a machine has gone amok. Oh, people are resilient and most people have figured out how to keep their heads down and go about their lives. But there are always a few who stand up and argue for their rights. And you know what happens to people who stand a head taller than their neighbors don't you?
