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 1974 Himan Brown (1910-2010) convinced CBS to set aside an hour every night for radio drama. So, nearly a quarter of a century after the hay day of radio drama Himan Created The CBS Radio Mystery Theater. It ran for nine years.To the delight of millions of fans, then and now.
The CBS Radio Mystery Theater produced nearly 1,400 episodes.This is one of then, "The Girl Who Found Things".

This episode originally aired on July 19th of 1974, .

The story opens as Geraldine Wheeler is preparing to leave her home and board a ship bound for Europe. The trip she takes is a very different one than the trip she envisioned.

In the very next scene David Wheeler, and his wife of a couple of years, return to his childhood home just in time for the investigation of the disappearance of his half sister Geraldine. Another discovery is awaiting him. It turns out that in the course of this investigation his somewhat eccentric aunt has insisted on the inclusion of Iris, a troubled orphan girl, about who is said, "She can find things". David does not believe in psychic powers. And he does, most certainly not believe in this girl.


Segment Two:

H. P. Lovecraft - The Statement of Randolph Carter.

This short story was written in December of 1919 and was first published in The Vagrant magazine for May of 1920.

The story is based on one of Lovecraft's dreams. Which he later wrote up, adding a preamble to make it move more fluidly and cast in the form of a testimony to the police.


Segment Three:

Vanishing Point is the title of a science fiction anthology that ran on CBC Radio from 1984 until 1986. It featured an intro that declared Vanishing Point, "The point between reality and fantasy". Apparently this was just to make sure we understood the nature of the series.

Vanishing Point was produced by Bill Lane in the CBC's Toronto studios.

The episode this time is delivered with a distinctly light touch. It's the story of a middle-aged bleep named Fano. Who is spending the evening drinking alone in a seedy bar near the Space-Station. When a couple of likable veterans of the Space-Corps, Dareio and Wallo decided to try their luck with Fano.

Fano is a little drunk on Gargle, and mostly because of this begins to open up and relate to Dareio and Wallo the story of the last Transmogrification of Agent X and the, "Curse Of The Unnamed Planet". Which most would agree was horrible.

The episode aired on Vanishing Point on October 21, 1985.


Segment Four:
Is an episode of Believe It or Not from January 18th of 1944 entitled, "Little Girls".

Music:
Stewart Jhon - Streets of Laredo (1996).

McGuinn, Roger - The St. James Infirmary (2004).
The Kingston Trio - The Tiajuna jail (1959).
Eurythmics - Sweet Dreams, Are Made Of This (1984).

These dates should not be taken as canonical.
