This is a 64 kbs version of 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 . In this connection I will post a new show by Tuesday or Wednesday of each week. I will post a new show by Tuesday or Wednesday of each week. There is also a 128 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:

The CBS Radio Workshop 57-07-28 “Never Bet the Devil Your Head
This is Based on a short story from Edgar Allen Poe.
Did you know Poe could be funny?Listen to this one and make up your mind

The CBS Radio Workshop was an experimental dramatic radio anthology series that aired on CBS from January 27, 1956, until September 22, 1957. Subtitled “radio’s
distinguished series to man’s imagination,” it was a revival of the earlier Columbia Workshop, broadcast by CBS from 1936 to 1943, and it used some of the same
writers and directors employed on the earlier series. The CBS Radio Workshop was one of American network radio’s last attempts to hold onto, and perhaps recapture,
some of the demographics they had lost to television in the post-World War Two era.
Segment Two:

The Price Of Fear 10/06/73 “Lot 132”
Do you believe a painting can be haunted, can it be evil? Vincent comes to think so.
Another exclent story. A blend Vincent Price’s real life love of painting with fiction to brew an excellent tale.

“The Price Of Fear” was a Horror-Mystery program produced sporadically by BBC Radio. Enormously successful in the United Kingdom and abroad, it produced a total of 22 episodes between 1972 and 1982.
For it’s writing talent the show drew from a pool of talented new writers, such as William Ingram (who wrote the majority of the scripts). Dramatizing the most chilling stories they could find the show often did adaptations of the works of established writers: Roald Dahl,A.M. Burrage,Bram Stoker and others.

The Show was hosted by, and usually starred Vincent Price. Price whose background in horror and suspense on radio,television and, of course, movies back dropped the series in a way only a handful of performers could. Mostly though it was the way Price narrated these tales (as though he himself had actually lived them) that was responsible for the success of the show.
Segment Three:

X Minus One 55-05-29 “The Man in the Moon” A story written for X-Minus 1 by staff writer George Lefferts
New Roman,Times,serif;font-size:x-small;”>In this story Scientists keep disappearing. And for some reason no one believes a this guy who says “They’re on the moon”!

X Minus One is considered the finest science fiction drama ever produced for radio. It was not the first. That honor belongs to 2000+. It wasn’t the second, That would be Dimension X. In fact the first 15 episodes of it’s 1955 to 1958 run on NBC were new versions of Dimension X episodes. The remainder were all most entirely adaptations of recently published science fiction stories (Mostly from Galaxy Science Fiction Magazine) usually written by the leading writers of the time, including Philip K. Dick, Fritz Leiber, J.T. McIntosh, Robert A. Heinlein, Frederik Pohl and Theodore Sturgeon.

For all of us who were weaned on The Outer Limits and The Twilight Zone and for the Trekkies (er,Trekkers) among us, you should know that X Minus One is the forefather of the science fiction you grew up on. You will find that it still is some of the best Science Fiction ever aired.
Segment Four:

Gregg Margarite‘s reading of Robert Sheckley’s “Warrior RacFrom the The Libervox Project and issue.

“Brave men wish to die in battle. It is our fondest wish. You are the first enemy we have had in many years, since we subdued the mountain tribes.”
“Sure,” Fannia said. “But let’s talk about it…”
