Hullo-hullo! No, I have not forgotten about you all! Actually I've been agonizing way too much over how to keep this precious place alive the past couple of months. However, with the addition of some great contributors, I think I'm getting a handle on things. :-) Welcome and thank you to my new peeps! Remember, if you'd like to contribute to the blog, click the email on the side bar- the more the merrier!
One big reason I haven't been contributing as much is simply a lack of time to sit and listen to things! However, today I am sitting waiting for repair people to show and fix my fridge, so I scanned my iTunes list. One of the best audio cinema shows out there, Radio Drama Revival- just aired brand-spanking-new Crazy Dog Audio on their show yesterday, so I decided to treat my ears and listened in.
"The Salmon of Blackpool" is definitely intriguing. An audio drama about the making of a movie (with a mysterious twist, of course). You feel like you are sitting in listening to an actual scene being filmed- it's really quite impressive. But what would you expect from Crazy Dog, other than impressive? It's part one- and definitely makes you want to know more about this movie, and the odd happenings surrounding it.
One of the reasons Fred's show appeals to me so much is that is cuts right to the good stuff. Shows are 30 minutes, and he gets right to talking about the show you are about to hear, and is very insightful in his descriptions. He knows what we want and gives it straight up- awesome audio cinema! If you haven't taken a listen yet, then it's about time you did!
