Apropos current happenings in the US Congress, thanks to anonymous and Horror Lair you can read three-drafts-in-one of Brian Nelson’s Hard Candy (which is now available on DVD). That would be on the movie scripts page.
And, thanks to M you can read some transcripts from the Golden Age of Radio. As you know, companies sponsored a lot of radio shows. Read Raising Junior sponsored by Wheatena and Forty Fathom Trawlers sponsored by 40 Fathom Fish Company (which later became High Liner Foodservice).
A bit ago I mentioned Silent Universe on the Radio Scripts page and posted a rough draft (with permission) of episode three. Now, the broadcast of Episode 3 of Silent Universe is out. If you’ve listened to the first two episodes, by all means, head on over to Episode 3. If you are new to the series or “Sci Fi Curious”, listen to the all the episodes in order.
Emmeline meets up again with Jack. She is tortured by the Chi Coms.

It is no secret that I’m a big fan of Old Time Radio (OTR). My new friend Stan, who works for The American Museum of Radio and Electricity,
sent over his drama company’s rendition of Skyscraper. You can listen and read along over on the Radio Scripts page.
When you have a moment, do check out The American Museum of Radio and Electricity. Located in Bellingham, Washington, USA the museum has the definitive collection of radios, related gear and all sorts of instruments from the historic development of electrical transmission: Tesla coils, etc. As one might expect, they also run their own radio station – KMRE 102.3 FM broadcasting in Bellingham, Washington. Enjoy the best music and classic broadcasts from the Golden Age of Radio. – Don
Update on the Radio Scripts page – All three scripts to the first three episodes of Silent Universe are now available.
I grew up listening to rebroadcasts of Superman, The Shadow and Green Hornet from the Golden Age of Radio. Later, radio adaptations of Star Wars and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy came out and were much enjoyed. The folks over at Silent Universe have brought back the good old days of Radio with a modern twist.
Silent Universe follows the adventures of Emmeline Kaley, a professional mercenary who finds herself involved with a covert organization after a paying job goes horribly wrong. Teamed with a motley cast of characters including a weapons specialists, a computer hacker, an ex-mercenary and even a casino tycoon, Emmeline Kaley is forced to go to extreme lengths to prevent tragedy from striking the solar system. With a style of drama that mixes elements of 24 and the new Battlestar Galactica, each episode of the Silent Universe reveals layers of suspense and intrigue that leaves audiences guessing at what twists its plot will take next.
Fans of OTR should give Silent Universe a try. Head on over to the Radio page and take a look at the production scripts for the first three episodes of Silent Universe and give episodes one and two a listen. I’m sure you will not be dissappointed. – Don
Thanks to the mysterious M we can read six scripts from the golden age of radio. Read The Tell Tale Heart, and early Quiet Please or a Fibber McGee and Molly. Thanks to sites like The Generic Radio Workshop we can read some of these treasures from the past. And, thanks to sites like Radio Lovers we can listen to a few of these shows. So, head on over to the Radio Scripts page and curl up with a good script (or transcript).
