PROJECT AUDION Ep 55 - Suspense
SUSPENSE, Episode 55 Premiered May 10, 2024 Suspense is one of classic radio's most highly-regarded dramas -- with good reason. It sustained a remarkably high quality level of dramatic tension for 20 years, as the many surviving recordings attest. But a handful of episodes are lost - and Project Audion now recreates one of them. "The Life of Nellie James" was intended as Suspense's premiere, but circumstances pushed it back to the third episode. It was performed once, live, on July 1, 1942, but never heard again. Until now -- as Project Audion, kicking off its fifth season, brings together a transcontinental cast in a live transcription of "The Life of Nellie James" from the original 1942 script. A dreadful murder takes place in the Simon James home, and justice is done ...or is it? It's a tale well-calculated to keep you in ...Suspense! Featured in our cast are – Patte Rosebank in Canada Tim Burns in Kansas Andy Hartson-Bowyer in Virginia Richard Huitema in Florida Mel Rose in Pennsylvania Pete Lutz in Texas Art Brown in California Denny Thompson in Colorado Frank Guglielmelli in Pennsylvania Sharon Grunwald in New Jersey Larry Groebe produced and directed from Texas

PROJECT AUDION 51 - Benny's Back!
Just premiered for the International Jack Benny Society annual convention, and now available to all: a "new" episode of the classic Jack Benny radio show newly penned exclusively for Project Audion by Bob Hope comedy writer Robert L. Mills. Here, Jack and the gang do a send up of the movie "Witness for the Prosecution" - with W. C. Fields in a guest-starring role.    Here's what Mr. Mills said after hearing the final product: "This as near perfection as any living humans could possibly recreate a 75-year-old radio show. You performed miracles producing this and the program will take its place among the best work you've ever done." As Jack would say... "Well!” That's a tribute to the cast and crew. Go ahead - join our virtual studio audience and laugh at the efforts of these talented voice actors...   John Bell in Alabama Pete Lutz in Texas Ken Jeffries in California Carl Thomas in Texas Bob Beaumont in California Angela Young in Florida Harry Middlebrooks in CA Norman Cline in Kentucky Bob Mills wrote the script in LA While back in Texas,  Larry Groebe oversaw the production

PROJECT AUDION 50 - Mystery in the Air
Peter Lorre is an actor with such a distinctive voice and presence that even now, 60 years after his death, he's still instantly identifiable. It's surprising he didn't do more radio dramas, but he did host and star in "Mystery In The Air" in 1947. As a summer replacement show, there were only 17 episodes, and only 8 or so recordings exist -- so Project Audion asked Pete Lutz to create a NEW Mystery in the Air script. The result is both light-hearted and supernaturally spooky, and thanks to our transcontinental cast of talented voice actors, sounds just like an unheard episode from this terrific vintage series: Pete Lutz in Texas Lothar Tuppan in California Jeff Billard in Massachusetts Geri Elliff in Texas Angela Young in Florida John Bell in Alabama Bob Beaumont in California with Larry Groebe (in TX) handling sounds, music, and production
