Atlanta Radio Theatre Company

Dieselpunk - December 21, 2014 - 10:43pm
The Diesel Era (1920s – 1940s) is often called the Golden Age of Radio. In an early post I wrote about the radio show A Prairie Home Companion as being one of the few continuing the legacy with new and original material. Another great source is the Atlanta Radio Theatre Company.


According to the ARTC web site:
The Atlanta Radio Theatre Company was founded in 1984 by radio personality William L. Brown and actor/director Patrick Stansbury. They incorporated ARTC as a non-profit educational corporation, dedicated to the production and distribution of quality audio drama.To procure funding, Mr. Stansbury persuaded the Citizens and Southern National Bank (as it was then known, later part of NationsBank, now Bank of America) to sponsor a weekly, one hour program on WGST-AM — and Mr. Brown turned his spare bedroom into a recording studio. Atlanta playwright Thomas E. Fuller (now better known as one of the authors of Wishbone books for young readers) was enlisted as principal writer, and numerous actors from the local theatrical community joined this exciting new venture.
Soon, program production became too complicated for a small bedroom studio. Henry Howard, owner of Audio Craft, made his facility available to ARTC and came on board as a producer.
 
This was simply the beginning of ARTC. They have continued to thrive in venues such as Dragon*Con and have a standing program year-round.
You can hear podcast recordings of some of their programming at their web site.

Murder in Belgrave Square ~ cover art and design for Tim Lewis (@TimLewisAuthor) I'm such a kid, sometimes. I really do enjoy creating book covers for children, especially the reluctant reader ages between seven and eighteen. Luckily for me, the Intermediate Reader - New Adult genres are booming right now, so I'm getting a lot of fun cover projects. :DI actually finished this cover months ago, but didn't have a blurb to post with it until now, so I held off showing it off.Blurb: January, 1892. Night. Fog. London. A cemetery. The police discover an abandoned hearse with an old coffin, with new nails. Inside the coffin is the body of a young, stylishly-dressed woman. Her throat has been slashed. The chase is on as Scotland Yard’s best detective relentlessly pursues the evidence, even when it directs him toward Queen Victoria’s family.  Scotland Yard Detective Edward Willoughby, who “solves the unsolvable”, pieces together a team of policemen who aid in making sense of the disjointed evidence. Follow them across London as they identify the victim and track down her killer.  I'm already contracted for the sequel, so it looks like murder is on my future :D Be sure to connect with Tim on Twitter, Facebook, and his Blog. Onto wrapping up the next book Until next time ...

Microphone Stand Camera Adapter

Steampunk Workshop - December 20, 2014 - 10:49pm
This is a superquick 3-D printing project. I found in the past that when I film videos in the workshop I am very often tripping over the tripod and the camera never seems to be in a convenient position to get the shot. I realized that I had a microphone stand that was very much like […]

Organizing All Of The Things

Steampunk Workshop - December 17, 2014 - 6:43pm
I have limited space in my shop and am constantly trying to condense the volume of space that my materials and supplies take up while still allowing me to find what I am looking for without digging through bin after bin. One of the best solutions I’ve found to this problem are large, shallow drawers. […]

Converting Welch Allyn Otoscope & Opthalmoscope to “C” Batteries

Steampunk Workshop - December 15, 2014 - 5:27pm
Like many small New England towns we don’t have curbside pickup for our trash, instead we bundle everything up and take it to the town dump on Saturdays. This would seem like an inconvenience but, also like many small New England towns, our town dump includes a “Swap Shop.” The Swap Shop is simply a […]

'Dark Dining' ~ cover art & design for James R Lord, III (@KhoTheMinotaur) For Dark Dining, James already had a good design concept; it just needed a few tweaks. Blurb: VAMPIRE ARE MADE. VAMPYR ARE BORN.   Vampires. They used to walk among the humans of the world, feeding on them. They were feared of in tales and legends told throughout the centuries.   Then they died out.   All except Lincoln, a Vampyr, one of the upper echelon of the vampire society.   After waking from a twenty five year sleep, Lincoln begins looking for a woman that is pregnant. He needs such a woman to rebuild his race...   Even a down on her luck waitress at Reba's, an all night truck stop diner located just outside of Hillview, West Virginia, would do.  But Lincolns' quest will not be as easy as he thinks.   Between a boyfriend that does not even want to be a father, a slighted ex employee, an old cook that remembers Lincoln from years past, a misunderstood dishwasher, and a hopelessly in love short order cook, this diner serves up a dangerous secret and Lincoln's task ends up becoming a nightmare, even for him.Interesting twist on an exciting and chilling species. :D    Oh! And James' original cover ... I especially like cover re-dos. It's good to see an author concerned for what's best for the book. Don't forget to connect with James on Twitter :D  Onto wrapping up the next book Until next time ...
