THE MYSTERIOUS OLD RADIO LISTENING SOCIETY PRESENTS:
Future Tense!

The Society brings you a double-feature of prophetic science fiction stories; one tragic, one comic.

“The Veldt” from Dimension X (1951)
George and Lydia are concerned about their children. They’ve become obsessed with the “ nursery” – a virtual reality playroom designed and built by the Happy Home Corporation. A “precautionary” tale about technology and its unintended effect on children.

“A Logic Named Joe” from X Minus One (1955)
Logics are voice-activated AI, linked to a system of servers, allowing users to access data, entertainment, and commercial goods (sound familiar?). But when the Logics start giving out dangerous advice, the whole world goes mad. Can one computer repairman find the fault before it’s too late?

Friday, May 27
7:30 pm – Boss Stage

THE MYSTERIOUS OLD RADIO LISTENING SOCIETY PRESENTS:
Legends of the Old West

The Society saddles up for an evening of outlaws and gunslingers!

“Death of a Picture Hanger” from Crime Classics (1953) – A true tale of the Old West told with wry wit and a sense of tragedy.

“Never Pester Chester” from Gunsmoke (1952) – When Marshal Dillon’s friend is attacked by outlaws, the lawman must decide between two paths: justice or revenge.

THE MYSTERIOUS OLD RADIO LISTENING SOCIETY PRESENTS:
More Best of the Worst

The Society brings you two more frightening flops from the Golden Age of Radio; stories so delightfully absurd you have to hear them to believe them!

“Battle of the Magicians” from Lights Out (1934) – What do magicians, airplanes, and zombies have in common? Absolutely nothing. But logic is no defense against this madcap mystical mash-up from the mind of legendary radio writer Wyllis “Quiet Please” Cooper.

“The Cup of Gold” from Dark Fantasy (1942) – A sports reporter’s investigation into the death of a golf pro leads to a series of shocking revelations! Scott Bishop’s murder mystery turned Surrealist manifesto will keep you guessing (or at least scratching your head) until the bitter, inexplicable end.

The Mysterious Old Radio Listening Society presents classic plays from the Golden Age of Radio, performed in the style of a vintage radio broadcast, including commercials, music, and live sound effects. Along with the radio recreations, the team offers up introductory historical notes, witty banter, and nerdy trivia that brings the audience into their deep understanding and love of the radio genre. Follow their podcast at www.ghoulishdelights.com.
