The Time Machine

Wednesday, November 29th, 2006

This week’s “Living Book for the Ears”…

H. G. Wells’ “The Time Machine”, as originally broadcast on the program “Favorite Story” back in 1949!

This is a fine half hour dramatization of Wells’ short novel, with its fascinating theory of time travel, exciting adventure, and cockeyed view of the “future” all intact. Enjoy!

Missing Thanksgiving Program Found!

Wednesday, November 15th, 2006

A couple of attentive customers pointed out to us that the Armed Forces Thanksgiving Program from 1944 (which features a delightful Baby Snooks Thanksgiving episode) did not make it onto our CD collection. We missed that one somehow when compiling the CD, so our apologies for that oversight.

Anyway, here is a link to this delightful program, featuring some great Americana & Thanksgiving music, along with the one and only Baby Snooks!

 RIGHT CLICK HERE and “save target” to your computer!

We’re putting this here on our blog as a special treat to those of you who are actually READING this blog. We appreciate it! (If anyone can come up with some tips or ideas on how to get more folks to take a look at this side of our website, I’m all ears.)

Holiday Stories Update

Tuesday, November 14th, 2006

Well, this afternoon we were moving things around here in our world-wide headquarters (aka - the storage building/office in the woods) and to our delight, we found one more box of 25 of our HOLIDAY STORIES collections, hiding underneath Mr. Shakespeare!

I know a few people emailed us that they missed out on this, so “heads up”… the ordering page is back online, at least until these are gone. I don’t see any more boxes lurking under anything around here, so this really is the last chance to pick one of these up this season.

Moby Dick

Wednesday, November 1st, 2006
Hi folks,

Here we are with this week's
great "Living Book for the Ears" program!

This week, we set sail on an ill-fated voyage
aboard the whaling ship Pequod in search of
the fabled white whale, MOBY DICK!

This is an excellent, exciting
version of Melville's classic novel.
This Captain Ahab just creeps me out! lol
I think we sent out a different
version of this story a couple years ago, but
believe me, you'll definitely want to hear this one!
It is great!

Here's the link to this week's program:

Enjoy!
