This is a pretty interesting show--- it brings you back in time to those days when radio narratives were popular, and you can understand why. It's a retro experience that really stimulates your imagination.

Description

Imagine “Star Wars” meets “Raiders of the Lost Ark” meets “Flash Gordon,” with a little bit of “The Incredibles” thrown in for good measure. You’re part of the radio studio audience. There are five mics and music stands onstage, as well as tables littered with every household gadget imaginable, from a bucket of mud to a kazoo to a vacuum cleaner.

The year is 1933. Ben Wilcott has traveled back in time from 2095 to warn the world of an impending alien invasion. Ben solicits the help of Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Molly Sloan and her assistant, Timmy Mendez. Together they travel across Europe, and ultimately to another galaxy to help save the world from impending doom. Along the way they battle the sinister mesmerist Mysterion, befriend the inhabitants of a Robot Planet, and finally, confront the hideous sludge monsters from the planet Zygon.
