A very different kind of detective story, using the tropes and memes of audio drama as the thread of the plot.

The Stan Freberg Show
Two episodes from Freberg's radio show from 1957. It is considered a milestone in radio, covering 15 episodes, but it never had a sponsor. Freberg turned down several partial sponsors, and two cigarette companies offering full sponsorship.
The first show in the series brings us Tuned Sheep, and a biting satire, Incident at Los Varoces, about two feuding Las Vegas Hotels. It was recorded and sent to the network, whose censors ordered a rewrite. It was rapidly rerecorded for broadcast the next day. What we have here is the original recording, not the rewrite.
The fourth series show features guest star Hans Conreid, along with his regulars, Daws Butler, Peter Leeds and June Foray.

In The Embers, Part 1
New from the Great Northern Audio Theatre.
A song, a pressed flower, and the sound of two girl’s voices recovered from a burned wooden beam by using a laser to read its charred surface like the grooves of an old 78rpm record. These are the clues that archaeologist, Digger Morgan, discovers while working on a routine Maryland plantation dig. Who were the girls? When was the fire? The answers all lead to 1920s jazz pioneer, Kit Jeffers, whose voice mysteriously appears on Digger’s computer, and whose existence remains haunted by a singular tragic event.
