Villains on Parade features an Evil Sorceress, bumbling henchmen, the Annual Storming of the Castle, the Plunderers Day Parade, the Lost Orc Commentaries, and other extreme silliness. The Bad Guys have their say, the Pros take the stage and bring down the castle. Featuring Chuck McCann and Wally Wingert. It's all from the Mark Time Radio Show 2010 and the Great Northern Audio Theatre.
High Moon has a young punk challenging the old timer to a duel - magic at 50 meters. It's not the first time he's seen this kind of ambitious spell-slinger, and he knows he has a destiny out on the top of that high hill. Another from the Great Northern Audio Theatre.

Voices in the Wind sends us this delightful ditty from Canada. Meg and her mom head to Detroit for some cross-border shopping and a Tigers game. An odd encounter on the Windsor waterfront leads them into a wild night of time-travel, rum-smuggling, a near drowning, and customs officials hungry for bribes. Written by Dave Carley, one of Canada's leading Playwrights and Radio Dramatists.
Plus short subjects. First it's EABGOSFA, by Paddy Leitsch. I could tell you what it means, but where's the surprise in that? And then All the Star Trek Shows in One, by Jim Samuels.

Recorded live over the July 4th weekend. Cyber Bob is the consummate hacker. Part of his credo is "Never use two punch cards when one will do." Bob is hired to find the Digital Nymph, the Goddess of Cyberspace, by a rich and successful Dot Com honcho who secretly wants to own her. Bob gathers his quest team to play computer games all across the digital landscape, and of course, saves the goddess and the day.
It's the 17th Mark Time Radio Show, written by Brian Price and Jerry Stearns, and featuring David Ossman of the Firesign Theatre, and a host of wonderful local voice actors.
Plus the matinee short subject, A Day at the Library.

Col. Frank Erhardt and the cast. This was the pilot for a 1958 radio series proposed for NBC radio. It was aimed not just at kids, but at the whole family, so there's something for adults, too.
It's a celebration of the Year of Our Moonlanding 45, and includes more about movies about outer space, in an interview with George Tirebiter, who produced plenty of bad old sci-fi movies back in the 50s at Paranoid Pictures. Forgettable films like Nomads from Neptune. This is George talking about them as part of Neptune All Night, with

Thanks to David O'Sullivan, of KFAI's Malarkey - Radio with an Irish Accent (Monday's at 7:30 PM), for sitting in while Jerry takes a little time off.

A Mark Time Show Time superhero story with NPR overtones, from the Great Northern Audio's Mark Time Radio Show scripts redone by the equally great Decoder Ring Theatre, of Canada.
And another pair of shorts with David O'Sullivan sitting in 'em. (That didn't come out right.)
Coming to a Radio near you!
The Little City In Space
This show was a mainstay on KFAI from very early in its existence in 1978. Highly inventive and well-produced, it lasted many years. In 1999 Stu Mathews, Peter Stenshoel and Jerry Modjeski used a grant to produce a 13-week syndicated series for public radio. Sound Affects is proud to bring you that entire series over the next year. On the Last Sunday of each month we'll bring you one of those marvelous Little City In Space shows, starting in November 2013.
Thanks to Peter Stenshoel for the shows, and to Jerry Modjeski for helping to engineer the opportunity. See more about Jerry Modjeski's several shows on KFAI at his website, ScorchedEar.com. Lots of Little City in Space material is available at Archive.org.
Coming in November we are pleased to take you all back to the original Ruby, The Adventures of a Galactic Gumshoe, from ZBS. It's groundbreaking audio theater from 1980, but this version has been updated with additional music and effects that weren't possible when it was made. This is one of those series to which all later shows are compared. It's that good. Updated by Tim Clark.
