It's New York verses Boston! We present a short story by Damon Runyon, entitled A Piece of Pie, about an eating contest, that also becomes a battle of the sexes! Miss Violet Strumberger sits down across the dining table to uphold the honor of the Big Apple, and a $10,000 bet, against Bean Town's champion eater Joel Duffel. She is only doing this because Nicely Nicely Jones, whom many up and down Broadway recognize as one of the greatest eaters in history, is now engaged to be married to her best friend, Miss Hilda Slocum.
Tonight we bring you LOST AND FOUND, a rather strange audio drama about.. well.. being lost, mostly. Various people find themselves lost in in a strange city.. but what does it mean to be lost? This is followed by a plunderphonic collage from various movies.
Long before there were role playing video games there were model railroads. Tonight's story, 'Mrs Union Station', by Douglas Welch, is about how a young couple's marrage is about to be destroyed by the alure of railroads and model trains.
This month Fortunato reads 'Mrs Union Station' by Seattle writer, Douglas Welch. Newly wed Mrs Applegate finds that her husband's passion for trains and railroading is destroying their marriage. She didn't mind that their honeymoon was spent riding every train line between Chicago and New York City and then, every subway in Manhattan! But he now spents most of his time with his friends, and their extensive model railroad set up, than with her! Also 'The Railway Guide' by Christopher Morley gives us a nostalgic look at the many railroads that criss crossed the country; read by Golden Whiskey.
Fortunato presents a classic nautical horror story by William Hope Hodgson. After surviving a tremendous storm at sea, a ship is blown into the endless conglomerate of weeds know as the Sargasso Sea. Something dangerous lurks unseen in the trackless wilderness of weeds. And begins to pick off the crew one by one in the moonless night.
