Final Rune ProductionsFred Greenhalgh, audio dramatist and host of Radio Drama Revival sez:

Finalrune’s new show! I’ll be releasing it as a free podcast in 5-7 min installments, with a paid download of $2.99 available which includes all episodes as a director’s cut and 2 bonus music tracks.

Fred will be posting a new episodes on Fridays throughout July. But if you’re into it, consider downloading the paid version |HERE|.

The program is genuinely funny, featuring a Philip J. Fry-like goober who hits a troll while driving home from a party he was found too uncool for. The troll, by the way, is more of the “grind your bones to make my bread”-type, rather than the cutesy, pink-haired desktop variety.

Later episodes straddle the line between humor and horror. Audiobook narrator William Dufris, playing the troll, is nearly unrecognizable. It sounds as if he’s been gargling battery acid! And the sound, as with all of the field recorded Final Rune shows, is absolutely wonderful.

The first free episode is available now, check it out…

Aural Noir: News

Today’s Wall Street Journal
, page A1 (the front page), has a well written article by Barry Newman on modern audio drama entitled: Return With Us to the Thrilling Days Of Yesteryear—Via the Internet. It is subtitled “Fred Greenhalgh’s Audio Dramas Hark Back To Radio Golden Era; It Sounds Like Snow” and thus you know the subject of the piece is Fred Greenhalgh (who we had as a guest on SFFaudio Podcast #039). It details Fred’s new project with the Mad Horse Theater Company, to create an audio drama production of the novel Open Season by Archer Mayor. You can read the entire article HERE. There’s also an accompanying video…

Here is the pilot episode of the Joe Gunther Open Season series |MP3|

And here’s a bit more video showcasing how it was made:
