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…

Radio Drama RevivalFrederick Greenhalgh of Radio Drama Revival (and FinalRune) writes in to say…

“Saw that you honored 19 Nocturne Boulevard with an announcement of their win of the Gold Mark Time, I just wanted to add that my piece (which you reviewed earlier this year) Waiting For A Window has won the Gold Ogle!”

Congrats Fred! For those who haven’t heard it I described Waiting For A Window as “a richly atmospheric and rather nautical version of Waiting For Godot. Or perhaps as a sailor’s version of The Prisoner. But, it’s not so much scary as it is comforting. A tall tale of the sea and a fine sounding audio drama.”

The Ogle Award, celebrates the best Fantasy/Horror audio production of the year. The actual trophy will be handed out on July 2nd 2009 at the annual Mark Time Awards ceremony at Convergence-Con 2009.

This FinalRune Productions is an original story of a man waylaid on his way somewhere else, Waiting for a Window stars Bill Dufris (William Dufris), Joe Duley, Charly Duley, Ed Patterson and Philip Hobby. And it features original music by Barb Truex.

There’s a low quality version here…
