Radio Drama Revival: The Most Dangerous Game AUDIO DRAMA

Aural Noir: Online Audio

Radio Drama RevivalCOOL! Fred Greenhalgh, of Radio Drama Revival, was inspired by my post called “The Most Dangerous Meme” to re-adapt Richard Connell’s short story, The Most Dangerous Game, as a new audio drama! Sez Fred:

“Closing the month of September is a production I’m thrilled to share with you. It’s the first work out of a three-part collaboration of FinalRune Productions and the Mad Horse Theater Company. The project took classic old time radio plays and brought them to life with modern day field recording, and what fun it was!

The play today is The Most Dangerous Game, by Richard Connell, which was broadcast originally on Escape! and Suspense.”

Recording The Most Dangerous Game

As you can see by the pic above, a “modern day field recording” sound is really what this is. I fell deeply in love with this style of audio drama after listening to Roger Gregg’s Infidel. Have a listen!
