Sure, we've all heard the classic old time radio dramas, but what about more recent classics, like the wonderful Jack Flanders series from ZBS Media? And what is being produced today? Bonus points if it's broadcast free online.

Spot on with the Seeing Ear Theater link; that was the first site I thought of when I saw this post. Don't miss the excellent adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Murder Mysteries.

I used to listen to Joe Frank in the middle of the night coming from some station in Toronto.

Oh. A quicker clicker. Anyway, there are some shows on that last link if anyone wants to try him.

Has anyone else listened to the Jack Flanders stuff (which started coming out in the 70s with the "Fourth Tower of Inverness" series)? I'm wondering if there's anything else remotely like it out there.

I think doing radio shows like this has been very limited for the last 40 years or so, given the difficulty of finding a broadcast audience. But now, anyone can produce a show on a limited budget and stream it out across the internet to the world. Are there any signs that we are on the verge of an explosion of this kind of entertainment? Have any of you ever wanted to dabble in this kind of programming?

Mouth Bandits. Sure I've had passing thoughts about dabbling.
