Listening Post Schedule:

The latest Free Speech Radio News headlines will start the show.  I read some local news and play some audio clips for about 20 minutes.

The January 2013 Taxcast from Tackle Tax Havens is now available, search the link for very dynamic threads to tracking down those greedy fiends worldwide, then tell your friends.

 We hope you were surprised with last night's show!

To keep it going, the first audio dispatch for 2013 from the Aboriginal Press News Service Public Radio, "Fourth World Radyo" released Jan. 15, 2013.

Then a grab bag selection from the more than 1300 incredible episodes of the CBS Radio Mystery Theater that began in 1974 and produced by radio drama legend Hyman Brown.

The CBS Radio Mystery indeed heralded the revival of the Golden Age of Radio.  With the fine actor E. G. Marshall as the host, the series brought back those great days of mystery, suspense, drama and a touch of history. At first it aired daily, a monumental task when you consider this. But after some six years it went to five times a week. Mr. Marshall hosted the series until its final year when Tammy Grimes took over the chore on Feb 1, 1982. For the most part long-time radio personalities were heard with a smattering of TV and movie actors doing their part. Almost all of the story lines were newly written and produced, but there were some adaptions based on novels by Edgar Allan Poe, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Charles Dickens, Victor Hugo, O. Henry, Nathaniel Hawthorne to name a few. The end of the series came quite quickly in early December 1982 with re-runs filling in the balance of the year.

Short selections read by volunteers from the Libris Vox web site will also be heard.
