Progress Continues

After a few days of dealing with a new phone line being put in, which also caused my DSL to be turned off in the process, I am FINALLY back to work here! We have 8 completed episodes for "Powder River - season 3" in the can, all done and ready to air; two more in editing, and we begin recording again July 10th, which means I need to start writing the scripts! We have a VERY special guest star coming on the show for two episodes, which I'll announce as the date gets closer!

"Dandelion Wine" continues in post production and is sounding good.

I'm off to Minneapolis July 7-9 for the Mark Time Awards bash at the Sheraton, and looking forward to meeting people from the Audio Drama world whom I've known of for years. Also, I think I'll be meeting Dean Spratt who has played seasons one and two of "Powder River" on his weekly Satellite show on the WOKIE Network - so it should be a fun three days.

Long weekend ahead of serious editing, making up for lost time, and doing an interview with John Lovering in Portsmouth NH about our 1999 production "Little Big Horn" which he is running on his show next week. That should be fun. I'm not the worlds be subject for an interview, but I'm getting the hang of it.

The upcoming June 28th release of "Captain Blood" is VERY exciting. It's quite a feeling seeing pre-sale blurbs for it in Borders and Barnes and Nobel after a freezing cold winter of recording and editing. What a whirl wind production that was.

After leaving "My Space" because I couldn't deal with the nuts and spam, the AUDIO ADDICT suggested I try this little place! I thought it would nice to have a site to update our progress and productions with The Colonial Radio Theatre on the Air, which is now in it's 11th year!

Well, another day of recording. Did some line punch ins for "Powder River" Episode 03-09 and 03-10. Also, editing continues on "Dandelion Wine" for Ray Bradbury. We have 2 weeks to finish the project. So far, I'm not worried. All is going well with this one.

July will be the last BIG busy month of the year, and I can't wait till it's over. I am determined to have a calm and easy August. After "Dandelion Wine" finishes, I need to write and record 10 more episodes for "Powder River." We are recording EVERY Monday night in July (a first) and now's the time to take bets on whether or not I finish the scripts. We need them for XM, so they GOTTA get done soon. The Powder River series is our most popular show on XM. Sooo, 20 new episodes on the way, and I plan on 20 more starting in October.

What else - Oh! New CD Releases!!

"Captain Blood" will be released July 28th on Six CD's, and also on cassette tapes and mp3! I don't know all the outlets yet, but I've seen it at B&N online, as well as Wal-Mart online and even places in Germany and Japan!

"Legend of Sleepy Hollow" will be released on CD October 1st. It will be in Barnes and Nobel, Borders, Amazon, and a bunch of other places.

"Dandelion Wine" should be out for Christmas.

Chris Snyder is doing a FANTASTIC job as our new producer on "Powder River." He has already turned in 2 episodes and a third on the way!

Thats all for now,
