The Clouds (Νεφέλαι / Nephelai) is a comedy written by the celebrated playwright Aristophanes lampooning intellectual fashions in classical Athens.

It was revised between 420-417 BC and thereafter it was circulated in manuscript form. No copy of the original production survives, and scholarly analysis indicates that the revised...

6 LP boxed set from Longines Symphonette in the late 60's or early 70's (no date on package) hosted by Jack Benny and Frank Knight, this material focuses mainly on the 30's and 40's. All tracks have been processed with noise reduction software for surface noise and clicks & pops. Update (2012-05-03): in response to several complaints about the difficulty of assembling 117 files, I have re-uploaded the album as twelve complete sides. Nothing has been changed other than that.

The Haunting Hour is a work-in-progress collection within the holdings of many serious Radio Collectors. From the meager available productions currently in circulation it's clear that the series was popular for its time, at the very least. With a known run of at least 52 unique scripts and more doubtful further 39 to 52 scripts, it would appear that the series was in demand for at least four years--in and out of syndication. Given the high quality of NBC Network voice talent in the circulating...

Space Patrol was a highly successful franchise, packaged as a retro, juvenile serial featuring the adventures of the steely-jawed redoubtable Commander Buzz Corry and his wet-behind-the-ears sidekick Cadet Happy as they combat various 30th-century baddies across the Solar System and beyond. Originally a television series, the same actors reprised their roles for the radio version, which ran concurrently with the TV show from the fall of 1950 to the spring of 1955.

This recording uses primitive instruments to support the listener in making shamanic journeys. The berimbau and rain stick provide sonic driving for the journey as an alternative to drumming. The berimbau is a gourd-resonated, trance droning musical bow of African origin. The rain stick is a percussion instrument that originated in Chile. Made from a dried cactus branch, it produces the sound of gentle rain. The rain stick produces high frequencies that complement the low frequency droning,...

Full audiobook of Ulysses by James Joyce, with full cast.  The best version available. Ulysses is a modernist novel by Irish writer James Joyce. It was first serialised in parts in the American journal The Little Review from March 1918 to December 1920, and then published in its entirety by Sylvia Beach in February 1922, in Paris. It is considered to be one of the most important works of modernist literature, and has been called "a demonstration and summation of the entire movement"....

This unique recording uses primitive instruments to support the listener in making shamanic journeys. The bullroarer and rattle provide sonic driving for the journey as an alternative to drumming. The bullroarer is a flat elliptical shaped piece of wood attached to a cord that that produces a whirring trance inducing drone when whirled through the air. The rattle produces high frequencies that complement the low frequency droning, thereby boosting the total sonic effect. The journey ends with a...

A collection of 14 multicultural and original songs and chants sung by Michael Drake. Singing and drumming are extremely powerful tools for restoring the vibrational integrity of body, mind, and spirit. When coupled together, they move us to a level of awareness beyond form, a place where we discover our own divinity. Each song and chant on this recording has a specific purpose for invoking or paying homage to spirit beings and deities. Each one creates a vibratory resonance that allows these...
