Publisher's Summary

As heard on Sirius XM Radio and NPR stations!
OTR fans rejoice! Tired of listening to the same shows? Here are two NEW OTR stories, produced with wonderful sound effects and music by veteran radio-theater producer Joe Bevilacqua and performed by Liquid Comedy: Joe Bevilacqua, Lorie Kellogg, Kenny Savoy, and Jim Folly, with Aundrae Dair, and music by Paul Salomone (piano) and Joan Bierschenk (bagpipes).
This hour of comedy was recorded before a live audience at SUNY Dutchess in Poughkeepsie, New York, on March 20, 2007.
Includes: Fibber McGee and Molly:"The House of Wax". It's 1953 and Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve makes a less than triumphant return to Wistful Vista to introduce Vincent Price at the Wistful Vista Bijou premiere of the 3-D movie The House of Wax. Meanwhile, Fibber tries to save five cents by making his own 3D glasses. Teeny, Mr. Oldtimer, Wally Wimple, Mrs. Uppington, Harlow Wilcox, and even Fibber's closet... are all here in this brand-new "Fibber" tale!
Duffy's Tavern: "If We All Talked Like Allen Jenkins". Archie, Finnegan, Eddie, Miss Duffy and all the gang are back "where the elite meet to eat" in this first new Duffy's Tavern outing since 1952. Archie tries to lure the Shriner's Convention to the tavern with promises of big stars he can't deliver, not knowing the real Warner Brothers movie actors Edward G. Robinson and Allen Jenkins are hiding in the kitchen.

What the Critics Say

"Are you a fan of old-time radio? Do you wish they were still making those wonderful programs so you wouldn’t have to keep listening to the same old episodes again and again? Do you poop out at parties? Do you wish I would stop asking so many questions? Well wish no more o traveler of the airwaves. These full cast audio productions. Don’t worry if you aren’t familiar with these names, their voice characterizations are as good as any you’ll hear. And the acting and sound effects are of the highest quality. Give this a try, you won’t be disappointed." (Steven Brandt, audiobook-heaven.com)
