The Great Detective Episode opens with a bunch of people crammed into a small office late at night, when there is a knock at the door and a beautiful dame walks in with makeup ruined by tears …

Tonight, we re-live the era when radio was the ultimate theatre of the mind: the 1950s. Thanks to Preachrs Podcast Online and On Stage, Adelaide is about to have a return season of Great Detectives Of Old Time Radio Live at Tandanya until October 9.

We discuss

  • The appeal of radio plays
  • The art of learning accents
  • How radio plays differ from books and movies
  • How modern audiences adapt to this entertainment

Tonight, we re-live the era when radio was the ultimate theatre of the mind: the 1950s. Thanks to Preachrs Podcast Online and On Stage, Adelaide is about to have a 15-night season of Great Detectives Of Old Time Radio Live at Tandanya until October 9. And our opportunity to step back in time all happened because of the dynamic dick at the centre of operations, Benjamin Maio MacKay who called me late one night and said he was in trouble and needed someone he could trust to help him hunt down a missing audience …

Our guests with Benjamin are Eden Trebilco, Julia Sciacca, and Jennifer Barry.
