Troy's greatest hits:
  • Orson Welles: The Ultimate Collection

    "Radio Classics from the Master"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Like it says in my bio, I looooooove the golden age of radio, and absolutely nobody defined that era quite like the great Orson Welles. The majority of these performances are from the Mercury Theater and the Campbell's Playhouse. The scripts are based on a variety of novels, historical figures, and such, and showcases what I consider to be not only Welles' finest hours, but also some of his forgotten treasures and even some of the performances that weren't quite up to snuff... which is still a lot of fun in most cases. From "The War of the Worlds" to "A Christmas Carol" to a portrayal of Abraham Lincoln and beyond, this is truly an eclectic mix, as one would expect from the Renaissance Man of Radio.

    Experienced listeners will already know what to expect, and odds are that if you're in this camp, you know a great deal of the material. Listeners who are new to these sorts of recordings may find that the age and recording / broadcast quality of some of these are, well, quite terrible by modern standards. Static and distortion are to be expected, but for those with ears to hear, these things may actually lend to the overall charm. Regardless of the quality of the recordings or of the scripts, the performances are a great cross-section not only of Welles, but of his fellow actors and actresses as well, Agnes Moorehead and Frank Readick to name but a couple. This is the stuff that began the empire of large scale entertainment, the stuff of legend.

  • The Legend of Sleepy Hollow: A Radio Dramatization

    "Return of the Classic!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Another quality performance by the Colonial Radio Players. Faithful to Washington Irving's original story, the first American fairy tale comes to life in such a way as to feel like the audio was stripped from an animated production. With original music and sound effects, this is a performance best listened to by the light of a single candle so as to add to the ambiance.

  • Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: A Radio Dramatization

    "A Faithful Retelling"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Having tried a couple of performances from The Colonial Radio Players, I'm hooked. It's like listening to golden age radio, only without the static and without the commercials. I love that sort of thing, and you can tell these actors have a lot of fun with the performances. Of the titles Audible has, most of their works are historical or adventure stories, but this one stood out as... well, it's Snow White. Fairy tales aren't exactly typical of the lineup available here, so why not try it out?

    The story as presented here is really close to the original Grimm version, with a few minor variations here and there, but nothing distracting or even overly noticeable. In the age where it seems like everyone's remaking these old stories on TV or film, it's refreshing to have a more faithful version of the classic for modern ears.

  • Captain Blood: A Radio Dramatization

    "Swashbuckling Radio for Modern Listeners"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I'm developing a healthy respect for the Colonial Radio Theatre players. Rafael Sabatini's works are already amongst my favorites just because they're swashbuckling fun, and I'm a sucker for that. I'm also a sucker for a quality full-cast radio drama, and these actors bring the melodrama up to full. It actually feels a lot like they stripped the audio track from an Errol Flynn movie. I'd love to hear this group do a version of Scaramouche.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Hearing the reports from 50 years ago, you felt like you were right there living it. It affects you as though you are hearing the events unfold live even though you know the history. I've read numerous accounts of this time in history, but hearing it as it unfolded 50 years ago gave me a completely different perspective on it. This is totally worth a listen! I'm not even a history buff and am looking forward to listening to it again.
