Yankee Spirit

Another fine hit from Colonial Radio Theater with this one set in the year 1868 as the ship arrives in Alexandria to collect artifacts found by an archeologist as he found a tomb of an Egyptian Prince.

Rival Ship Black Arrow was hired to acquire a golden sphinx from the artifacts which was part of the collection as they were forced to steal it and the adventure begins.

From weather, to combat, to an island queen and finally EGYPTIAN SPIRITS swept the ship from the Atlantic to the Pacific. This wonderful cast kept a great story easy to follow and the music score is top notch.

I have always enjoyed Colonial Radio Theater products and I really hope you will give this one a listen and enjoy as much as I have.

True Radio Drama

What did you love best about Yankee Clipper and the Adventure of the Golden Sphinx?

The audio dramatically recreates the feel of sailing a ship in that era.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I felt that the ending was drawn out a trifle too long - too much to and fro between the hero and villain. It could certainly have been a couple of episodes shorter. It was also very male dominated - there was one female character, who went the very predictable way of most pulp female characters.
