This one only just made it on the air, but when you’ve got Superman on your side, things just get done. I always love doing these Superman shows.
It’s been far too long since Blasphuphmus Radio Theater Presents! was on the air, and with a lull in my broadcast schedule, I decided to finally bring listeners Part III. At times various circumstances seemed to be conspiring against this broadcast, but in the end it all came together, and without a moment to spare.
I need to make a correction in the footnotes from Part II: “The Yellow Mask” storyline is only three episodes long, rather than the six I claimed. One thing I’ve noticed regarding Old Time Radio is that documentation is often hard to find, so I’m slowly piecing all of this together as I go. This things happen, but fortunately this means that this episode concludes that story, and begins a new one, referred to by some fans as “The North Star Mining Company.” Again, to keep with tradition, I included more music by Raymond Scott to use as a backing track, which is always a good addition to any broadcast.
To keep with tradition I dug up some Old Time Commercials, and also managed to get a couple of KPSU DJs to make a pair of drops that were debuted during this broadcast. These episodes are always fun to do, but are somewhat time-consuming to throw together. I can’t say when I’ll be doing another one, but hopefully it’ll be soon.
See ya in seven!
