We’ve done several recreations of classic Golden Age of Radio episodes. These shows — direct re-creations of shows that were originally broadcast in the heyday of radio drama — were PMRP’s mainstay in its early years, and have influenced and inspired many of our later shows with original material (such as the “War of the Worlds” segment in The Big Broadcast of 1938, which was a retelling of some of the events of Orson Welles’ famous broadcast in a new setting, but tried to capture some of the spirit of the original broadcast.

PMRP is proud to present three tales of Suspense and Terror, resurrected from the airwaves of the long dead past.

First will be the dread countdown of Suspense’s “Three O’Clock,” based on the original short story by Cornell Woollrich. Join us as a murderer’s plot goes horribly awry while he is forced to watch… and wait.

Tomes of Terror 3

There’s one due date you can never escape! In October 2008 we presented Tomes of Terror 3, featuring our recreations of a Hallowe’en episode of The Baby Snooks Show and “The Tell-Tale Heart” as adapted for Nightfall and “Reynardine”, an original adaptation of Athan Y. Chilton's short story “The Ballad of Reynardine”.

First Night 2009

For Boston’s First Night 2009 festivities, the Post Meridian Radio Players were invited to present radio drama performed the way it was back in the 1930's, 40's & 50's.  Actors at microphones, live sound effects artists, and recorded audio effects transported the audience from the cockpit of a heroic Do-Gooder's futuristic spaceship in “Countdown to Chaos” to the panic-stricken streets of a city doomed by science gone wrong in “Chicken Heart”!
