Okay, so we’ve mentioned some of this before, but because we absolutely want anyone and everyone to know, Jabberwocky Audio Theater will be on the actual broadcast airwaves starting Sunday, June 10th at 4pm Eastern Time.
If you’re in the DC metropolitan area, you just might be able to tune into WERA-LP 96.7 FM and hear us each Sunday. It’ll work best in Arlington, Virginia, but we’ve tested the signal around the area and it goes pretty far.
For those of you not in the region, the episodes will be available later in the week on our podcast feed.
The game plan is to start with season one of Rogue Tyger, take a nice, relaxing break destroying the planet with War of the Worlds, and finish up the year with the first installment of Quorum.
In between the runs of those shows, we’ll have a chance to give you some behind-the-scenes listens about the inspiration and making of the episodes as well as answer some of your questions (assuming you all have questions).
We look forward to you joining us on the journey. Adventure awaits!
One of our absolute favorite things about audio theater is finding and creating sound effects (actually, this can count for film production too). That’s one of the reasons we’re trying to incorporate plenty of sound effects into our live production of War of the Worldsthis coming Memorial Day weekend.
As each new episode rolls out, we’ll be adding new entries to the encyclopedia giving you more background on the peoples, worlds, and more that inhabit the Imperium… handy in case you’re ever sucked through a wormhole and find yourself there.
You can always use more sound effects and the Beeb has long been an excellent source of all sorts of delightful sounds. Our artistic director fondly remembers listening through a multi-LP set of sound effects whilst doing the sound design for a stage production many moons ago. Apparently, he was unsuccessful at slipping in a “drilling into skull” sound effect for a production of “Grease,” but Auntie Beeb had the sound ready for him just in case.
For fans, they may think of how he was the first to be cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, some of his many cartoon voices, or perhaps more recently, his times on the Radio Adventures of Doctor Floyd. Finally, also via a Mark Evanier post:
Even as we’re working on preparing for the performance of War of the Worlds at the end of May, we’re busy finishing up editing on the first season of Rogue Tyger. It’s exciting, and we’d like to say more, but we really should be getting back to the edit…
