    Join the Mysterious Old Radio Listening Society for an evening of hardboiled thrills, performed in the style of a vintage radio broadcast, including commercials, live music and sound effects. “Red Wind” from The Adventures of Philip Marlowe (1947): A murder in a cocktail lounge sends private eye Philip Marlowe in pursuit of a mysterious woman in a bolero jacket. The debut episode of The Adventures of Philip Marlowe was adapted from the 1938 short story by Raymond Chandler. “The Cable Car Case” from Candy Matson, Yukon 2-8209 (1949): When a shopping trip puts “gal detective” Candy Matson on the same cable car as a murder victim, our sharp-witted heroine finds herself in the crosshairs of a killer! A fan-favorite episode from the delightfully quirky San-Francisco radio series.

    “Shanan Custer, Joshua English Scrimshaw, Tim Uren, and Eric Webster have this down cold — not just the technical aspect, but the tone… Chilling as it might be to experience these tales (complete with old-school ads) alone in the dark, it’s much more fun to experience them with a crowd.” –City Pages
