Radio Mystery Theater...

This is probably going to be my most self-serving entry ever...

(I said "self serve", not "soft serve"!)

When I was a kid, I used to always listen to the Radio Mystery Theater on the radio. Every weeknight at 9pm, my brother and I would tune in our little, portable radio into the static-y station and remain still and silent so as not to miss a word.

Once a teenager, and old enough to want to write something other than my normal (and often stupid) jokes, I recorded an episode and (no, I don't tell you this proudly) transcribed it to claim it as my own. Would have worked, too, if all that transcribing wasn't so hard! I never finished it. Halfway through, I decided that my own story would probably not feel so hollow. To this day, though, I remember that episode and I remember the Radio Mystery Theater.

Just thought I'd share it with you. Anyone else ever listen to this or any other radio shows they still remember? (Who'll be the first to bring up Dr. D???)
