I was searching online for archives of old sci-fi/horror/suspense radio plays, and found this page (http://www.themonsterclub.com/radiolibrary.htm). Appropriately enough, I'm currently listening to The Creaking Door production of "The Dummy," described thus: "A man is possessed by a ventriloquist dummy."

I love these things. Even the parts that have nothing to do with the show are great (i.e., the cigarette ads!) I've never listened to them much, but my enjoyment of the form goes back to third grade, when we made our own "spooky" radio play as a class project (I remember operating the sheet metal thunder machine.)

I know there are a few HPL adaptations in the AudioBox, but I'd love to find more, if anyone knows of some good resources. I've also found this sci-fi podcast show (http://otrscifi.btpodshow.com/), and the Internet Archive has a general slew of old time radio (http://www.archive.org/browse.php?field=/metadata/subject&mediatype=audio&collection=oldtimeradio) ("Dimension X" sounds good!)

An original radio play by TLO members would be pretty cool to hear some day, too. :D

This alone grants you the dubious title of "internet best friend"! Thanks!

I also agree about a TL radio show, via podcast with some images, but the best thing would be to have the man himself read his work while the rest of us make the background noise and the annoying mid term adds! Just imagine it: “Tired? Stressed? Paranoid? Come and pay us a visit at Dr. Locrian’s Asylum! Reserve your place today! (whisper: the real asylum may differ from the one in the picture)"

You're quite welcome, Karnos. It's good to know I can still make internet friends even after getting rid of myspace. :D

Well, I don't think I need any help finding more radio plays at the moment. I can now add the Old Time Radio Network (http://www.otr.net/) to my list of links. Already, I've got my work cut out for me.

Fortunately, I've got a trip planned for New Year's weekend, and I'll have 4+ hours of travel each way. Time to burn some CDs!
