Killer Serials #4 – Hop Harrigan: Ghostly Avengers, Part One (11/23/19)

2:06:41 – Join Dave in Kentucky for the first part of a new three-part Hop Harrigan adventure, which is surprisingly NSFW. Dave’s curmudgeonly commentary is also somewhat NSFW, but then Dave is no more unsafe for work than work is unsafe for Dave, so no harm, no foul.

Killer Serials #3 – Hop Harrigan: Vanishing Men, Part Three (11/13/19)

1:41:58 – The action really picks up speed as this juvenile aviation serial finally gets off the ground! Be in on the denouement as Hop brings in the suspects for a final showdown, and find out if you too were smarter than a fifth grader! Does the plot hang together, or do all the show’s writers need to hang separately?

Killer Serials #2 – Hop Harrigan: Vanishing Men, Part Two (11/3/19)

1:47:19 – Join Hop, Tank, Gail Nolan, Bill King and Dave in Kentucky for the “Middle Six” chapters of the Hop Harrigan adventure “The Mystery of the Vanishing Men.” Dave has solved the “Mystery of the Missing Millions,” but is still left wondering why this aviation serial has such trouble getting off the ground!  There’s plenty of interesting propaganda assuring us that “America Needs Flyers,” though, so “Don’t Forget to Listen!”

The Closet Excavationist #8 – Monkey Business (8/1/19)

56:43 – Do the dead listen to The Overnightscape?  Why else would Frank Edward Nora be mentioned in a reading by Dave and Lisa’s psychic medium?  Was Dave in Kentucky’s apron-string theory confirmed or denied? Did Dave’s grandpa object in principle to rural electrification, farm planning, crop allotments and the like, or was he simply an inveterate procrastinator? Find out the answer to some of these questions (perhaps) on this episode of The Closet Excavationist.

Into the Time Warp #8 – July Heat (7/26/19)

1:22:11 – Dave in Kentucky proudly presents two high-quality episodes of Broadway is My Beat from July, 1951.  Larry Thor stars as Lieutenant Danny Clover, a New York plainclothes detective with both a flair for the poetic and an impatient desire to cut to the chase.  The heat is on in more ways than one in this gritty police procedural.  Feel the heat!
