The Zero Hour - Double Date To Destiny (06-13-74)  


Double Date To Destiny (Aired June 13, 1974)
The Zero Hour (aka Hollywood Radio Theater) was a 1973-74 radio drama anthology series hosted by Rod Serling.With tales of mystery, adventure and suspense, the program aired in stereo for two seasons. Some of the scripts were written by Serling. Originally placed into syndication on Septermber 3, 1973, the series was picked up by the Mutual Broadcasting System in December of that year. The original format featured five-part dramas broadcast Monday through Friday with the story coming to a conclusion on Friday. Including commercials, each part was approximately 30 minutes long. Mutual affiliates could broadcast the series in any time slot that they wished. In 1974, still airing five days a week, the program changed to a full story in a single 30-minute installment with the same actor starring throughout the week in all five programs. That format was employed from late April 1974 to the end of the series on July 26, 1974. Producer J.M. Kholos was a Los Angeles advertising man who acquired the rights to suspense novels, including Tony Hillerman's The Blessing Way, for radio adaptations. The opening theme music was by Ferrante & Teicher and Don Hill produced the series.

It's A Crime Mr. Collins - The Chrome Yellow Death (1956)  


Chrome Yellow Death (1956) *The Exact Date Is Unknown.
It's a Crime, Mr. Collins was a half-hour mystery/adventure radio program broadcast weekly from August, 1956 to February, 1957 by Mutual Broadcasting System in the United States that was a "flagrant rip-off of The Adventures of the Abbotts in which only the names had been changed." San Francisco private detective Greg Collins was played by Mandel Kramer (who had previously been heard as Lieutenant Tragg in the radio version of Perry Mason) and his wife, Gail Collins, was played by namesake Gail Collins. Each week, Gail Collins, "the gumshoe's gorgeous spouse -- with green-eyed predilections emerging as curvaceous damsels in distress frequently petitioned her husband -- shared his investigative exploits with her Uncle Jack and thereby with the listeners at home." THIS EPISODE: 1956. Mutual network origination, syndicated. "The Chrome Yellow Death". Commercials added locally. Mr. and Mrs. Collins are in tropical Argentina, where they find death by "bolas" and "marijuana" cigarettes. The date is approximate. Mandel Kramer, Gail Collins, Richard Denning. 28:33.

ABC Mystery Time - My Adventure In Norfork (1957)  


My Adventure In Norfork (1957) *The Exact Date Is Unknown,
ABC Mystery Time was hosted by Don Dowd and starred Sir Laurence Olivier. Great special effects will grab your attention, accented by creepy organ rips.

Also known as Mystery Time and Mystery Time Classics, this one is sure to excite and mystify. Unfortunately this is an old time radio show with few surviving episodes in existence. THIS EPISODE: 1957. ABC network. "My Adventure In Norfolk". The program is also known as, "Mystery Time Classics" and "Masters Of Mystery." The date is approximate. Ralph Richardson, A. J. Allen (writer), Don Dowd (host). 24:00. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

"Existing Light is Alright"- Photo Podcast 575  

This is The Digital Story Podcast #575, March 14, 2017. Today's theme is "Existing Light is Alright." I'm Derrick Story.

Opening Monologue

Having departed to Southern California on a minute's notice last week, I grabbed my daily shoulder bag and headed out the door. It contained the gear I carry on a daily basis to the office, nothing more, nothing less. The only flash I had was the popup on the Pentax KP. And as it turned out, I never used it. So capturing life by existing light is the top story for today's show.

Digital Photography Podcast 575

Existing Light is Alright

What are the components and techniques required for effective existing light photography? Here's a look at my list.

Prime lenses (or Pro zooms) - Even with great high ISO performance, we still need wide apertures. Effective Auto ISO - For me, existing light photography isn't just setting the ISO to 1600 and shooting everything. I depend a lot on smart Auto ISO that increases sensor sensitivity only as needed, and has a limit at the top end that I can live with. Smart Metering - One of the things that I noticed when testing the Pentax KP was that its evaluative metering was very smart. If there was a window in the frame, it didn't underexpose the rest of the scene as a result. Learning how you camera meters, and adjusting accordingly, is very important. RAW+Jpeg - If I do the first three things right, my Jpegs should be pretty good. But I do want that RAW safety net for situations where I need to recover detail in the shadows or highlights. The Blessed Tripod - Long exposures, HDR, and extended depth of field work better with camera support. Instead of jacking the ISO up to 128,000, You can keep it below a thousand and get tack sharp results with a tripod. Hitting the Road with the MeFOTO Roadtrip Air

This week's three-legged adventure with the MeFOTO Roadtrip Air focuses on a giant family group shot, that was unplanned.

As I mentioned at the top of the podcast, I didn't carry a lot of gear on my journey down south. I had my everyday bag and the MeFOTO Roadtrip Air. At my sister's I learned that we were pulling together a family gathering. There were people there that I hadn't seen in years. And after about an hour, I knew we needed a group shot for the history books. And that's when my MeFOTO became invaluable.

Just to give you a bit of background about this super nimble tripod, it's distinguishing features include:

Super Fast Setup with the new HyperLock Leg System. Setup is as easy as 1,2,3: 1 - Hold tripod leg and twist counterclockwise until it stops (4 clicks), 2 - Pull the leg to the desired length, 3 -Twist leg clockwise until it stops. (How easy is that?) Perfect for Selfies - removable telescoping center column converts to a Selfie Stick with included smartphone holder and Bluetooth remote! Ultra lightweight - 30 percent lighter than classic MeFOTO models Available in Backpacker, RoadTrip, GlobeTrotter models and 7 colors.

If you want to learn more about the MeFOTO line of tripods, look for the colorful tile on all the pages of the thedigitalstory.com. And if you decide that you want one for yourself, use coupon code THEDIGITALSTORY to save 10 percent and receive free shipping.

First Impressions of the Pentax KP DSLR

I brought three cameras on the road trip down south: Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II, Pentax ZX-5n SLR, and Pentax KP DSLR. I used all three for various situations, but I'm going to focus on the KP for this segment.

Here are the features and qualities that really stand out for me:

Compact for a 24MP DSLR. With the 21mm Pentax prime lens mounted, the KP fits in my workbag along side my mirrorless cameras. Sensor-based image stabilization. Cool lenses. Super intelligent features, including choice of DNG or PEF for RAW files. Customizable grips (standard) and buttons. Up and down articulated LCD. Friendly menu system. Distinctive look that you will either love or hate. Beautiful color rendition. Solid WiFi. Excellent high ISO performance.

As far as nits, I do have a couple. I do think the battery should be a bit bigger and/or last longer. Pentax still uses an old fashioned battery charger that requires a cord.

Overall, I really dig this camera and its cool limited edition lenses.

What does that mean to you when you hear/feel nothing coming? What are you tips for job search? How do you make your iced tea? Do you put anything in there other than the ice cubes? What is your best advice for expanding my reach in terms of content? What is the most appropriate way to network and ask if I can guest post for someone else's blog or get in their podcast Have you ever read Jill Bolte Taylor? (On consciousness & R|L brain).

Is it possible to follow our intuition in every moment while having this human experience? How did you go about creating diverse content, without it feeling forced or losing its authenticity? How do you help someone, family member or good friend, who's in a negative pattern or downward spiral but doesn't seem to want help? What are some of the ways you combat loneliness on the road? What tips do you have for finding alignment again when you're feeling stressed? Is your full name Jess or Jessica? What is your middle name?

The CBS Radio Mystery Theater - The Slick And The Dead (01-23-76)  


The Slick And The Dead (Aired January 23, 1976)
The CBS Radio Mystery Theater (or CBSRMT) was an ambitious and sustained attempt to revive the great drama of old-time radio in the 1970s. Created by Himan Brown (who had by then become a radio legend due to his work on Inner Sanctum Mysteries and other shows dating back to the 1930s), and aired on affiliate stations across the CBS Radio network, the series began its long run on January 6, 1974. The final episode ran on December 31, 1982. The show was broadcast nightly and ran for one hour, including commercials. Typically, a week consisted of three to four new episodes, with the remainder of the week filled out with reruns. There were a total of 1399 original episodes broadcast. The total number of broadcasts, including reruns, was 2969. The late E.G. Marshall hosted the program every year but the final one, when actress Tammy Grimes took over. Each episode began with the ominous sound of a creaking door, slowly opening to invite listeners in for the evening's adventure. At the end of each show, the door would swing shut, with Marshall signing off, "Until next time, pleasant...dreams?" THIS EPISODE: January 23, 1976. Program #420. CBS network. "The Slick and The Dead". Sponsored by: True Value Hardware, Luden's Cough Drops, Buick, Contac. E. G. Marshall (host), Ian Martin (writer), Russell Horton, Rosemary Rice, Mandel Kramer, Josephine Premice, Earl Hammond. 45:28. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
