Urgh bleah. Gotta love insomnia.
I'm freezing here in Indianapolis. It's too cold to leave the house, so I sit and await movies. Oldies.com is having some manner of prolonged sale (although, if you check it out, make sure you check the prices elsewhere - for instance, the Alpha Video catalog runs $5 or $6 per DVD, and that's what they're on "sale" for) and DiabolikDVD.com released a few new goodies (I'm pretty sure I'm responsible for keeping those guys in business). I'm dying to finally watch The Living Dead At The Manchester Morgue, and with any luck I'll have it today or tomorrow. I'm easy to please, really - fat, juicy brains, horror flicks and audio drama do the trick. Oh, and coffee (and boy oh boy, do I need a lot of that today).
Onto the posts!
Like in the old days, feel free to request stuff, but if you send a list of fifty things or request non-horror, sci-fi, suspense or fantasy ("weird tales" work too), I'll probably ignore it. The requests will go up every Monday. For the time being, the old pages are still up, so if there's something I'd once posted that you'd like to hear, send a link to the page to my e-mail addy, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Astronaut James donated this gem, and I got it cleaned up and ready to post. It's a HUGE file, but worth the download.
Listen as BBC great Liz Lochhead offers us the tale of how Mary Shelley's Frankenstein came to be...

Both Astronaut James and Astronaut David assisted with procuring the second series of Nebulous!
I hadn't heard of this series until BBC 7 started rerunning them, and this is by far my favorite sci-fi comedy, even giving (gasp!) Hitchhikers' Guide a run for it's digital watches.
For Series 1 and 3, visit this post.
The following descriptions are from the Nebulous fansite, Nebulous City.
Professor Nebulous and his inept team of eco-trouble shooters come face to face with the Debbies; a race of cloned wives who've been programmed to pamper with extreme prejudice... With special guest star Peter Davison.
The Deptford Wives
(24.5 mb; 26:51 min.)
A machine which controls the nation's pollen... People sneezing themselves to death... A race of bee/wasp hybrids called Bosps... Professor Nebulous thinks there's a connection... With special guest star Steve Coogan.
(25.7 mb; 28:06 min.)
The Trans-galactic Peace Conference is thrown into jeopardy when Professor Nebulous meets the deadly Infernons and is forced to swap minds with his arch enemy; the evil Doctor Klench. With special guest star David Warner.
(25.2 mb; 27:33 min.)
Destiny Of The Destinoyd
(25.9 mb; 28:18 min.)

Is Professor Nebulous trapped in a time loop? Or is Professor Nebulous trapped in a time loop?
The Last Of The Present Sirius
(23.8 mb; 26:00 min.)
This really should be a Hollweg's Choice, as my buddy Bill was prosthelytizing for this series pretty hard when he introduced it to me.
March 1945 and the Allies’ victory in Europe is a forgone conclusion. But then over a hundred RAF bombers are shot down in one night by a shimmering aircraft. Is this a new terror weapon? One that could turn the tide of war back in the Germans’ favour?
A misfit team of specialists are parachuted behind enemy lines, in the crucible between the attacking armies of the Russians and the Americans, to grab this technology and nip the threat in the bud.
What they find is more shocking and alien than they could have ever imagined...

Having thoroughly enjoyed Gerry Jones' Time After Time, Astronaut Barbara E wanted to hear The Fiend, All Through The Night, The Angels They Grow Lonely, Snake and/or Jack In The Box. I would like to hear any Gerry Jones, really, so if anyone might have a Gerry Jones tale not mentioned here, please let me know.
Astronaut James S would love to hear the KPVK series The Graveyard Shift.
I just realized I'm missing the BBC series The Gothic Tales Of Edgar Allan Poe, the first Christopher Lee series for BBC 4.
