Welcome to a new audio drama anthology series here on The Chronic Rift Network! David Binkley is the producer and director of the WCRS Radio Stage program. He has always loved old radio dramas so in 2000 when Written Communications Radio Service, a radio reading service for the blind, took their studios to digital he started preparing scripts that could relive those thrilling days of yesteryear. He assembled friends and volunteers and they laid down the voice tracks with sound effects and music inserted in post production.
The thought was to produce a half hour drama a month. An ambitious goal considering that there was NEVER a regular radio drama series EVER broadcast out of Akron, Ohio. Over the next twenty-four months they were able to produce twenty-two stories, After that they put together an occasional story - mostly at Christmas.
For the third installment in the series, we present a story that our own John S. Drew contributed. John created his own anthology series, THE OLD CURIOSITY SHOP, for WCRS Radio Stage. In the premiere episode, the curator of a shop of odds and ends, tells the story of a man who purchased a special pair of rose colored glasses - and you know what happens if you view the world through rose colored glasses for too long.
