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.
The Chronic Rift Network is pleased to present these episodes, one a month for your listening pleasure. You will hear mysteries, horror stories, Christmas tales, science fiction, and more. In addition, our own John S. Drew contributed stories to the series. Listen for his "The Old Curiosity Shop" and "Justin Case: Private Investigator" in the coming months.
For our second installment, we present "A Matter of Life and Death" by David Binkley. When Mercy's mother has a heart attack, it brings out all sorts of questions regarding the life one leads and how one chooses to live it. It all leads to the ultimate question that many of us face in our lifetime.
