The recordings we are always seeking are AFRS/AFRTS versions of the network shows, which closely resemble the original network broadcasts. The shows above would be in that format.

There are many AFRS recordings yet to be found that are not listed here. We have often found them in older digital collections and reel collections from the 1970s and 1980s that were not digitized. If you find any transcriptions or other recordings and want to check if they are “new” please contact me.
============================================
AFRTS late 1970s Versions

There are versions of Suspense that were released in the late 1970s and early 1980s by AFRTS that are of a very odd format. These shows are of interest as well and can be identified from certain characteristics. These shows are strangely edited, and you can hear pieces of Suspense openings and closings that have been compiled together. The opening bells of Suspense as heard in the early years of the program, with the voice of “The Man in Black” are often matched with recordings of dramatic performances from the 1950s. The name of the script is usually edited out, and there is usually no mention of cast members or production crews. Sometimes dialog is edited for timing purposes. To date, we have more than 25 of these programs.

This is the list of those episodes that have been found:
1942-09-02 Hitchhiker w/ Orson Welles AFRTS RU-11-0-1048.mp3

AFRS expert Thom Whetston [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] sent me this note about disc codes:

The RU designation means a "Radio Unit". This is only important because these discs were bicycled from station to station. There were a lot fewer of them pressed. The other part is the number after 14-0 would mean week 14 of either 197_0_ or 198_0_ . Sometimes it was calendar weeks. Sometimes it was fiscal year weeks. So, something like RU 18-9 or RP 10-1 is pretty important to know if available.

I now have the details about streaming my presentation

On Saturday, September 16 at 11am Eastern US time, go to
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
and see it streamed -- it's best to log in earlier to be sure it's all working.

A day or so later there will be an archive at the same site or at YouTube. Check here for details after the event.

I will post links to my Powerpoint slide deck -- they will be posted on Scribd.com after the presentation.

The audio will also be recorded by me as a backup and that file will be posted, too.

We're less than a month-and-a-half away!
