What happened to the Radio Detective Story Hour

This post is late coming. I wanted to update those who have asked why there have not been any new postings to this blog/audio of the Radio Detective Story Hour. The fact is that I have been working for some time on another love of mine – Science Fiction. I co-wrote in 1996 a book on Science Fiction on Radio for which I had the lesser control. It has been my ambition to update that book for years on my own (my co-author died in 2001). Recently I have ramped up my research efforts and writing to try to get something published within the next year. Thus the focus had turned in that direction and I just haven’t had the time to post to this blog for a while.

I haven’t abandoned Detective/Suspense/Thriller radio from the the past though I have exhausted it nearly without sacrificing my own goals on this area so possibly there will be a new posting down the road. Thanks for all your patience!

    I wondered what happened to you, Jim.. you haven’t posted a new RDSH show since 31 July, 2017.. I looked around your site and found your posting (above) from a couple of weeks ago.. I was concerned that something had happened to you..

    Thanks for explaining the situation.. good luck on your Science Fiction book..

    I was unaware that Down these mean streets was connected to you, some good stuff there as well.I’ve all had a busy year, I moved from central Paris to rural Loire Valley, it’d like chalk and cheese, takes time to get things done but it’s a good quiet life. Here’s an interesting reference to ‘old time radio’ in a 1964 episode of Walk Softly Peter Troy, the Haunted Harridan , he describes it perfectly ,it’s right at the start of the episode

    again it’s time to wish all seasons greetings

    Albie, Down These Mean Streets is not connected to me. It was started about 5 or more years after I started RDSH. It is an excellent podcast and he has expanded and done a lot with the blog podcast. I am often re-tweeting his posts as he does mine and so you might have thought they were intertwined.
