Ray Bradbury Tribute

This will be our first Halloween without Ray Bradbury, who passed away last spring. So, Fortunato will re-air the two short stories of his that we aired back then. 'Fog Horn', about a prehistoric sea monster who awakens in the deep to the "love call" of a lighthouse's fog horn. And Bradbury's first story to be printed in the slick paper magazines of the late 1940's, 'The Night'. An eight year old boy and his mother are waiting up one summer night for his older brother to return home from playing with his friends.  As it gets later, and he has not appeared, they fear there is something in the darkness... . Mrs White joins us for tonight's show.

Tonight we present "The Great Orpheum Gravy Boat Riot", a short story by Jean Shepherd, the author of "A Christmas Story". Set in a small Indiana town during the years of the Great Depression, Leopold Doppler, owner of the Orpheum Theater, would attract audiences by holding contests each night of the week besides just showing movies.

They have arrived at Pitcarne Island, home to the descendants of the crew of the Bounty. Their governor, old man McCoy, convinces the captain that there is not harbor or even a beach on the island, and he volunteers to lead the ship to the nearest island they can put the ship ashore.
