Wednesday Magic District: Aliens and radio

October 28, 2009 at 7:41 pm (Magic District)

Today’s (late) Magic District touches on one local show — the Big Broadcast of October 30, 1938, taking place this weekend — and on audio fiction in general.  It’s a little scattered, but mostly it’s about how fiction in a radio or podcast format or even just reading a piece aloud makes different demands on the audience and author alike.

I wonder: are there any stories that are solely meant to be read aloud?  Not oral histories as such, but stories that don’t function nearly so well in written format.  Hm.

    Yay Big Broadcast! Several of my friends are in it. We’re going Friday night.

    Some stories beg to be read aloud. Like Winnie the Pooh.

      You know, I still hear my grandmother’s voice whenever I read “James James Morrison Morrison Weatherby George Dupree…”

        That’s funny. So do I.
