|KCHO Sunday Nite premiered in the fall of 1986 as a tip of the hat to the older era of radio that I remembered as a youth. This show was a combination of jazz, comedy, radio drama, science fiction, studio guests, and live jazz performances all produced from within the confines of our small Studio B in the basement of the CSU, Chico Merriam Library.|
October 18, 1987
This episode captured two of the half hour radio dramas that were often featured as part of KCHOSUN.
Visit New Grimston, Anyway was an elaborate satire on big city government and bureaucracy of the 1980s. It was produced by NPR Playhouse.
The Incredible Adventures of Jack Flanders was a ZBS Foundation production that began with the unexpected late-night delivery of an overstuffed green velvet armchair to Jack Flanders, courtesy of "Venus Velvet". Falling asleep in this armchair draws Jack into a sometimes amusing, sometimes nightmarish dream world populated by sky pirates crewing winged sailing ships, winged reptilian "fromborks", mad sorcerers dueling in mechanical demons, tap dancing marsh wizards who assist Jack in his negotiations with the Lords of Death.
The surviving recording captured 2:35:07 of this evening's show from about 9:08pm - 11:47 pm.
