Roswell UFO Radio

The station for science-fiction radio dramas from the 1940s and later. Broadcasting from a secret underground bunker in Texas.

 

Ran across this steam of historic sci-fi radio drama. 

Nothing scientific -- just radio drama.

The app it linked to seems like a good way to find similar old time serials as well as regular radio and podcast favorites like NPR's comedy shows like 'Ask Me Another', which I have found tough to find and listen to from the phone.

 

And Roswell will run on my next road trip to a dark site, thanks. Those old sci-fi and mystery serials are a blast, even 80 or 90 years later.

I've been listening to Roswell UFO Radio and several other science-fiction Internet "radio stations" on Tune In for years.  Many of the episodes were based on stories by well-known science fiction writers of the 1950s and are very well done.

I have been looking for a SciFi drama that aired on the Rock station WLUP in Chicago on Sunday evenings in the early/mid 1980's.  I have not been able to find it nor remember the name of the program.

 

Wondering if anyone living in the Chicago area might remember this program.  It may have well aired on other stations across the country as well.

Here are a few graphics for sci-fi radio drama.
