Radio Theater: Time Out For Bill Lizard


Bill Lizard is a detective, and this very old guy pops out of a vortex and hands him a mobile phone, and then disappears again. Bill seems to be the only person around who hasn’t seen the vortex guy before. And then things start to get really weird.

Written and produced by Roger Gregg, of Crazy Dog Audio Theater. There seems to be a large number of actors in this piece, but you could never tell that ALL of them are played by Roger Gregg. This and other Bill Lizard tales are available On YouTube.

Radio Theater: Vince Washburn in "If You've Got The Time."

Vince, the New Age Detective, is hired to help a beautiful woman find her lost brother, who is missing in San Francisco – in 1905. And little Jimmy Knox keeps sneaking in and pushing buttons that shouldn’t be touched.

We heard the first episode of Vince Washburn earlier in the series, as performed at the Midwest Radio Theater Workshop. This second episode was done by the Shockwave crew at a Minicon Science Fiction convention. Take note of character names and see if they don’t seem familiar, if you live in Minneapolis.
