The Listening Post - Captivating Audiobooks and Radio Programs
(Jan 11, 2020, 06:31 am)RobertX Wrote: Resurgence, what an original thread you have here!

One question: if I was to make a contribution, can I include autobiographies? I want to submit recordings of an audiobook by Steve Austin from his wrestling autobiography, "The Stone Cold Truth."

Yes, autobiographies are a welcome addition to the thread. 

The audiobook you mentioned sounds interesting.
Happy Valentine's Day!

Radio Drama:

A Room With A View


E.M. Forster

A radio adaptation of the 1908 novel.

Circa 1900, Lucy Honeychurch visits Italy with her cousin Charlotte Bartlett. In a Florence pensione with English guests, Lucy finds her neatly ordered existence thrown off balance. Her eyes are opened by the unconventional characters she meets at the Pensione Bertolini: flamboyant romantic novelist Eleanor Lavish, the Signora, curious Mr Emerson and, most of all, his son George.

George and his father offer their rooms with views to Lucy and her chaperone. Lucy and George get acquainted, but Lucy returns to England.

Later, George and Lucy meet again in England, but now she's engaged to the pretentious, dull snob Cecil Vyse. Cecil has social standing and would seem to be the socially acceptable partner for Lucy. She appears to have her life all mapped out, however the presence of the free-spirited, open-hearted George has her unsettled.

Will Lucy follow her heart or live according to society's expectations of her life?

If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor

File Size 933mb

Though it offers few revelations about the details of Campbell's personal life, this entertaining and witty Hollywood memoir combines his life story with how-to guidance on making independent films and becoming a pop culture cult hero. Campbell began working in show business as a teenager, and in high school became friends with future director Sam Raimi, with whom he eventually co-produced the 1982 cult horror hit Evil Dead, in which Campbell starred. Despite his wry, modest sense of humor Campbell recognizes the peculiar place that Evil Dead holds in contemporary culture he sincerely conveys the enormous commitment and work that went into making and marketing the movie. By the time he describes the film's premiere, Campbell's sense of triumph is palpable: we share his excitement when the film makes back its money and by 2000 becomes number three on the all-time video charts after Lady and the Tramp and Titanic. When Campbell isn't starring in new films like Evil Dead II and Moontrap, he is desperately often hilariously looking for investors for his new projects. His subtitle aside, Campbell's career has gone mainstream: he has appeared in Homicide and Ellen, is a regular on Hercules and Xena, and has started directing as well. (June)Forecast: While a boon to film cultists and to Campbell's many fans, this book also has enough insights and smarts to appeal to readers with a serious interest in popular culture. A planned author tour and national print advertising will help it capitalize on Campbell's cult following.

Radio Drama:

The Lord Of The Rings

by J.R.R. Tolkien

Adapted for radio by Brian Sibley.

In 1981 BBC Radio 4 broadcast a dramatization of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings in 26 half-hour stereo installments.

It followed a previous 12-part BBC Radio version from 1955 and 1956, of which no recordings are known to have survived.

Each of the original 26 episodes received two broadcasts per week - standard practice for many BBC radio serials even today. The first broadcast of Episode 2 was blacked out across a large part of south east England because of a transmitter failure (a very rare occurrence even then).

The 26-part series was subsequently edited into 13 hour-long episodes, restoring some dialogue originally cut for timing (since each hour-long episode is actually around 57 minutes, as opposed to 54 minutes for two half-hour episodes), rearranging some scenes for dramatic impact and adding linking narration and music cues. It was broadcast in 13 episodes in 1982.

The re-edited version was released on both cassette tape and CD sets which also included the soundtrack album (noticeably taken from a vinyl copy).

A soundtrack album featuring a completely re-recorded and in some cases expanded, suite of Stephen Oliver's music was released in 1981 (posted below).

This is one of the finest radio dramas ever produced.

Kill Anything That Moves: The Real American War in Vietnam

by Nick Turse

[Image: 1e4b78339d671bab7.jpg]

Americans have long been taught that events such as the notorious My Lai massacre were isolated incidents in the Vietnam War, carried out by just a few "bad apples." But as award-winning journalist and historian Nick Turse demonstrates in this groundbreaking investigation, violence against Vietnamese noncombatants was not at all exceptional during the conflict. Rather, it was pervasive and systematic, the predictable consequence of official orders to "kill anything that moves."

Drawing on more than a decade of research into secret Pentagon archives and extensive interviews with American veterans and Vietnamese survivors, Turse reveals for the first time the workings of a military machine that resulted in millions of innocent civilians killed and wounded-what one soldier called "a My Lai a month." Devastating and definitive, Kill Anything That Moves finally brings us face-to-face with the truth of a war that haunts America to this day.


There is a YouTube post for this audiobook, but I don't recommend that you listen to it. There are several sections in the audiobook that have been cut.
