A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a comedy by William Shakespeare that portrays the marriage of Theseus, the Duke of Athens, to Hippolyta, the former queen of the Amazons. In parallel are the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and ‘the mechanicals’, a group of actors who are controlled by the fairies.
The play begins with Hermia who loves Lysander, as she resists her fathers demand that she wed Demetrius. Meanwhile, Helena pines for Demetrius. Angered, her father invokes an ancient Athenian law whereby a daughter must marry the suitor chosen by her father, or face death. Theseus offers her another choice, lifelong chastity while worshipping the goddess Artemis as a nun.

On Christmas night in 1950, Judy Garland recreated her 1939 role and stars as Dorothy in this Radio Theatre presentation of The Wizard of Oz, where she travels to a far off land of adventure and danger, only to learn that “there’s no place like home”.
Rounding out the cast were: Herb Vigran as the Tin Man, Hans Conreid as the scarecrow, Ed Max as the Lion, Herb Butterfield as the Wizard, Betty Lou Gerson as the Good Witch, Noreen Gammill as the Wicked Witch, William Johnson as Uncle Henry, Ruth Perrott as Auntie Em, Gil Stratton as the Mayor, and David Light, as Toto.
This under an hour made for radio play is well worth a listen. The songs are here, the jokes are here, as is the charm and sweetness of the original motion picture.

A fun, irreverent, one and a half hour long BBC Radio Drama of the classic Jules Verne sci-fi fantasy novel.
Axel, the nephew of the renowned professor and mineralogist Otto Lidenbrock, narrates the story of their Journey to the Center of the Earth.
In May of 1863, Professor Lidenbrock acquires an old runic manuscript and an encrypted message from 16th-century Icelandic alchemist Arne Saknussemm. Lidenbrock believes that Saknussemm wants to share a scientific discovery. The professor tries to decipher the message but has trouble doing so. Axel manages to decipher the message as “the traveler who climbs up on the crater of Snæfells volcano can get into the center of the Earth”. It seems Saknussemm once took this journey himself. Axel knows that his uncle will want to make a similar attempt and decides not to tell him of the find, but eventually gives in.
They then climb the volcano crater and find a slope inward. They to descend to the depths of the Earth. When they reach a crossroads, they first choose the wrong route; this path is a dead end and they are forced to turn back. Meanwhile, their supply of water runs out and it seems that the expedition is doomed to fail.
