12:00 am: Timing is everything
There are certain movies that gain significance when viewed on a certain date. Groundhog Day, Back to the Future, 2001: A Space Odyssey & 1985 for a few examples. The holiday or date or year presented in the film resonates with the calendar in a way that can only be achieved once ever in that particular context. Moments like these delight & fascinate me, especially when it deals with a work written years ago & I'm experiencing it on the actual day the story takes place. -- It's still a few years before the 2015 in Back to the Future II becomes a reality but you can already guess where I'll be on October 26th.

Today is another such occasion, tho' perhaps not as specific to the year. I present to you a story from X Minus One, an old time radio science fiction series originally broadcast in 1956. It will be available for you to download all day & is intended to be listened to on June 15th. Please enjoy.

Update: Right-click & "save as" to get 404'd. This offer is now closed.

I'm glad you liked them. People don't always comment when I post something to download so it's difficult to guage whether it will actually be checked out. I do it anyway.

It was all too late when I remembered the Monty Python sketch that starts out "June the Fourth was just any other day in Petersborough..." It'll have to wait until next year.
