Chris Baskous -- Splendor and Death of Porfiro Rubirosa |
Voice play/radio drama -- It's a radio drama about the "famous latin lover Porfiro Rubirosa" It's great!! It's a parallel story of the odyssey of Porfiro "Rubi" Rubirosa who flees a car accident into the sewers of Paris and the tale of Woody Mezmer, a lowly marine biologist in Massachusetts. It has lots of good sound effects and excellent dramatic voice work. And I mean excellent!! And it's funny! You could play a chunk of it (I would start with Tracks 1,5, 7, or 10 ) or you could play the whole thing -- now KFJC won't be the only ones around playing radio dramas anymore!
