Shalom aleykham! Christmas may be over, but those eight crazy nights of Chanukah are still in full swing! Join us for a delightful conversation with our good friend Dr. Reba Wissner, author of A Dimension of Sound: Music in The Twilight Zone. This is strictly a BYOL affair (Bring Your Own Latkes). L’Chiam!

 

Opening music: “Neither Here nor There” (2nd Revision) by Twin Loops

“Chanukah, Oh Chanukah” performed by Theodore Bikel (from the album A Taste of Chanukah, copyright 1999 by Rounder)

Season’s greetings! This week Craig peers beneath the tinsel on “The Night of the Meek,” not just a Twilight Zone classic but a perennial holiday must-see, then flashes forward 25 years to see if the 80’s remake can hold a candle to it (spoiler alert: it can’t). He then wraps (har har) things up with a reading of a classic Rod Serling piece on his most memorable Christmas. Grab some egg nog or spark up a doobie (whatever gets you all warm ‘n fuzzy), curl up by the fire… and bask in the glow. Happy holidays, y’all.

Shape-shifters of the world unite! This week Craig takes on the Twilight Zone classic “The Four of Us Are Dying” (and the George Clayton Johnson short story that inspired it) as well as the not-quite-so classic “The Self-Improvement of Salvadore Ross” in a jazz-fueled free fall into the neon-splashed netherworld of film noir. Along the way he enjoys an enlightening chat with Mr. Stephen Pickard, the man largely responsible for the HD-sourced transfers (and the bumper crop of isolated music tracks!) commissioned for the glorious Definitive Edition DVD sets… which makes him a true hero in our eyes.

 

Opening theme: “Neither Here Nor There” (Revision #2) by Twin Loops

Closing music: “The Four of Us Are Dying” by Nine Inch Nails (from the album The Slip, copyright 2008 by the Null Corporation)

Yeeeeeeehaw! This week Craig travels to the Old West this week for a tense showdown with the Twilight Zone classic “Mr. Denton on Doomsday” and discovers a whole mess o’ similarities between it and “An Echo of Bugles,” the pilot episode of Rod Serling’s post-TZ series The Loner. Saddle up, dudes and lasses… and let’s ride!

 

Opening music: “Neither Here nor There” (Revision 1) by Twin Loops

Closing music: “The Lone Wanderer” by Antti Martikainen (from the album Creation of the World, copyright 2013 by DistroKid)
