Here are six stupendous reasons why I love Datajunkie: "O" is for Orson!, "W" is for Welles!, "C" is for Campbell Playhouse!, "H" is for Harry Lime!, "M" is for Mercury Theater on the Air and "Z" is for Zither!. I love Orson Welles and those vintage radio recordings and songs sounds like music to my ears. He had the perfect voice, he knew how to use it and he was clever enough to choose the right texts for it. It’s a pity that the stupid-bitch-Hearst didn’t like Citizen Kane and helped a lot to destroy Welles’ career. Anyway, he was brilliant at the radio too.
There are more great stuff there: the audio version of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven by the superb Vincent Price I think ( I didn’t listen it yet) and Horror Stars on OTR!: radio lectures of horror and mystery (or suspense) stories read by Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Peter Lorre and Vincent Price.
More Welles: From Zombies to Orson Welles, The Shadow knows, Orson Welles and his early movies, The Mercury Theatre on the Air and Trailers of movies remakes and War of the Worlds.
Update: Datajunkie made a new Orson Welles post "T" is for The Third Man!.
