  Unfortunate, perhaps, that they're trying to sell them in half-hour
  segments--wating a week for story-conclusions won't help their impact.
  I've heard most of the plays listed below, and can give them all (except
  the first Bisson, which I haven't heard) at least a qualified
  recommendation (Real Audio users will find all of these and more at the
  Dominion site, run for the Skiffy Channel--some of the older dramas
  average a bit better, some a lot worse).

  Seeing Ear Theatre on National Public Radio!

          On April 20th, Seeing Ear Theatre debuts on National
          Public Radio's NPR Playhouse series. For 13 weeks,
          Seeing Ear Theatre presents an all-new anthology
          series of contemporary, thought-provoking
          science-fiction radio dramas. Seeing Ear Theatre aims
          to re-define what radio drama can be, bringing modern
          stories, sounds, themes, and styles to a medium long
          considered "old-fashioned."

          But we need your help! Please contact your local
          NPR affiliate and ask them to carry SCI FI Channel's
          Seeing Ear Theatre.
