It's Old-Time Radio day on Tales From SYL Ranch, the podcast that gives meaning to your boring, miserable existence.

This week, we travel back in time to the early 1950s.  The lineup for the week is:

  • The Old Fan's Introduction
  • Dragnet:  "The Big Man, Part 1"
  • X-Minus One:  "Time and Time Again"
  • Dragnet:  "The Big Man, Part 2"
  • X-MinusOne:  "The Seventh Order"
  • Secret musical piece

While these are only half science fiction, the two episodes of Dragnet are included as an example of what the best of the best shows could achieve.

Pop your smartphone into a good stereo and gather around the speakers.  Courtesy of the hijacked TARDIS (and wire recordings), we're going back in time for an evening of radio in the early 1950s.

TALES FROM SYL RANCH

EPISODE II:

The Old Fan's Commentary On The Star Wars Holiday Special


CHAOS!

Having stolen the Doctor's TARDIS, Commodore Lord William Robert Stone III of the Principality Of Sealand successfully navigated to 1977.  He revealed the ASTONISHING 40-year-old secret of STAR WARS.

Buoyed by the experience, Lord Stone is going forward in time to the next great STAR WARS adventure,  THE STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL.

While the PREQUEL TRILOGY is bad, THE STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL is totally INCOMPREHENSIBLE.

It's also BAD.  It's not so bad it's good, it's just BAD.  It's so BAD that this introduction is OSCAR MATERIAL by comparison.

Undaunted and quite possibly STUPID, Lord Stone inexorably makes his way to November 17, 1978 ....

TALES FROM SYL RANCH

EPISODE I:

The Old Fan's Commentary On ...
Blaze Glory (and Star Wars)?


It is a period of OLD FAN'S COMMENTARIES on Tales From SYL Ranch.

Commodore Lord William Robert Stone III of the Principality Of Sealand, custodian of a 40-YEAR-OLD SECRET, has stolen the Doctor's TARDIS and is MOVIE-HOPPING all over EARTH'S PAST.

Due to the ASTOUNDING nature of Lord Stone's SECRET, there will be no "Paying For the Soup," nor an episode of Dimension X.

Instead, Lord Stone will COMMENT on what it was like for a 12-year-old SCIENCE FICTION FAN to see STAR WARS in 1977, in glorious CINEMASCOPE.

To do the experience justice, Lord Stone will comment on STAR WARS: THE DESPECIALIZED EDITON. The Depsecialized Edition is a shot-for-shot RESTORATION of the film as released in 1977 on OPENING DAY.

To WATCH The Despecialized Editon, one must first OWN a copy of STAR WARS. What SELF-RESPECTNG FAN doesn't own at least one copy of STAR WARS?

Realizing that it's finally time for Humanity to know the 40-YEAR-OLD SECRET, Lord Stone is about has materialized in July 19, 2017, bringing SHOCKING NEWS to all of SCIENCE FICTION FANDOM ....

The final ten minutes are a closely-guarded secret.
