The Hard-Boiled Poker Radio Show, Episode 13: The Life of Riley

The Hard-Boiled Poker Radio ShowFinally! Have a new episode of the Hard-Boiled Poker Radio Show for yr listening pleasure. You can listen by clicking here. You can also head over to iTunes to grab the show, if that’s the way you normally handle these things.

Have a comedy-themed show this time around. First up is a reading of James Thurber’s terrific poker-themed short story titled “Everything is Wild” (first published in the New Yorker in 1932). Managed to coerce Vera Valmore into doing the voices for the female characters in this one. Am also trying again to do a little of that “audio theater” here, inspired, I suppose, by all of these old radio shows.

The main feature this time is an episode of the old comedy show The Life of Riley called “The Gambling Lesson.” A fairly humorous sitcom-type show that does manage to produce a few grins.

Send yr feedback either by commenting here, on the show’s blog, or by sending an email to shamus at hardboiledpoker dot com.

James Thurber is my favorite writer. It was when I read his stuff in middle school that I decided that I wanted to be a writer too.

I'll definitely download and give it a listen. :)
