Thank you for tuning in and spreading the word about Fantasy Faire Radio. In spite of the slings and arrows of outrageous grid instabilities, we are very proud of the rebroadcasts of Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein”, and the live broadcast of Robert Louis Stevenson’s “The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde.” Special thanks goes to CeeJay Writer and Seanchai Library for hosting listening parties for the October 19th and 20th events.
There are no special events scheduled for November (which tends to fly by at light speed anyhow). Plans are in the works for both December and possibly January. Stay tuned (and see below)! Continue reading This Month on Fantasy Faire Radio: November 2019

The novella, by Robert Louis Stevenson, was adapted for radio and live performance in seven voices by Caledonia Skytower and David Abbot.
CORWYN ALLEN: Gabriel John Utterson
Utterson is a lawyer and close loyal friend of Jekyll and Lanyon for many years, as far back as University. He is a measured and at all times emotionless, bachelor – who nonetheless seems believable, trustworthy, tolerant of the faults of others, and indeed genuinely likable. He does not partake in gossip or other views of the upper class out of respect for his fellow man.
ELRIK MERLIN: Narration / Inspector Newcomen / & Richard Enfield.
Enfield is Utterson’s cousin and is a well known “man about town.” He first sees Hyde at about three in the morning in an episode that is well documented as Hyde is running over a little girl. He is the person who mentions to Utterson the actual personality of Jekyll’s friend, Hyde. He says that Hyde is disgusting looking but finds himself stumped when asked to describe the man. Newcomen is a police inspector.
DA5ID ABBOT & KAYDEN OCONNELL: Dr Henry Jekyll & Mr Edward Hyde:
Jekyll is a “large, well-made, smooth-faced man of fifty with something of a slyish cast”. He has spent a great part of his life trying to repress evil urges that were not fitting for a man of his stature. He creates a serum, or potion, in an attempt to separate this hidden evil from his personality. In doing so, Jekyll transformed into the smaller, younger, cruel, remorseless, evil Hyde. Jekyll has many friends and an amiable personality, but as Hyde, he becomes mysterious and violent. Jekyll remains the natural composite of his good and ill natures. Hyde is entirely evil. Continue reading ABOUT: “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”
It was just a year ago that Fantasy Faire Radio and Seanchai Library (proud sponsors of FFR) engaged in a joint venture in radio drama to spice up the station’s off-Faire season for listeners and Faire fans. That resulted in a radio drama adaptation of Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” which was re-broadcast this past weekend. Well, Fantasy Faire Radio is not done with October just yet.
On Sunday, October 27th at 2pm slt/Pacific, FFR and the Library team up again to present Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, in a new adaptation for radio and live performance in seven voices. The 90-minute presentation will take place live at Pixeltrix – home of the creators of the “Octoberville” and “Wicked Winter” interactive experiences. Pixeltrix is a community that enthusiastically celebrates the holidays, and especially the spirit of Halloween.

It’s October and most likely, wherever you are, the former season has given up all pretensions of lingering, and it is now well and truly autumn. Autumn is different across the globe, but one thing we know is that it’s a great time for celebration. Soon it will be six months since last Faire, and six months till Fantasy Faire 2020 – and at Fantasy Faire Radio (where you only need to clear your throat loudly for us to party) we have seasonal fun to offer between now and All Hallows.

International Talk Like A Pirate Day is September 19th, and Fantasy Faire Radio (FFR) will be two boot-straps ahead of the festivities on Sunday, September 15th as we celebrate PIRATE SUNDAY in the traditional high seas manner. Dust off yer peg leg and get yer fancy dress eye patch out for two hours of merriment and hijinks, beginning at 2pm slt.
The The Pirates Cove on Deep Blue Lagoon will be open for business as we weigh anchor and set musical sail with that most notorious of seafaring brigands, DJ Zander Greene. All scalliwags are welcome – be they one, two, or four legged, tiny, petite, mer, or otherwise. The Cove accommodates all, both above and beneath the waves. Shoulder Parrots optional. If yer mast is miss’n, hoist yer sails anyhow and join us.
If you like salty tales of the sea, stop in at The Friendly Tentacle Tavern, where FFR sponsor Seanchai Library has set up a Pirate Listening Room with stories streaming 24/7 read by the talented talespinner, Shandon Loring.
