Blanket Fort Radio Theater: A Storytelling Initiative from SIU Press in Collaboration with the SIU Creative Writing Program and WSIU

Southern Illinois University Press

Blanket Fort Radio Theater (BFRT) is a new collection of serialized audiobooks from Southern Illinois University Press. In contrast to standard audiobooks, BFRT productions have a distinctive sound that features musical underscoring and many actors playing various roles, giving the recordings the nostalgic feel of radio theater shows. BFRT productions are released weekly as podcast episodes.

The first season, featuring A Knight of Another Sort: Prohibition Days and Charlie Birger by Gary DeNeal, is available on NPR One, Spotify , iTunes, or the WSIU podcast page.  At least one new episode will be available each week. Each episode is 15-18 minutes in length. Search for Blanket Fort Radio Theater. https://news.wsiu.org/programs/blanket-fort-radio-theater#stream/0
