Then at 7:00pm Pacif­ic Time, tune in for “The Radio Riel Play­ers Present: Tales from New Bab­bage”. The Radio Riel Play­ers Present is Radio Riel’s inde­pen­dent radio pro­duc­tion of clas­sic sto­ries, poems and plays, all per­formed by The Radio Riel Play­ers from around the world. Tales from New Bab­bage are dark­er sto­ries brought to you by the res­i­dents of the Steam­punk City-State of New Bab­bage. As they say in New Bab­bage, what could pos­si­bly go wrong?

Every sailor knows that the best sou­venir one brings back from a for­eign port is a good sea sto­ry. Tonight’s sto­ries are just that — sea sto­ries.

The Basha’s Goril­la, by William Pat­ter­son White (1910). Read by Byron Wex­home and Rowan Der­ry­th. White was best known for writ­ing cow­boy adven­ture sto­ries in the ear­ly 20th cen­tu­ry.

Voy­age East­ward, from the Sur­pris­ing Adven­tures of Baron Mun­chausen, 1895 edi­tion, by Rudolph Erich Raspe. Read by Emper­or Ezra Crumb II. The tales of Baron Mun­chausen were first trans­lat­ed into Eng­lish in 1785 from an anony­mous col­lec­tion in Ger­man. Baron Mun­chausen was an actu­al 18th cen­tu­ry noble­man and his sto­ries should be assumed to be absolute­ly reli­able and true, despite the fact that many are based on folk­tales that were cir­cu­lat­ing well before his birth.

Dav­ey Jones’s Gift, by John Mase­field, read by Victor1st Morn­ing­ton. First pub­lished in Coun­try Life, Novem­ber 11, 1905. Mase­field­’s aunt thought lit­tle of her nephew’s addic­tion to read­ing, so she sent him off to train for a life at sea to cure him of it. He became a Poet Lau­re­ate and one of the great­est nau­ti­cal sto­ry­tellers of all time.
