Now available for Android, Google Play, iTunes Podcasts, Stitcher, www.satanicstorytime.com, and www.radiofreesatan.com: Satanic Story Time presents episode 37 – "Marionettes, Inc.", from Dimension X.

The Devil’s Tuning Fork: A series of events has led me to the coincidental choosing of these particular tracks. I have selected “Symphony of Destruction” from Megadeth’s fifth album, Countdown to Extinction, which was released on July 6, 1992 through Capitol Records. Also on the track listing for this episode is AC/DC’s “TNT” from their second album, TNT, with the late Bon Scott which was released only in Australia on December 1, 1975. Last but not least on the lineup for “The Devil’s Tuning Fork” for episode 37 is King Diamond’s “The Puppet Master” from his 11th solo album, The Puppet Master, which was released on October 21, 2003.

The Devil’s Workshop: Keeping with the theme of this episode, I have selected an old time horror radio show for you entitled, “Marionettes, Inc."

The radio adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s “Marionettes, Inc.” was originally presented by Dimension X. Dimension X was an NBC radio program broadcast on an unsponsored, sustaining basis from April 8, 1950, to September 29, 1951. The first 13 episodes were broadcast live, and the remainder were pre-recorded. Fred Wiehe and Edward King were the directors. Norman Rose was heard as both announcer and narrator. “Marionettes, Inc.” was first heard on Dimension X and NBC radio on August 30, 1951 and was adapted for radio by George Lefferts. It served as Dimension X’ 46th episode.

The story itself was written by Ray Bradbury and first appeared in Startling Stories in March of 1949. It was later published in a collection of his short stories, The Illustrated Man. The story presents a conflict between man and machine and depicts human dependence on technology. Smith and Braling, both men of middle age, find themselves trapped in their marriages. Braling (whose wife is nervous and authoritarian) and Smith (whose wife is too dependent and constantly demands his presence and affection) both long for personal freedom. However, both characters fear the uncertainty of change and the possible consequences of their selfish desires, and thus endure their situation.

Smith learns about "marionettes", exact robotic duplicates produced by Marionettes, Inc. The manufacturer, whose motto is "No Strings Attached", markets the marionettes as temporary replacements for the customer. Braling reveals to Smith that he has been using a marionette to fulfill his obligations as a husband while he pursues his personal interests. His wife is completely unaware of the duplication, and he plans to visit Rio de Janeiro while his marionette is replacing him at home. Braling shows off his marionette to Smith. Smith, fascinated by this solution, decides to buy his own marionette to escape his domestic prison.

The story ends in the bedroom with Braling kissing Mrs. Braling, but Bradbury skillfully uses pronouns to make it unclear whether Braling is really Braling or his marionette duplicate. The reader's interpretation could indicate either that the duplicate has disposed of his former master, or that Braling has won out and subsequently found new appreciation for his wife.

Now available for Android, Google Play, iTunes Podcasts, Stitcher, www.satanicstorytime.com, and www.radiofreesatan.com:  Satanic Story Time Episode 34 – "The Pit and the Pendulum", written by Edgar Allan Poe, with special guest, Warlock Miguel Guerrero Sr.

The Devil’s Tuning Fork: Miguel Guerrero Sr. and I have chosen the following tracks for this “Poe-etic” episode: “Alone” is performed by none other than Michaelanthony Mandrake. Miguel Guerrero Sr. performs "Annabel Lee". And we play “My Lost Lenore” from Tristania’s 1998 album, Widow’s Weeds.

The Devil’s Workshop: Keeping the “Poe-etic” inspiration flowing, we have John Dickson Carr’s radio adaptation of “The Pit and the Pendulum” written by Edgar Allan Poe for Suspense. It first aired on November 10, 1957. It starred John Hoyt, Ellen Morgan, Helen Morgan and Jay Novello. Vincent Price starred as our protagonist.

The Devil is in the Details: Miguel and I spoke in regard to his discovery of Satanism, satanic jewelry, his hobbies and his favorite creations.

Mail Bats: Miguel and I answer a question from one of the listeners: “When religious people pray, they, more often than not, do not get what they want, is it the same for you?” The short and resounding answer is no. We typically get what we desire. Miguel and I elaborate on why this statistically holds true.

Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound: Miguel and I uncover some minimalistic cocktails which include the following: “Scotch Milk Punch”, an unnamed “Eggnog Grog” (I call it ‘Cthulhu Christmas’), and an absinthe and champagne cocktail known as “Death in the Afternoon”.

Now available in Android, Google Play, iTunes Podcasts, Stitcher, www.satanicstorytime.com, and at www.radiofreesatan.com:  Satanic Story Time Episode 33 – “Vineyard”, Chapter 1 of The Thirteen Knights of Death, written by M.R. Stover, with special guest, M.R. Stover.

The Devil’s Tuning Fork: M.R. Stover has carefully selected the following tracks for The Devil’s Tuning Fork:  “An Ominous Awakening” from Gyps Fulvus’ brand new album, The Lich, “Sanctus Diavolos” from Rotting Christ, and “Enter the Hall of Ice” from Aghast.

The Devil’s Workshop: M.R. Stover has bestowed his story, “Vineyard”, Chapter 1 of The Thirteen Knights of Death for its audio adaptation for Satanic Story Time. This audio adaptation takes on some new characteristics that were previously unused for Satanic Story Time’s short story segments. Among the new technological differences, listeners will enjoy a clearer narrative. You will also hear the newly created soundscapes embedded with the sound effects for a more surreal listening experience.

Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound: M.R. Stover and I divulge the details of the spawning of this brand new segment which involves fine wines, whiskeys, beers, and yes, cocktails too. Moreover, you get a brief history on the creation and inspiration of Mountain Dew. In addition, you get the recipe for the cocktail known as “Satan’s Whiskers” which always contains gin, but depending on the variation, straight or curled, can include either Grand Marnier or Curacao. I have included this recipe in the show notes for your convenience. Just to get you into the mood for some whiskey, I have shared The Stanley Brothers’ 1961 hit, simply entitled, “Mountain Dew”. Cheers!

Notes: As promised, here is the recipe for “Satan’s Whiskers” Cocktail:
*There are two versions of this classic cocktail, one calling for Grand Marnier, the other using orange Curacao. This recipe is considered the “straight” version. The other is “curled.”
½ oz gin
½ oz Grand Marnier
½ oz sweet vermouth
½ oz dry vermouth
½ oz orange juice
Dash orange bitters
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: cocktail
*Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled glass.
