Episode 255 – INDY YEAR – Raiders on Record – interview with TOM VOEGELI

Indy Year continues as we look at a little secret gem in Indiana Jones history, 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark : The Movie on Record.  This wild artifact from the past is basically the entire movie, cut down to about 45 minutes and presented in a purely audio format.  It has no narration and is just audio from the film with some extra sounds mixed in along the way. Join us as we talk to the record’s Grammy winning producer and engineer, TOM VOEGELI about just how all this all happened.   How did Tom’s work on the Star Wars Radio Dramas lead to the record?  What involvement did sound wizard Ben Burtt have on it all?  Why is the audio format so perfect for the world of Indiana Jones? It’s a fascinating interview and we are so happy to shine some Staff of Ra light on this amazing record! So, trust us and listen today for some fortune and glory

Episode 251 – INDY YEAR month 1 – From Star Wars to Indiana Jones

Our year long monthly tribute to the 40th anniversary of Star Wars’ cousin, Indiana Jones is finally here!  In this first installment, we are looking at the creation of Indy and how so many of the same ingredients that went into the creation of the galaxy far far away also went into making the great adventure.  How did Lucas and Spielberg meet?  Who is the third very important person that made the early development of Raiders soar?  What happened in the lengthy story conferences where much of everything Indiana Jones was figured out?  Just what is it about the Indy films that much like Star Wars, makes them still work so well today?  This is the fun filled kickoff to Indy Year and you don’t need the Staff of Ra to find it!   So build some sand castles on the beach, trust us & listen today for some Fortune and Glory!
