Re: Audio-only Trek TV series experiences

That's actually a cool idea: A Trek RADIO series...

Yeah, this takes me back! In the mid-seventies before home video got established, we used to make and trade audio cassettes of TOS episodes. I only had about a dozen or so, but I would listen to them once in a while.
My friends and I did the very same thing. It was re-runs, the Blish adaptations, and the really bad cassettes and not a whole lot else back then. Simpler times.

Re: Audio-only Trek TV series experiences

In Winnipeg, Manitoba where I grew up if you tuned the radio to 88 FM you could hear CBC televison programming.
I used to tape Trek ( on the VCR) when it was on Sunday nights at 11:30 but I'd be in bed listening to it also, and then watch it the next day.

I made audio cassettes of all the episodes way back in the early 70's. I clearly remember taping the tiny mike up on a stack of encyclopedias in front of the TV speaker. I used 120 minute cassettes so I wouldn't have to turn the tape around. I'd listen to them again in the evenings, trying to remember everything that was happening. Boy, that takes me back.

Yep, me too, boy are we old.

Re: Audio-only Trek TV series experiences

Lessons is probably one of the best audio-only episodes. It has a lot of music and drama.

And another one.

I remember having to stay really quiet, and living in fear that someone would walk into the room and start talking. Oh, those were the days!

Re: Audio-only Trek TV series experiences

In another thread someone suggested the TAS works better if you just listen and don't watch the horrendous animation. You do lose the cool post-psychedelic alien landscapes and buildings though.
