"Radio Drama Review: X-Minus-One."
Hello and welcome to the 1950s Science Fiction Podcast, Season 4, Episode 3. Today, I will be discussing two episodes from the classic science fiction radio drama, X-Minus-One. This show aired on NBC radio during the late 1950s before it was discontinued. It was a reboot of an earlier radio drama called Dimension X, which I previously discussed in one of my earliest articles on Vocal Media. X-Minus-One was one of the few radio dramas that focused solely on science fiction and did not include other genres such as horror and mystery.

Lights Out TV Show.
The TV show called "Lights Out". Welcome back to the 1950s Science Fiction Podcast. Today, I want to talk about the early days of TV and a show called Lights Out. It was a TV version of a popular radio show from the 1930s. I recently published an article about it on my Vocal. media profile page. If you're interested, please take a look. I have almost 60 stories on various topics related to science fiction, podcasts, and popular culture. To find my profile, go to Vocal. media and search for Edward German in the author's section. You can also find a link on the podcast platform. Thank you for listening.
During the Great Depression in the early 1930s, a radio drama called "Lights Out" was created by Wyllis Cooper and produced by the legendary Arch Orber. It aired on both the NBC and CBS radio networks from 1934 to 1947 and was later adapted into a television series that ran on NBC for three seasons starting in 1949. While the show was categorized as horror, it also incorporated elements of suspense, mystery, and science fiction.

The Life of Starlog MagazineTop Story - May 2022
In the days before the internet and social media, one of the means for fans to stay informed was to subscribe to print media. While commercial TV and radio produced some news coverage for fans, the amount of time was limited. Therefore fans could get more in-depth coverage by reading a print story on their favorite movie or show. There were many different fan-oriented magazines back in the day, but one does stand out as being very popular during the 70s and 80s. That was Starlog Magazine.
