Macbeth the Usurper

Operation Luna/Red Planet

I've been listenening to "Jet Morgan" shows from the BBC for the last few months. I only just looked up on the show, to find out that it was a smash hit on BBC radio back in the 50's. No wonder this was a good show. The BBC had wiped the original tapes, but someone found the mis-filed transcription disks. Ah, the world of old media. That's as fun as archeology.

The sad truth of radio is that most of what we have is had strictly by accident. We have lots from the WWII era simply because they made so many transcripitions for the overseas military.
