Loose Wheels and Narrow Necks

New Great Northern release at Blackstone Audio

Loose Wheels & Narrow Necks
Over the years while writing, directing, and acting at radio theater workshops and in the Mark Time Radio show performances at Minneapolis' CONvergence science fiction conventions, Brian Price and David Ossman found that they shared a love for classic Beat poetry, Lord Buckley, and prose poems, so they started doing some of their own. This is a collection of their unique hybrid of humor, music, character, and performance.

“Great short stories by one of my favorite writers!” – David Ossman.

Written by Brian Price, except for the one that was written by Brian Price and Jerry Stearns. Performed by David Ossman, except for the one performed by Richard Fish and the one performed by Eleanor Price, and the ones performed by the whole cast.

Available at the
Blackstone Audio Downpour website. Some are posted here on our Mark Time Radio History page.
