Cornucopia Radio Podcast 59: Dylan and Blod
12 Jan 2017 @ 02:03 am

Dylan and Blodwyn are sat on a welsh mountainside about to start their weekly picnic. However the picnic basket remains closed and we can only but guess what they’ve brought along to eat. Who knows, perhaps they’ve forgotten to bring anything at all? It’s happened before... They’ve been sat in silence for some time now. The sky remaining overcast and the air hanging heavy and thick. Suddenly, Blodwyn recalls the question she wanted to ask. The question she knew she had to ask. She turns to Dylan and begins to speak...

Cornucopia Radio Podcast 58: Stone
8 Dec 2016 @ 07:17 am

Long ago when the universe was young. Alicia Harker, the Twelfth Daughter of Destiny, took the mettle of a dead god and forged it into a bronze hand. That hand would bestow good fortune on anyone who owned it. She then discarded it by a roadside, where it might be found and passed from person to person, bringing good fortune to those who’d done nothing to deserve it. And once every hundred years, she sets out on an adventure to discover it and see what its latest beneficiary’s made of a luck so randomly granted. At least, that was the plan… Stone is a new light hearted fantasy-drama about the purposes we bestow in the objects we own. Written by Stephen Walker, author of cult hits ‘Danny Yates Must Die’ and ‘Mr Landen Has No Brain’.

Cornucopia Radio Podcast 54: Last Gambit in Lisbon
29 Nov 2015 @ 01:41 am

During World War Two, Portugal remained neutral. Many of the people who found themselves there had little choice as to where they might live, work or even survive. Among those who had had little choice was Alexander Alekhine, the World Chess Champion. Alexander is a man looking for a life away from sitting alone in his hotel room, with nothing but a chess board on a table and dinner in his lap. He is looking for inspiration, looking for his muse and ultimately; a way to return to his previous glory. And perhaps he has found it...

Cornucopia Radio Podcast 51: Radio Fore Extra
2 Apr 2015 @ 03:01 am

Welcome back to the continuing story of “Radio Fore”; the secret, long forgotten mothballed sister station for ‘Radio 4?. It was supposed to be a fresh start, a bolder, less middle-class approach to talk radio, but it all went terribly wrong. Now, in the basement passages of Broadcasting House stalks a lumpen, ghoulish, benighted creature, once known as ‘Radio Fore’, the ill-shapen bastard offspring of its elder sibling. However, some of the recorded shows occasional leak into the public domain…

Across the galaxy, a great evil empire has arisen. One which threatens the existence of every living creature in the entire cosmos.
