Lol

Well see, it’s like a watch along, but instead of watching something with pictures you simply listen to audio with a group of people and talk to each other with a chat while you’re listening at the same time.

Oh, I am in! This is a great idea, especially with DC story podcasts rumored to be coming to Spotify soon.

Welcome aboard @HubCityQuestion

While this will be something a little different at least at first, thanks for pointing to the Spotify new DC Comics programming, that looks very exciting!

I’m guessing from the cover image that this is going to be the Superman radio serial… I hope I’m right because chatting along to that is an incredibly fun idea.

Other potentially great Listen-Alongs: the Audible adaptation of Sandman, and the DC Icons audiobooks (Batman: Nightwalker, Catwoman: Soulstealer, Wonder Woman: Warbringer, etc.)

Sweet. BTW, I have located some scripts from the Supeman radio show.

This should be fun, I can imagine that I’m back in 1940s, sitting in front of a radio and listen to Superman! :grinning:
And NO I’m not that old! LOL!

I think we’ll have some real fun with these @Reaganfan78 !

Those old time tube wooden tall radio sets were really something! AM radio too, but a nice bassy sound at times.

Finding AM stations late at night in the winter when the waves came from far away was called “DXing” at the time. Not sure if anyone does that any more though.

I didn’t know it had a name. I remember as a kid, we’d be coming up from Southern to Northern California and we couldn’t get anything on the radio back then but we got those in murder mysteries. They were great. Leaving everything up to your imagination, hanging on every word. So much fun.
