It Was a Dark and Stormy Night: A Melodrama

Air Date: October 9, 2012, rebroadcast November 20, 2012

For this week’s episode of ProBoat Radio, we assembled a stellar cast of characters to present the first, and possibly last, episode of ProBoat Radio Readers Theatre: “It Was a Dark and Stormy Night at Boat Shop University.”

Listen Now!

Recorded live at IBEX 2012 in Louisville, Kentucky, this melodrama has it all, including suspense, romance, evil twins, a dead body, alien abduction, and of course, a dark and stormy night.

Inspired by responses to the ProBoat E-Training blog post Shall We Dance? (Or Build Boats), this is a radio show you won’t soon forget, no matter how hard you try.
