A Speculation for Public Radio. October Surprise is the tale of a murderer whose career in mayhem can’t be stopped, even by his own death.
Script: Jeff Ward
Production: Union Signal
Union Signal is Jeff Ward and Doug Bost. From their ruined garage, they’ve been producing radio plays that have been broadcast on National Public Radio, Pacifica Radio, and Bavarian State Radio, as well as on local public radio stations across the country and on Joe Bevilacqua’s The Comedy-O-Rama Hour in its first XM Radio incarnation. Their plays have won awards with the BBC and the Midwest Radio Theater Workshop, as well as the Mark Time Award and the Charles Ogle Award. As members of the comedy group Euphobia, Jeff and Doug also write and produce audio sketches that are hilariously short. Performed by a Full Cast.
Doug Bost is a writer living in Brooklyn. His screenplays include Diminished Capacity, Kubuku Rides (This Is It), Focus Group, and Policy of Truth. His radio plays include Dead Man’s Hole, Roadkil, The Dan, and The Bride in the Box. His short stories have been heard on station KCRW’s Unfictional.
Jeff Ward writes radio plays and musicals. He is the author of December 17, The Toad, Georgia, and the hard-hitting, impeccably researched documentaries Dorcus and October Surprise. He wrote the musical Take One and has written jokes for SNL’s Weekend Update.
