This coming Monday, September 8 at 8 pm, Sandbox Radio Live will be staging the live recording of the second to last episode of my noir angel radio serial Markheim at ACT in thrilling downtown Seattle. (You can listen to the next to next to last episode of Markheim here.) In addition to the cool angeological stylings of Markheim, we have some very hot numbers on the playlist. I’m particularly looking forward to:
- An original story from Steven Scher, formerly of KUOW,
- Cliff Mass dropping his weather wisdoms,
- Special musical guests Modern Angels,
- And not in the least leastly last, Scot Auguston taking a breather from his Cousin Katie serial to offer us another installation from his collection of forest animal detective stories. This one’s called “Taxi to Hell.”
The Holler. It’s where the forest dumps its undesirables. Creatures ruined by disappointment and drink. Lives piled high with regrets and best intentions. Somewhere in this thicket of crushed hope and destroyed dreams was a juvenile delinquent owl. Lost, afraid, possibly dangerous. First stop was to look up an old deer friend of mine, Jane Doe.
The Stranger calls Sandbox Radio Live “Crackling...electrifying...fresh, joyful and awesome.” So you gotta guess we’re at least one or two of those things.

And now, a little teaser taste from the penultimate Markheim:
MARKHEIM: Take the money and run, flip.
FLIP: Where did you come from?
MARKHEIM: Where in hell do you think?
MARKHEIM: Whatever you wanna call it.
FLIP: The garden was empty when I came in. I had to have seen you.
MARKHEIM: I can’t tell you what to see. I can tell you that you have to run. Far. Right now they say they hate the carpenter, but that will change. And when it does, they’ll turn on you. Take that money and go. Far.
FLIP: I have a knife, stranger.
MARKHEIM: Good, you’ll need it.
