, the world’s only full time geek culture radio station, presents the world premiere broadcast of The Adventures of Rick Deckard. It airs June 22 at 7 pm Pacific / 10 pm Eastern, and again June 25 at 5 pm Pacific / 8 pm Eastern. The show is being aired to coincide with the 35th anniversary of the release of Ridley Scott’s 1982 film Blade Runner.

The daring radio drama retells the story of the 1982 film Blade Runner as the noir it always wanted to be. Presented as a 1948 radio show, the film is recreated in audio by the Lux Theater. It’s in the style of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler, featuring the top actors of the day – Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Vincent Price, Peter Lorre, Edward G. Robinson and more.

The Lux Theater

Originally recorded live in 2006 at the LosCon 33 convention in Los Angeles, Deckard is realized on stage by a cast of 8 performers called the Lux Theater, recreating 20 golden-age actors, with live foley sound effects and in front of an audience in the style of radio dramas long gone. Although it’s formatted as an old-time adventure serial, The Adventures of Rick Deckard comes full circle as this will be its first actual broadcast on radio.
