"Star Trek" Radio Show Parody "Star Trick" Finally Released!

After nearly a quarter of a century, the "Star Trek" radio show parody, "STAR TRICK", has finally been released to the public. This program, which I wrote and directed, was produced during the hey day of the first Gulf War. Yeah, that war.

My collaborators and I recorded the four episodes over the Spring and Summer of 1991 at the KBOO radio station studios in Portland, Oregon. It was originally part of a weekly far left political radio program, which agreed to air them. However, after just one episode, they cancelled any more plans to air any more episodes. The reason I heard was because they were offended by the sound effect of the toilet flushing. Uh, okay, whatever. In hope of getting the episodes aired on another program, we wound up recording three more. Although there were two more scripts written, it was obvious "Star Trick" was not going to be aired, so we stopped production after only four episodes.

Here at last, are all four of those episodes. The first episode not heard for almost 25 years and the other three never heard at all by the public. I hope you enjoy this trip back in time to a 1991 United States that was part of the long road that has led us to today's police state.
