RE: RARA-AVIS: Philly Exiles and References: TOO DEAD TO SWING

From: Todd Mason (
Date: 15 Feb 2002

The longform audio drama (on sale at BoucherCon), TOO DEAD TO SWING, features a number of characters with ties to late-Depression Philadelphia. Also notably, the cover painting for the tape package was reprinted on the March EQMM cover. to see the cover, etc.

The play as performed here has a few rough edges that need to be shorn, and one of the cheesier-sounding British accents I've heard sported by one key character, but suffices as a pretty-good medium-boiled, mildly noirish, perhaps too-guessable mystery with decent, even Cole-Porterish, original jazz-pop songs mixed in. (Murders during an all-woman swing band's tour just prior to US entry in WW2.) TM
