I had a note from an old friend David Bischoff that tipped me to an
interesting series of radio broadcasts called "This is Pulp" on BBC 7.
Dave is a science fiction writer who has collected and traded Manhunt
and similar crime digests for years. Here is Dave's note:
This week, BBC 7 radio is running a great series of short story
dramatic readings of "pulp" crime stories.
Essentially, this really aren't stories from Pulp Magazines, rather
hard-boiled stories from the digests.
For instance, the first one was a Jack Ritchie story from MANHUNT.
The second was a Gil Brewer story.
The broadcasts are saved and put up as files that last for a week.
I'd save them but my radio recorder is broken!
Started yesterday and will continue on to the end of the week.
