The Beams! Radio Fiction for Kids

From Space Radio Productions LLC | 31:25

The first episode of a kids' "spacecast" focused on the wacky, outer space adventures of the fictional Beams family!

Beamssrmpro_small The Beams Are On! Welcome to the galaxy's first "spacecast" broadcast live from a Super Satellite 750 million miles from Earth! The Beams! is a radio show co-hosted by 10-year-old Brenna Beam and her 8-year-old brother, Baxter. The Beam kids discover a way to transmit to Earth while their genius scientist parents work on top secret projects. And that's where the adventures begin... Produced with professional actors and high-quality sound effects, The Beams! "fills the space between kids' ears" with fun and imagination not heard since the radio dramas of the mid-twentieth century. In the 30-minute pilot episode of the The Beams!, Earthlings aged 6-12 will meet Brenna and Baxter, their lovable robot, Comet, and a cast of wacky outer space characters that includes a saucy cook named Doreen, everyone's favorite house band, The Rock-Its, and the evil (and perhaps misunderstood) satellite patroller, Mudge. The pilot episode has six chapters ranging in length from 2-9 minutes long. Fans of the show can visit our web site at TheBeamsAreOn.com to get bonus audio material, download Comet's "Trade-a-Joke" cards, and even send email to Brenna and Baxter.
