SUNDAY, February 14th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME at Baker Street!

Tea Time continues its sojourn at Crazy Eights on LEA 9 with with the next adventure from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's collection "The Return of Sherlock Holmes"


THIS WEEK: The Adventure of the Norwood Builder

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are visited by "the unhappy John Hector McFarlane", a young lawyer from Blackheath who has been accused of murdering one of his clients, a builder called Jonas Oldacre. McFarlane explains to Holmes that Oldacre had come to his office only the day before and asked him to draw up his will in legal language. McFarlane saw to his surprise that Oldacre was making him the sole beneficiary, and heir to a considerable bequest at that. McFarlane could not imagine why. This business took McFarlane to Oldacre's house in Norwood where some documents had to be examined for legal purposes leading to the even more unimaginable - murder!

Corwyn Allen, Kayden Oconnell, John Morland and Caledonia Skytower present, live in voice.

SUNDAY, February 7th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME at Baker Street

He's baaaaack . . . .

And so are Corwyn, Kayden, John and Caledonia.  They've taken up residence in 221B Baker Street, at Crazy Eights on LEA 9 to present "The Return of Sherlock Holmes" from February to May.

TODAY: "The Adventure of the Empty House"
In April 1894, Watson (now a widower) checks 427 Park Lane where a young gambler, the Honorable Ronald Adair, was shot in a closed room on the 30th of March. He bumps into a wizened old book collector, who follows him home to his Kensington practice study then drops his disguise – it is Holmes. He's alive!

Join the crew in the "Baker Street Lounge" for this new journey, and settle down with a fresh cuppa.  The chairs are still comfy!

Presented Live in voice.

WEDNESDAY, February 3rd at 7pm: More from SILENCE OF THE LOONS

Okay, maybe not all of them are silent!
"The Silence of the Loons" is a wildly inventive and often hilarious collection of short mysteries, written by thirteen of Minnesota's finest crime writers.

Challenged with a list of clues to work from (they had to include a minimum number chosen from a list of eight), these talented authors weave tales that reviewers call, "the perfect calling card for Minnesota's formidable roster of crime writers - polite, tight and lethal."  and a "creative literary smorgasbord" to "satisfy your short story cravings on a dark winter night".

"Who would be a mermaid fair,
Singing alone, combing her hair
Under the sea, in a golden curl
With a comb of pearl, on a throne?
~ Alfred Lord Tennyson
