In January 2011, KSU Owl Radio debuted a new radio drama series that Kennesaw State University student writer and creator Tony Sarrecchia told Patch was "cursed" due to a series of unfortunate events surrounding its production, including blown hard drives and car troubles.
A year later, the curse seems to have been lifted with the "Harry Strange Radio Drama" winning the 2012 Student Audio Best of Fest award for its episode, "The Blink of an Eye.”
According to an announcement on Owl Radio's Facebook page, the show—along with Sarrecchia and student producer Bre Ahearn—will be profiled in the Broadcast Education Association Festival of Media Arts in Las Vegas this April. The festival received almost 1,000 submissions with less than 200 entries accepted from 80 colleges and universities around the country.
“Harry Strange” tells the story of a private investigator whose beat in the town of Night Falls takes him into the supernatural, pitting him against demons, vampires and the occasional renegade priest.
You can catch the Season II Premiere Sunday, Feb. 12, at 10 p.m. on ksuradio.com. Regular episodes air Sundays at 10 p.m. with encore presentations on Saturdays at midnight. Podcasts will be available the following Fridays.
