Tonight: “The Twilight Zone Ahead of its Time” Radio Show

TONIGHT @ 8:00 pm EST:

THE TWILIGHT ZONE AHEAD OF ITS TIME Night-Light radio show with Pop Culture Man Arlen Schumer: https://www.blogtalkradio.com/night-light/2020/11/08/the-twilight-zone-ahead-of-its-time-with-arlen-schumer

“We can feed the stomach with concentrates. We can supply microfilm for reading, recreation, even movies of a sort. We can pump oxygen in, and waste material out. But there’s one thing we can’t simulate, that’s a very basic need: man’s hunger for companionship. The barrier of loneliness. That’s one thing we haven’t licked yet.”

If those words from the first TWILIGHT ZONE episode sound uncomfortably close to the pandemic quarantining we’re all experiencing now, it’s because creator ROD SERLING (1924-75) was a true visionary, a prescient prophet of the small screen, whose many ZONE episodes dealt with the universal, timeless themes of isolation, loneliness, and solitude.

  1. Sounds like it’s going to be a good show! I’ll put it on my calendar.

    • Thanks, Deborah! It was live last night, so I didn’t give everyone much warning, but I’m checking to see if I can post a link to the show after the fact.

      • Oh that would be great, because I missed it! I did catch some of the Twilight Zone marathon we had running on TV here though.

        I hope to you get a link so I can listen to the show.

  2. I wasn’t able to take advantage of this 🙁

    • I know — as I just mentioned to Deborah, I didn’t give everyone much warning. I’m checking to see if I can post a link to the show after the fact, though.

  3. I also missed it, but not your fault, buddy! 🙂 (wish I had a TZ emoticon!) That would be great if you had a recorded link.

    Pretty cool how you’re up on all-thing Twilight Zone! Thanks for keeping us informed and hope you are doing well, Paul (we are—including my coast-to-coast family)!

  4. I’ve followed Arlen Schumer’s pop culture lectures and presentations for years. He’s a good guy!
