One Incredibly Fun Summer6 décembre 2003

This collection of 12 episodes from Adventures in Odyssey covers the first summer of the long running kid's radio drama. It contains lots of humor and suspense as the gang in Odyssey face a summer they won't forget. The set starts off with the two part "Family Vacation," which introduces the Barclay family as they try to take a vacation to Florida. "The Day Independence Came" launches Irwin Springer back in time to the American Revolution in the days before the Imagination Station. "Stormy Weather" finds Connie trying to talk her way into visiting California to get away from the Christians in Odyssey as a huge storm is approaching town. The hilarious "VBS Blues" tells the story of Ned Lewis trying to put on a respectable VBS program with a group of guys who are more interested in creating problems then in actually learning anything from the Bible. "KYDS Radio" was the very first time they toyed with the idea of a radio station in Whit's End. It didn't come back until later, but an interesting look at the beginnings of an idea. And some funny stuff along the way. "The highs will be in the lows of the uppers." The gang always learns valuable lessons from "Camp What-a-Nut," and the first visit is no exception. And the cliffhanger between the parts is a real doozie. The two part "Case of the Secret Room" finds Whit and Tom Riley's niece trying to solve the mystery of the skeleton in the basement of Whit's End. Whit tells Jack and Lucy the story of Jonah and the whale ("Big fish. Whatever.") in "Return to the Bible Room." The collection ends appropriately enough with "The Last Great Adventure of the Summer." This episode finds Terry Johnston learning something new about his dad as they are chased by spies. I still remember listening to these episodes as a kid every week that summer. And this collection has gotten plenty of play time over the years. The stories are entertaining no matter how many times you've heard them, and lots of lines still get a laugh from me, even as I say it along with the characters. Any one looking for a good story or a little of the early years of Odyssey will love this set.
