Our own Craig Wichman portrays Sherlock Holmes in the Quicksilver Radio Theater production of THE SPECKLED BAND. It will be webcast on the internet in
September but you can hear it now at Public Radio Exchange at http://www.prx.org/pieces/25730. You will need to register at the site before listening but it is quick and free. This is
an excellent production by the same group that brought you last year's outstanding audio adaptation of FRANKENSTEIN so please give it a listen.
