WALKING THE NIGHTBEAT

Ebook Cover Art: Douglas Klauba

My name is Bobby Nash. I walk the Nightbeat.

Radio Archives has announced the release of Nightbeat: Night Stories, a collection of six stories based on the Old Time Radio series Nightbeat, which starred Frank Lovejoy as Randy Stone, a reporter who works the night beat for The Chicago Star.

I’m excited to be part of this new anthology collection, which is available for purchase now as an ebook (Kindle, Nook, iTunes and RadioArchives.com) and as an audio book. This is my first story to be turned into an audio book so I’m doubly excited and eager to hear it performed by the talented Michael C. Gwynne.

I had fun stepping into Randy Stone’s shoes. The story for this one took on a life of it’s own and I was surprised when it didn’t go the direction I was planning to take it. I love it when that happens. Once it’s been out awhile I’ll be able to talk about that without revealing spoilers.

I hope you’ll check out Nightbeat: Night Stories.
