A Long Time Ago Radio (ALTA Radio) is a Star Wars fan-made radio show hosted by Joe Harrison and Silas Carder with sometime guest commentator Andrew Gilbertson. The show is a production of Lion's Mouth Entertainment.
The show has no set release schedule. At the present date, three episodes have been released. While originally intended as a Star Wars program, ALTA Radio shows signs of branching into other major sci-fi genres for it's topics.
Episodes appear to follow an alternating pattern featuring a primary topic, followed by a '.5 episode' with a follow-up topic closely related to the previous episode. However, this pattern only holds for the first four planned episodes and may be coincidental, not planned.
Each show features 1-2 topics. Typically there will also be a few short vignette 'commercials' or skits between topics. Transitions between segments use a door sound effect from the sci-fi program currently being talked about in the episode. Some episodes also feature a pre-recorded commentary segment by guest host Andrew Gilbertson. Average running times are 1-2 hours, but creator Joe Harrison has stated his intent to shorten the length of future episodes.
