For some time now, we’ve been wanting to do more storyhunting and storytelling as part of The Big Something. After thinking about it for a while, we decided we could start gathering up stories, share them here as we gather them, and then put together a pilot radio program that would reflect the spirit of The Big Something while expanding our range of possibilities.

The Radio Program we want to put together, it should be noted, does not yet exist. However, in this brief teaser you can listen to Craig Richardson and myself discuss how croissants and an epiphanic thunderclap led to the decision to put together a radio program based on a story about Noel’s mother’s 1967 date with Lorne Greene.

And that’s where you come in. We need you to help us build this Lego Galactic Starship. Be sure to come back tomorrow for full details on how you can contribute your stories The Big Something Radio Program.

Update: Listen to Part I of the Big Something Radio Program HERE, Part II HERE and Part III HERE.

    Guys, thanks for making me laugh in the middle of my workday, and reminding me that in 1993, at a sci-fi convention in Atlanta, Ga., David Prowse invited me for drinks and dinner after his duties were over for the day. And yes, I went.

    But Lorne Greene would have been way better. Can’t wait to hear your mom’s story because for the life of me I can’t remember any of the stories Mr. Prowse told me (and to be fair, three other male guests) about the Star Wars set.
