Tropical Hot Dog Night

Tropical Hot Dog Night is a radio drama, produced by the ZBS Foundation [1]. It is the nineteenth of the Jack Flanders adventure series and the third of the The Fantastic Voyages of Captain Jack Flanders sub-series. It combines elements of Old-time radio with psychic phenomena, supernatural beings and energies.

Plot

The crew are sailing towards Key Milagro - also known as Key Diablo by inhabitants of the neighbouring islands - where a mysterious fog descends each night and the inhabitants of Key Milagro find the colour draining out of everything and being replaced by a rich, hard-boiled film noir fantasy life. The local crime bookshop owner, Johnny Seven, seems to have the answers but he's more interested in playing than talking. Sometimes however, being dressed to kill is more than just a turn of phrase

Notes & Themes

Part other-worldly tale and part homage to the film noir era of the 1940s and 50s.

Quotes

Dominique: "It's you Jack. You think I'm skinny because you have such a fat head." [2]

Johnny: "You seem like the kind of woman who reads classics...Dostoevsky, Chekov guys like that. It's not the kind of books I sell."
Rose: "You mean books about tough guys?"
Johnny: "That's right."
Rose: "And tough babes who appear helpless and find some sap to buy their sob story and do their dirty work for them and the next thing you know she's skipped out with the dough, he's been framed, she's south of the border sipping Margaritas and the sap is wearing striped suits in the big house. Is that what you mean?"
Johnny: "Er.... why don't you just keep on browsing." [3]

Amanda: "You know, people say, I gotta get some work done but you never hear them say, I gotta get some fun done." [4]
