The Time Between Special Edition






The Time Between Special Edition

During 1961 and 1962, Walter Dixon created and produced a radio program called The Time Between. Designed for late night radio listening, The Time Between consisted of short vignettes written and narrated by Walter Dixon and complimented by the music of Douglas Duke.

Underpinned by Doug‘s superb musical performance, Walter’s entertaining slice-of-life stories created a relaxing nostalgic mood. The listening audience loved it!

Walter and Doug had a lot of fun working together during those years. On one occasion Walter wrote a rather risqué story which he knew could never be aired over the radio. He presented it to Doug and they decided to record it in a Time Between format just “for kicks.” Ed Mitchell, Walter’s favorite sound engineer, joined them. Without benefit of a rehearsal and, in a single “take,” the three men produced an electrifying presentation of a story called Duval Street.

Duval Street lay unnoticed in Walter’s large collection of professional audiotapes for about 45 years. It was recently discovered by Sheron Dixon as she worked on the task of digitalizing the large collection of audio and visual tapes left to her by her late husband.

This Special Edition of Walter Dixon’s Time Between Radio program contains segments taken from volumes 1, 3, 11 and 17 in the Time Between series. Together they create a tropical ambience in which the steamy content of Walter’s Duval Street story can best be told.
