Album Notes
Derek Turner in IMAGINATION THEATRE was a 2009 Nominee - Just Plain Folks Awards - STORYTELLING ALBUM OF THE YEAR.
"IMAGINATION THEATRE" is written and produced by the prolific Jim French, whose works are found on the air, throughout the globe.  Heard on over 200 radio stations in the U.S., IMAGINATION THEATRE also airs in Canada, Australia, Europe, and on XM Satellite Radio. Featuring French's writing/producing talent, as well as casts of top-notch radio personalities, this CD contains 3 suspenseful examples of Turner's enduring contributions to the art of acting.  We think these "movies for your mind" will likely satisfy those who know drama.
Recorded in front of live studio audiences of at least 400 in one take, the pressure to perform equals that of old-time radio dramas.  This collection features episodes similar to, but not borrowing from the situations presented in Rod Serling's "THE TWILIGHT ZONE" series.
---In the first show, "...but The Flesh is Weak," Derek Turner plays The Abbott.  It delivers an unorthodox warning about the use of strong street-drugs, and with a twist.
---The second mysterious presentation, "Quirk," stars Turner as Dr. Loveland.  It's a plea for society to have compassion upon those less fortunate than "normal" individuals.  Both actor Mark Wayne's and news media great, Susan Hutchison's, characters are left perplexed as to where to turn next.
---And lastly, the third tale, "The Great God Donald," stars Turner in the role of Albert Coletti. It co-stars both WKRP IN CINNCINATTI's Richard Sanders (weatherman, Les Nessman) and NORTHERN EXPOSURE's Peg Phillips (Ruth-Ann).  The story of a man who never quite psychologically grew up, and, just so happens to believe that he's.........God!
If sitting on the end of your chair, or hanging on every word of dialogue, as it unfolds, is your brand of entertainment, then IMAGINATION THEATRE is the radio series CD for you.
Derek Turner is a multi-faceted talent.  He contributes to the fields of film, television, and radio. He acts, directs, produces, and if that's not enough, you can find his musical composition and lyric writing abilities here at  Turner's CD, "DREAMING" is performed by Seattle's psychedeliChristian, end-times warning, studio ensemble, REPETEN.  Dreaming is a 3 song release, and aptly priced.  It's down-tempo, psychedelic pop, which you'll find is easy on the ears.

"PIMPY" This 12-minute, black and white short was filmed in 1983.   Brought to you by CARMICHAEL FILMS, this MULTI-international-film-festival-AWARD-WINNING story of an "Odd, but pleasant young man," is endearingly unique.  Turner plays Pimpy's father HEMMY, while Jon Blackstone plays the title role, PIMPY.

Turner's comedy film short, "IT CAME FROM THE LABOR POOL" won Best Film Short by Audience Decision for 2010's 48-Hour Film Project.  DT plays lead role, VAN SASKIA.  [click link on left of page]  7 mins.

Dear CD Baby Consumer:
Derek Turner is a flexible actor, or should we say, many flexible actors? If you tune into Imagination Theater, on your local station, you'll find Turner playing a great variety of parts. Always, as sincere a performance as one could ask for.

Often the listener gets the impression, that perhaps he performs multiple roles in shows. Without credit acknowledgment. Maybe without any credit at ALL, in certain episodes. Who knows? With this actor, you'll find it quite possible.

I.T. writer, Jim French keeps the audience riveted with his ingenious, original ideas about key moral issues, and Derek is quick to pick up on the nuances Jim intends to put out there.

Want to make that trip to Grandma's a little less stagnant? This collection will fill the ticket. Believe me.
