Rocker, writer, nerd and nice guy James R. Tramontana has launched a serial comedy science fiction podcast called Ace Tucker Space Trucker.
The weekly podcast follows the exploits of rock n roll roadie, Ace Tucker, on his quest to save Elvis Presley, the not-dead King of Rock n Roll, (and the entire galaxy) from unspeakable evil.
Ace Tucker Space Trucker owes its existence to groundbreaking serial fiction podcasts like Serial and Welcome to Night Vale as well as classic rock n roll and sci-fi satire like This is Spinal Tap and Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
It is unique in the world of radio drama podcasts because it is written, recorded, voiced, edited and scored by one individual dude: James R. Tramontana (writer of the comics Vikings vs. Unicorns, Red Hot Rebellion: The Mission and the critically acclaimed, The Way, published in Walking Dead letterer Rus Wooton’s horror anthology, Dark Reaches).
Ace Tucker is a man who was raised in outer space and taught how to be human by a Russian cyborg chimpanzee. Ace earns a living as a rock-and-roll roadie and cargo hauler for the greatest band in the galaxy, Mustache Supernova. His world is turned upside down the night he meets Elvis Presley, the very not-dead King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. When Ace saves Elvis from an alien assassin he must travel to Memphis, Tennessee to restore Presley’s health. But things are not what they seem at Elvis’s pastoral home, Graceland. There, Ace makes a discovery that has the power to shape the future (and potentially undo the past).
Ace Tucker Space Trucker is a serial science fiction comedy adventure podcast written, recorded, voiced, scored and edited by James R. Tramontana. It is a free weekly podcast available worldwide through iTunes and all major podcast sites. Special “director’s cut” versions of each episode are available at www.acetuckerspacetrucker.com. Each uncensored premium episode on the Ace Tucker Space Trucker website comes with original music used in each episode.
