Theater of the Mind is storytelling that creates vivid mental imagery, emotions, and sensations in the listener’s imagination. MentalRadio is immersive storytelling, irony, parody, and satire that uses state-of-the-art sound, voice, and music to create fast-moving storytelling that engages the imagination and invites you to participate with us, making it a collaborative experience.

It was created and produced by Shadoe Stevens, a Radio Hall of Fame Inductee, an award-winning, worldwide personality, and an innovator for radio, television, film, new media, and visual arts. Welcome to a feel-good world one reviewer called "Audio Acid and Spiritual Crack." We call it "The Blinding Smile of the Infinite Better."

MentalRadio and Optimysticals have been here since the beginning of time, secretly unleashing beams of feel-good impulses and buoyant optimism whenever needed. Until now, the Elders of Mental Control – following the governing Doctrines of MentalRadio – have released only finite bundles of optimism in carefully calibrated doses some experts incorrectly exaggerated as: “oodles.”

2020 changed everything. As was foretold by Nostradamus, who, in his book Les Prophéties, predicted, “following a pandemonium, there will the dawning of a time of perfect vision.”

The MentalRadio website and these recordings will reveal everything you need to know in Widescreen, 3D Surround Sound, a movie in Chapters that play in your head with an original soundtrack, and a dimension that opens up between your ears.

MentalRadio presents all this with genetically altered humor, and the ancient principle of Time-Released Mirth.

Time-Released Mirth is not technically humor. It may not make you laugh or even smile, but later, for reasons you might not understand, you may find yourself with a smirk or an unjustifiable grin. This is normal. And it may never happen. That in itself, is funny. What scientists call Humorless Humor.

Then too, when you least expect it, you may be seized with a sense of Spontaneous Optimism, followed by Cloud Nine Euphoria, and what eastern religions call “The 7th Heaven of Tickled Pink.” This elevated state will be accompanied by a funny feeling that everything is going to be okay.

MentalRadio reveals a secret worldwide society founded by Nikola Tesla dedicated to helping mankind based on Wireless Energy Transfer through the use of magnetic fields also called Power Beaming. Look it up.

Tesla originally conceived of Wireless Energy Transfer as a principle for radio waves, microwaves, infrared and light waves, and quickly realized that since everything in the Universe was vibrating at a particular frequency, the principles were also consistent with thoughts, feelings, and the subconscious.

As such, Telepathy was real, Mental Control was vital, and Mental Lubrication could trigger Arousal Waves awakening higher states of consciousness and a happier life.

Such radical thinking was unacceptable in 1893, and like DaVinci embracing mirror writing to hide his scientific ideas from the powerful Roman Catholic Church, Tesla created this underground society with principles based on a search for wisdom and essential Doctrines of Mentology.

These doctrines revolved around this belief: In an unlimited universe, there are limitless possibilities, and the sheer limitlessness of possibilities, guarantees limitless solutions to every impossible problem. His worldwide collaborators, who included Albert Einstein and American author Upton Sinclair, came to be known as “Optimysticals,” a name Tesla believed he created. He was wrong.

Archaeologists in India have recently uncovered scrolls in catacombs beneath a 4,000-year-old Shiva Temple confirming that enlightened masters, great sages called “Optimysticals” and “Knowitalls," have been with us since the dawn of creation. But that’s just part of the story….
