"ONE OF THOSE DAYS" premiered on National Public Radio and later received a Media Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Written, produced, and distributed to over 60 public radio stations by Sean Connolly & XYZ Productions the series runs to 218 episodes, all of which will appear here on a daily basis. These audio cartoons follow a strict format, much like a comic strip has a particular look and style. First listeners should listen the the sample of four consecutive episodes to catch the drift of the story line and the usage of puns and how the characters move throughout the episodes. The procedure is always the same, again as the comic strips move from panel to panel. Click on TODAY'S EPISODE or on SAMPLE EPISODES.

Selected Works

Literary Nonsense
Strange tales strangely told in concise twists and turns with improbable events and resolved through odd happenings and by slippery detectives who can't wait to get back to the beach.
Xavier y Zungie steals literary phrases and lifts foggy abstractions from elegant magazines combining both with his own sense of the absurd to confront the nonsense we experience every day.
Satire
The history and antics of the gods and goddesses who dwell on Thorn Prick Peak and how they created the universe and provided guidance for the people on the earth through the forecasting Icons found in The Orbitology.
Fiction
"A spell-binding tour de force of diabolical dialogue"–
–Barry Gifford
"In vino verbosity, as they say," wisecracks one of Sean Connolly's main characters in this slightly surreal, darkly comic novel about the search for constancy in a very inconstant world. Charles and Garth are downing drinks at the Black Dog Inn, but, in a dramatic technique reminiscent of the classic film My Dinner with Andre, their dialogue transports us far beyond those walls through the adventures of rogues and rapscallions in such far-flung locales as Baltimore, New York, Key West, and ultimately Cambridge, Massachusetts.
"One of Those Days" A series of zany radio cartoons, each episode running about two minutes, staring a nameless dog down by the fireplug, his master Joey The First, his wife, Delicatessen Jill, her companion JoJo The Chicken, and all their neighbors who love to party out on the streets.
