    Soul Vaccination - Thursday - August 26th - 6 to 8 pm - The Music of Dusty Springfield - Hosts: Jenny Freeman with guest, Brett Hartenbach
    August 26th, 2010

    Tonight on Soul Vaccination, we’ll be playing the music of Mary Isabel Catherine Bernadette O’Brien, better known as Dusty Springfield.  A British singer, she was one of the most notable white soul artists in the swinging sixties.  Her recording of Son of a Preacher Man (originally offered to and turned down by Aretha Franklin) is just killer.  It knocked me out how it used in the soundtrack of Pulp Fiction - nearly 30 years after it was recorded.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpEpKHi-kRk

     Brett Hartenbach has pulled together the music for this show and will be joining me tonight in the studio!

     Soul Vaccination tonight from 6-8 for the music of Dusty Springfield. 

     Only on WSCA-LP, Portsmouth Community Radio, 106.1 FM on your radio dial and streaming worldwide from www.portsmouthcommunityradio.org.  –Jenny Freeman

    Audio Theatre - Tuesday - August 24th - 6-8 pm - Strawbery Banke Crafty Kids Present “Charlie the Caterpillar” - More!
    August 23rd, 2010

    MC900339866[1]

    The first 45  minutes of tonight’s program will be dedicated to Audio Theatre for youngsters.  First up will be our 2010 production of “Charlie the Caterpillar” performed by thirteen children who attended the Strawbery Banke Crafty Kids program during the week of August 2nd to the 6th.

    This story is an Audio Theatre adaptation of a short story by Dom DeLuise and features a cast of 7 to 9 year olds in the acting roles as well as providing narration and sound effects.  The program was recorded at the Stoodley Tavern Education Center on August 5th, 2010. 

      The children spent the whole day learning all about Audio Theatre, it’s history, production techniques and their favorite topic, sound effects!   Then they produced a play for your listening enjoyment.   Don’t miss this 15 minute performance… it is a lot of fun and the kids are sooooo cute!  Great job to one and all!

    Lets Pretend

    Then continuing with Audio Theatre for Children, the most popular children’s show on radio was Nila Mack’s “Let’s Pretend”  which was on the air for over 30 years producing hundreds of programs.  Tonight we will hear a fairy tale that answers the question “Why is the Sea Salty?”… rather appropriate for our location!

    HowardDuff_SamSpade

    Then, for adults, Howard Duff stars in one of our favorite detective series “The Adventures of Sam Spade.”  Tonight’s episode was originally broadcast on April 10th, 1949 and is entitled “The Stopped Watch Caper.”

    Remember…as Sam tells his clients, “Sam Spade doesn’t work for his health, but he is a man of principles, so you can pay him the rest later!”

    bobrayII

    Then, from their WHDH years, Bob Elliot and Ray Goulding in “Bob and Ray” from November 13, 1945… and this show features a skit entitled “The Adventures of Sam Shovel”… a very funny parody of “The Adventures of Sam Spade.”

    Consider this a personal invitation to join host John Lovering for two hours of Audio Theatre…. a time to tune your imagination and reflect back on what was a simpler time of life.   Listen locally at 106.1 fm or streaming live online at www.wscafm.org click on “Listen Now.”

    August 20th, 2010

    donald-lonsway

    Originally broadcast on July 27th, this hour long program featuring Vietnam veteran, Guest Don Lonsway (photo),  offers one of the most compelling and dramatic programs you will hear on any radio station.

    Don relates his 34 year battle with PTSD in vivid and emotional detail that had those of us in the studio mesmerized and  teary-eyed at the same time.

    If you are a veteran or know someone who is, DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW.

    Hosts Ronnie Tomanio, John Ewebanks, and Ali Ketcham spend sixty minutes with a man who has a story to tell that will open your heart and mind to an affliction that has struck so many of our veterans.

    Audio Theatre - Tuesday - August 17th - 6 to 8 pm - “Wild West: Night - Host: John Lovering
    August 15th, 2010
    Saddle up, pardner!   Tonight we hit the dusty trail and cross the mighty river…. which is a long way from the “dusty” trail… and we spend the night in the Wild West on Portsmouth Community Radio’s Audio Theatre.Jack Mather stars as the Cisco Kid…. the Mexican Robin Hood.  He rides his trusty horse Diablo while his partner, Pancho, is aboard Loco. The Cisco Kid is a handsome, hero-type character with an eye for any damsel in distress.  Pancho, well Pancho is focused on food… if this series had been aired 30 years later, he would have been looking for Taco Bell restaurants. Tonight’s Cisco Kid episode is entitled “A Post for Sheriff Fenton,” and we hope they mean a job and not a piece of wood.

     

    John Dehner as Paladin - Have Gun Will Travel

    Next,  John Dehner (above) stars as radio’s  Paladin. He was a man of culture, West Point-educated, literate, with a taste for fine food and clothing… and the theatre. He dressed like a dandy and made his headquarters in the ritzy Hotel Carlton in San Francisco. He was sort of a troubleshooter and private lawman-for-hire.  He was a man of morals and conscience,  and would try to settle disputes without violence whenever possible, but he was not afraid to use his fists or his gun when all else failed.

    His business card read “Have Gun Will Travel”… and the episode you will hear toinght was originally aired on December 21st, 1958 and is entitled “The Hanging Cross.”    “Have Gun Will Travel” is a terrific series…top notch writing and acting combine to make it one of radio’s best Westerns. 

    Conrad_William_Gunsmoke

     William Conrad (above) stars as Matt Dillon in “Gunsmoke.” The classiest and most authentic western series on radio.  The sound effects and music were superb and were totally designed to enhance the excellent storylines.  Tonight’s episode is entitled “The Gypsum Hill Feud” and was first aired onApril 16th, 1955.  Listen in and hear a truly high quality production.

    You are invited to join host John Lovering for “Wild West” night on Tuesday, August 17th from 6 to 8 pm.  Listen live locally at 106.1 fm or online at www.wscafm.org and click on “Listen Now.”    By the way, we will end the evening with a few “Western Classic Songs”…. Rawhide, High Noon, Ghost Riders in The Sky… and a reminder, better bring along an extra canteen of water… things get a little dry in the Wild West!
