    Soul Vaccination - Thursday - 6-8 PM - Host: Jenny Freeman
    June 30th, 2011

    I’ll confess, I love the shuffle setting on my mp3 – the random jumping from one artist to the next sometimes brings a freshness to a song that I might not have noticed if the song were buried into the full CD.  But tonight is three-fer Thursday – I’ll be playing three cuts by the same artist back to back.  It will give us all a chance to relax into the artist’s style and listen a little more deeply.  No particular style or decade – but it will be soul. 

     So be sure to tune in to Soul Vaccination tonight from 6-8pm for a dose of what you need.

    Audio Theatre - Tuesday - June 28 - 6-8 pm - Host: John Lovering - Featured Shows: “Duffy’s Tavern” / “Nightbeat” / “Suspense” /
    June 26th, 2011

    Starring Ed Gardner as Archie… who wrote and co-created the series …that was on radio for a decade from 1941-51.  This show was the basis for Norman Lear’s television hit series, “Archie’s Place” starring Carroll O’Connor.

    A sitcom set in NYC…. third avenue… Duffy’s Tavern… where an ensemble cast of strange and funny characters had a weekly banter with Archie.

    The show opens with “When Irish Eyes Are Smilin’” played on a honky-tonk piano… a phone call where Archie talks to Duffy… though we never hear Duffy’s voice….. and then the episode begins.

    This show is always funny.. especially given the malapropisms that Archie uses consistently throughout the dialog… much like Carroll O’Connor did in “All in the Family” and “Archie’s Place.”   Tonight’s episode is entitled “Hiring Slappsie Maxie Rosenblum” and is from 2/23/1951.  30 min.

     

    Starring Frank Lovejoy…as Randy Stone, a tough and streetwise reporter who worked the nightbeat for the Chicago Star, looking for human interest stories.  He meets an assortment of people, many of them frightened, and sometimes he can help them, sometimes not.

    This was a quality show and stands up extremely well, even today.  Lovejoy’s portrayal of Rand Stone as tough guy with humanity was perfect.

    The show ran from 1950 to 1952 on NBC.  Tonight’s episode is entitled “Sanctuary” and is from June 22, 1951.  30 min.

    Broadcast from 1942 to 1962, this was one of the premier drama programs of the Golden Age of Radio. It was subtitled “radio’s outstanding theatre of thrills” and focused on suspense-thriller-type scripts, usually featuring leading Hollywood actors of the era.  There were about 950 episodes broadcast and about 900 of them have been preserved.

    The series was on CBS and ran from 30 minutes to an hour at different times during it’s twenty-year run.

    The show is hosted by “the man in black”…played by Joseph Kearns or Ted Osborne.  The series was sustained by CBS for the first two years and eventually was sponsored by Roma Wines and Autolite Spark Plugs.  Tonight’s episode is entitled; “Thieves Fall Out” and is from November 16, 1943    30min.

    Audio Theatre - Tuesday - June 21st - 6-8 pm - Host: John Lovering - Featured Shows: “Richard Diamond - Private Detective” - “The Life of Riley” - “Abbott and Costello” - “The Couple Next Door”
    June 19th, 2011

     

    Dick Powell stars as Richard Diamond, Private Detective in an episode entitled “Insurance Matters” from August 23, 1950.  Powell played the character from 1949 to 1953 on NBC.  Richard Diamond was a quick witted PI with a sense of humor and considerable musical talent.  The script is exellent, written by Blake Edwards (Pink Panther series and many others).

    William Bendix plays Chester A. Riley in this The Life of Riley episode entitled “Junior is in Love” from January 27, 1950.  Digger O’Dell, the friendly undertaker, played by actor John Brown, will be shoveling his puns and jokes… and all in all this sitcom is as funny today as it was when it first aired.  Of course, at some point in the show, Riley has to utter his famous catchphrase, “What a revoltin’ development this is!”…

     

    Bud Abbott and Lou Costello star in their comedy variety show from December 9, 1948.  This half-hour program features routines between Abbott and Costello as well as a musical number or two and skit with the guest star.  The show was on radio from 1942 to 1950, when it made the transfer to television.  Their routines always used a “play on words”…. most everyone knows the famous “Who’s On First?” routine, which is probably the most famous example of the type of comedy for which this duo is best remembered.

    Finally, Peg Lynch and Alan Bunce retun with The Couple Next Door, a 15 minute, five-day per week series that featured situations with whic every couple could identify.  Tonight’s episode is entitled “The Marriage Bet” and is from January 27, 1958.

    Join host, John Lovering, for two hours of some of the Golden Age of Radio’s best shows.  “Escape” from the news and problems of the day… just for a while.  Put your feet up and listen to comedy and mystery on tonight’s Audio Theatre.   Listen locally at 106.1 FM or streaming live online at www.wscafm.org and click on “Listen Now” at the top of the page.  Consider this your formal invitation.

    Radiogazette - Friday - 9-10am - Host: Ann Haggart - Feature: April Mulkern - Story about Portsmouth Museum of Art’s “Street AKA Museum” exhibit.
    June 16th, 2011

    On Friday June 17th, 9-10 am,  Ann Haggart’s show Radiogazette will feature a local news story compiled by WSCA DJ April Mulkern (Stage Door - Saturdays, 8-10 am) about Porstmouth Museum of Art’s “STREET AKA Museum” exhibit.

    If you have been around downtown Portsmouth in the past month, you have probably noticed a bunch of murals painted on buildings housed on Marcy Street, Bow Street, Pleasant Street and many others buildings on various streets around town. The murals that are a part of this exhibit have polarized the Portsmouth Community into those who appreciate and enjoy the street art and to those who do not appreciate the art.

    Tune in hear all about this exhibit and  reactions from Portsmouth citizens about “STREET AKA Museum.”

    June 12th, 2011

      

    Inner Sanctum starts us off with our “Horror-Thriller Night” Program.   The episode is “Dead Man’s Holiday” and it was originally aired on September 18, 1950.  Your host, Raymond (Paul McGrath) greets you as the creaking door makes its spooky appearance.  Prepare yourself for another ghostly tale accompanied by Raymond’s sickly puns!   Inner Sanctum ran from 1941 to 1952 producing over 520 episodes.  It was a premier horror series on radio.

    Escape is up next… with “The Fourth Man” from August 18, 1947.    Producer, Norman MacDonald (Gunsmoke) utilizes the talents of Paul Frees and William Conrad in another episode of “ESCAPE.”  Our protagonist is in dire straits… all wrapped up in the supernatural.  Tonight’s episode stars William Johnstone… and will definitely give you an opportunity to “get away from it all… Escape!”

    From the famous Lights Out series comes our own Audio Theatre Players in “Coffin in Studio B”. 

     

    This episode of “Lights Out” that was originally written by Wyllis Cooper in 1934 and aired on July 13, 1946.  Our local actors got together in the WSCA studio on July 22nd, 2008 and performed the script live for our listening audience.  Our players (l-r in above photo) include: James Darling, James Sears, Chuck Curtis, Dan Comly and Brian Gregg.   Melanie Lovering (photo below) did the manual sound effects.  Audio editing and mixing was done by John Lovering.   This story takes place in Studio B of a radio station where the actors are rehearsing a murder mystery one last time before they go on the air.   They are interrupted by a strange visitor who happens to be selling coffins!
