    Audio Theatre - Tuesday - November 1st - 6-8 PM - Host: John Lovering - Featured Shows: Laugh, I Thought I’d Die / The Ghost That Giggled / Figure in the Photograph / Superman
    October 30th, 2011

     

     

    Mystery House  returns with an episode entitled  “Laugh, I Thought I’d Die.”  Be part of the audience as the staff and writers of the Mystery House publishing company perform an audio adaptation of a possible novel that they will publish, depending upon the audience reaction to this production.  A unique concept makes for some very interesting stories.  Circa 1942. 

     

    Vincent Price returns as Simon Templar in The Saint.  Tonight’s cleverly written and superbly acted show is entitled “The Ghost that Giggled,” from September 17, 1950.  Once you hear the quality and entertainment in The Saint, you will be looking forward to the next episode.

    Brett Reid is the Green Hornet and Robert Hall is the star. Tonight’s action-packed adventure is entitled “Figure in the Photograph” from April 16, 1945.  This show was on the air for 16 years and originated from Detroit’s WXYZ radio who also produced The Lone Ranger and Sgt. Preston of the Yukon.  Join Brett and his sidekick, Kato, as they zip about town in The Green Hornet.

    We finish tonight’s show with The Adventures of Superman starring Clayton “Bud” Collyer.  Tonight is Part 2 of “The Happyland Amusement Park” adventure.  The caped crusader appears most every week on Audio Theatre…. blue tights and all!  Look!  Up in the Sky!  It’s a bird…. you know the rest!

    Join John Lovering for two hours of classic radio programming.  Sit back, relax and let your imagination paint a story that is unique to you.  The art from of audio theatre is truly fun… so give it a try from 6 to 8 pm every Tuesday on Portsmouth Community Radio Audio Theatre at 106.1 FM locally or streaming live online at www.wscafm.org and click on the “Listen Online” at the top menu.  Oh, and bring a friend to the “theatre.”

    This Saturday 8AM-10AM October 29th on Stage Door there will be a special Halloween inspired double header of two well known radio dramas from Orson Welles’s theatrical company Mercury Theatre.  The first will be the infamous “The War of the Worlds” radio drama which was originally aired on October 30, 1938 and reportedly caused a widespread panic since many listeners believed the story was “real.”

    The second will be the first radio drama produced by the Mercury Theatre -  Bram Stoker’s  “Dracula” which originally aired on Jul 11, 1938. Listening to these radio dramas will put you right into the Halloween spirit. Join WSCA DJ Robin Nitschelm, who is filling in for your regular host April Mulkern, for this Halloween spectacular!

    Women Plus - Saturday - October 15 - 2-4 pm - Host: Jo Ann Paradise - Special Show - Women Singing OUT! presents: “Where I Live: A Breast Cancer Oratorio”
    October 13th, 2011

     

    Jo Ann reminds us that  October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. So please tune in to Women Plus show this Saturday, October 15th at 2PM. Hear all about:

    Women Singing OUT!  presents:

    “Where I Live: A Breast Cancer Oratorio”

    Composed in 1999 by Diane Benjamin, “Where I Live: A Breast Cancer Oratorio” is an important work that stresses the environmental factors that still drive the high rate of cancer through the experience of one woman, who represent many. Filled with lyrical beauty and rhythmic intensity, the oratorio is comprised of six narrative readings alternating with seven songs performed by the chorus and chamber orchestra.

    Jo Ann welcomes two members of  Women Singing Out (see photo above).  They are Claudia Frost (see photo below), director, and Marte McNally.  Marte has sung the piece they will be featuring during the show, Where I Live: A Breast Cancer Oratorio,  with another group in Denver, CO.  She has been at WSO! for four years and has been instrumental in making the performance occur.

    Women Plus - Saturday - October 15th - 2-4pm - listen locally at 106.1 fm or streaming live online at www.wscafm.org and click on “Listen Now” at top menu of the page.

    Audio Theatre - Tuesday - October 11th - 6-8 pm - Host: John Lovering - CHECK OUT OUR NEW FEATURE - A Video Promoting This Week’s Featured Shows!
    October 9th, 2011

     

     Join host  John Lovering for another two hours of classic old time radio… designed to entertain and educate!  Sit back, relax and enjoy some of the best radio had to offer  from the 1940′s - 1960′s.   During the “Golden Age of Radio,” the radio was king.  Millions upon millions of Americans gathered around their radios to listen to thousands of broadcasts designed to entertain, inform, and enrich the lives of their listeners.  Radio did more to bring America together during the Great Depression and World War II than any other medium.
