On Air: variety style show celebrating the radio pioneering days
Sunday 30 Jul
A humorous musical look back at Radio through the years – focusing on the late 40s through to the 60’s. Local performers showcase songs, skits, old commercials and the inevitable comedy scripts that went to make up “the wireless” – the in-home entertainment system of the day.
Directed by Trish Waters, and ably assisted by Russell Dann and Mary Ruston, this show will feature both the Jazzamatazz choir and solo performers in both musical and comedic settings.
There’ll be characters like Aunt Daisy, The Glums and The Archers, interludes of old News and Weather, Historic Racing and Rugby Commentary, short sharp bursts of ancient Advertising jingles... anyone remember Chesdale Cheese, or the Brylcreem Boys?
