Episode 029 - Classic Radio Theatre - War of the Worlds by Mark

WSAJ’s “Theatre of the Air” saved the best for last. WSAJ’s version of Orson Welles Larry Bowald couldn’t resist mounting the classic “War of the Worlds” with a western PA twist.

This was an extra length production, with Larry leading the cast of Chris Fisher, Darla Vornberger, Cheryl Sheely, Mark Harrison, Bill Koch, Art Wilson, and Donna Kozik.  We even get a promo for the program!

Somehow, this cassette fared much better over the years, and the audio quality is not bad.

We will get into the “college bands” portion of the series next time (you got a taste of it in this production—nice touch, Larry).



Episode 028 - Classic Radio Theatre - Splash of Water by Mark

WSAJ’s “Theatre of the Air” continues, with the parable “Splash of Water". 

Craig Munch stars, with Dave Miller, Cat Fithian, Lisa Harris, Bill Koch, Michelle Petrucci, Mark Harrison, and Jack Wenches rounding out the cast.  Craig pulls double duty as director, and took advantage of library stock music throughout.

As usual, the audio quality isn’t great, but what can you expect from 30 year old cassettes?



Episode 025 - Classic Radio Theatre - The Lady or the Tiger by Mark

WSAJ’s “Theatre of the Air” continues.  We go back to the classics for “The Lady or the Tiger”.

Larry Bowald plays the king, with Lisa Hogle, Mark Harrison, Donna Day, Darla Vornberger, and Bill Koch rounding out the cast.

Whomever made the original recordings seems to be doing better as they went along—there was less cleanup on this one.
