SKYWAVE 1/8 @ 6pm: "COMMITTED" to "JUGS"?! Print E-mail

Image 

Welcome to Skywave for 3 listening treats! We begin with something fresh- two 10 minute shorts both written by playwright/actress Shelli Pentimall-Booker. Our first selection is titled "Jugs" published 2020. So it seems Lucille in her senior citizen frame wants a job as a waitress for a Hooters style restaurant called Jugs. Does she still have the right stuff? Our second selection, "Committed", was podcast 2019 and is a unique interaction between two couple's conversations. How is is that with relationships there are more questions than answers. Our 3rd piece is from the Suspense series. Originally aired 1945, "Nobody Loves Me" is a masterful thriller not only for its taut insight on a killer, but also for it's sharp ending twist. And here to keep your ear  twisted  are voice regs Aaron Roberge, Kathy Harmer and Shelli along with your host, Andy Pettit.
