SKYWAVE 9/4 @ 6pm: "I Want To Walk/ Venus Is A Man's World?" Print E-mail


Good eve. Welcome to Skywave for more radio play excitement. We have 2 goodies tonite. We begin with an original by Caitlin Cieri, titled "I Want To Walk". A homeless man begs for change in the street and an elderly man stops to lecture him about his life choices. But the longer the conversation goes on, the more apparent it is the elderly man has a secret shame of his own. This is a play that tackles the opioid crisis and the insidious way pain management turns into full blown addiction. We follow with an episode for the X Minus One sci fi series. 1st broadcast `1957, "Venus Is A Man's World" considers how the solar system operates in the year 2107, when gender equality is extinct and women say what goes until a Venusian man in search of an Earth wife meet and we find out who has the last word, so to speak. And here to keep you speechless are playwright Caitlin Cieri and regular voice Maury Harris along with your host, Andy Pettit.

SKYWAVE August 14 6pm: CRYIN' JAGS! Print E-mail


Good eve. Welcome to Skywave. We have 3 scripts. We begin with an episode from the 1930s melodramedy Cecil and Sally series. Titled "Sally Has  a Good Cry", it seems that poor ol' Sally has gotten deep into Existentialist  angst over feeling all alone. Is she? Stay tuned.  We continue with an entry from the Phil Harris-Alice Faye comedy show. 1st broadcast 1953, "Gang Leader's Phone Number" has Phil and Alice believing an old lady is a mob leader. But who gets arrested? Stay tuned and listen from Fleischmann's Yeast Hour. Originally aired 1935, "The Church Mouse" considers the spunk of a meek young lady who demands that a big shot bank prez give her a chance at playing secretary. Will he give in? Well, here to jiggle the jello out of your stuffing are regular voices Martha Michael, Bill Simpson, and your wiggler Andy Pettit.
