3/17 @ 6p: Skywave Mystery Replay! Print E-mail

hey guys,

Please listen to a replay as the Skywave team takes this week to search for new material. I have taken this opportunity finally to insert an image of an actual skywave(there are many) with a handy explanation included. Sort of related to the concept of short wave, this term applies to Gtown's wave reach and is the source of inspiration for our show's title.( Although I should probably have Joe from Science 2.0 come on to explain the concept in depth.) If hankering for thoughtful weekly discussions on all thing science, check out Joe's show every saturday at 3. Finally, this is the anniversary of the first radio play show Skywave performed! See you next week with 2 two radio play presentations.Enjoy...

3/10 @ 6pm: BUBBLE BATH BALL! Print E-mail

Good evening. Welcome to Skywave. I'm your host Andy Pettit. Let's begin tonight's radio play show with an animation of Arch Oboler's series. First aired in 1939, "The Bathysphere" considers what a fearless leader would say when faced with death at the bottom an ocean in a steel ball. following that lead balloon of excitement will be a dramatization from the Marx Bros.' Flywheel" series, which consisted of 26 episodes and lasted just 6 months. Broadcast in 1933, our tale tells the exploits of attorney Waldorf Flywheel (as played by Groucho) and his assistant Ravelli(as played by Chico) as they are presented with an opportunity based on a possible inheritance. And here to raise your hair and tickle your sides are the a tones of Ed Feldman from Gtown's daily reality  dramedy "Morning Feed", the vivaciously vibed Ellen Perry, and Jim "Don't Replay February" Harris from Ave G. So, now go grab a mug o' sumpin' warm cause these voices are heatin' up for you to listen...

3/3 @ 6 sharp:The Season That Keeps On Giving! Print E-mail

Good evening. Welcome to frosty Skywave. When does it end? In anticipation of the approaching mix of frozen particles which seem to be hovering in a permanent holding pattern waiting to emit bundles of ice needles at 70 mph eternally into our numb beyond blue veins, we have a rambunctious recording of a live performance of a radio play that addresses the above subject- winter blues. The plot: A crank yold hermit is alone in his shack during an approaching blizzard in the back woods of Tennessee. There's no one around for miles until stranded snooty New England motorists arrive, his pesky neighbor, and bandits on the run from local goofball police followed by a special detective from Memphis.  Aside from the live sound effects, you'll hear the voices of Allyson Frick, Paul Gordon, Jim Harris, Leon Joshlin, Don Kaywash, Loretta Lucy Miller, Randy Shupp, and your host Andy Pettit.  This March 2013 broadcast of "The Storm" is dedicated to Don Kaywash. We know he's listening.

February 17 @ 6pm: IT'S ALL ABOUT THE HAIR! Print E-mail
Good evening. Welcome to Skywave. Are those snowflakes gathered at the edge of your numb
mind and crowding your blue toes whispering "Go south. Sunny Florida."Well, stop listening to
those petrified party-killing particles because we have something here up north to keep you warmer than any skin-burning beach. Tonight there are 3, not 2, radio plays that will make you thrall to the winter embrace of Gtown's wide open arms of entertainment. First you'll hear another Adventure of Sam Spade. Aired in 1947, "The Dead duck Caper is a classic mystery having you quack for our second story, "The Comeback", a 1928 interpretation of Samson and Delilah that will recall the John Travolta line from the modern film "Saturday Night Fever"- "Yo, don't touch the hair!", which is the least of concerns for our final story from 1929 "Close Up", about a director faced with a casting nightmare when 2 prima donna extras let fly their hissy fits. And here to keep you in your seats throughout the hour are 2 extra special guests from the Black Tribbles- Len and Kennedy, who will keep your head in a constant whirl guessing who's saying what..along with Jim "I'm just here for the free peanuts" Harris and your host Andy Pettit. So..now...let's listen.
