WKNH Radio Theatre Presents Its Holiday Show
WKNH Radio Theatre presents Sounds of the Season, a live radio show, at Keene State College on Sunday, Dec. 1, from 6 to 8 p.m. This 1940s-style live radio broadcast, complete with vintage microphones, live music and sound effects, celebrates Christmas, Kwanzaa, Chanukah, Native American mythology and the winter season through comedy, drama, poetry and song.
Faculty and students from Keene Middle School, Thayer and Conant High Schools, Chesterfield Elementary, and Keene State College join members of the Monadnock Writers Group, the Keene Lions Club, the Keene Cheshiremens Chorus, the N.H. Writers Project, Branch River Theater and Ralynmor Opera to produce this special event.
Intended as a free holiday gift to the Keene area, Sounds of the Season is broadcast on WKNH, 91.3FM for those who cannot join the studio audience in the Night Owl Cafe in Keene State Colleges Student Center.
Special guest performances include a Christmas episode of Willoughby & the Professor in the Sudan by Joe Bevilacqua and Comedy-O-Rama of New York and When Santa Claus Went to Heaven, written by radio veteran Kate Phillips, debuting her first radio script since Cavalcade of America episodes in 1948. The show stars Keene Mayor Mike Blastos as Santa Claus.
Additional vignettes include holiday fables, a play set in the 1940s, a Victorian Christmas story, and a comedic spoof on sci-fi radio programs such as Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon.
Sponsors include Millipore Corporation, Jaffrey Chiropractic Health Center, and WKNH Radio.
