STRAND ON THE AIR Son of Social Distancing Special

Radio Variety Show

Original radio comedy, original music – and plenty of fun for the whole family.

Tune in to WRFR (93.3) on Sunday, June 28 at 5pm for STRAND ON THE AIR’s “Son Of Social Distancing Special,” the latest in the summer series of full-hour radio variety shows presented by the Strand Theatre in Rockland. Written, directed, and hosted by Strand house manager Liz McLeod, this month’s program will feature a return guest-star engagement by popular Waldo County old-time-harmony duo Patty Jackson and Rusty Blake, who enchanted listeners in a live appearance on the program last summer.  Strand education coordinator Brittany Parker returns as leader of the one-woman house band along with announcer Dan Bookham, and Strand Family Players Lili Bonarrigo and Lindsey Reilly.

Comedy segments will include another socially-distant edition of “All Things Rescinded,” with newscasters Karl Stuffel and Camomile Bourgeois, and a new visit to the forgotten coastal backwater of Abysmal Point, where clam-shack magnate Mrs. Grunden and her dubious assistant Lilita consider the hazardous possibility of putting their operation on wheels. In addition to these regular features,  Liz McLeod will offer a technical demonstration of exactly how radio comedy works, accompanied by a larger-than-life guest expert with very small arms.  The program, assembled from bits individually recorded at home by the cast and edited into a hopefully-not-too-coherent whole, will be available after the WRFR broadcast via the Strand website and on popular podcast platforms.

STRAND ON THE AIR – coming to you once a month thru this summer, with a much-needed dose of real hometown entertainment!
