Strand on the Air: The Don’t Let the Internet Get You Down Edition will be online at and on radio station 99.3 FM at 5 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 28. 

Maine’s Own Radio Variety Show will feature house manager Liz McLeod, musical director Brittany Parker, announcer Dan Bookham, those ever-popular bytes of fun the Strand Family Players, and our special musical guests Freya, for a full hour of laughs and tunes. Those who tune in can hear a special “All Things Rescinded” examination of the Internet’s impact on a pandemic-weary public, featuring an exclusive first-time-ever interview with the actual Internet itself! And down in Abysmal Point, listen in as Mrs. Grunden and Lilita intervene to convince Gertie Crummett not to believe everything she sees on YouTube!

Guest stars Freya are vocalist Gretchen Haggard and guitarist Catherine Smith, both of whom followed a childhood fascination with music into adulthood, along a path that eventually led them to the Midcoast Music Academy, where they first worked together in MCMA’s adult band “Better Late.” They began working as a duo in 2020, entertaining at outdoor venues around the area, and branch now into the broadcast medium with their Strand On The Air performance.

The Strand On The Air, presented by the Strand Theatre in Rockland is written and directed by Liz McLeod, and all broadcasts are available for download as podcasts via following their presentation over WRFR.
