Radio is back on stage as the Freeport Players present “Radio—WFCP Home Time Radio Hour, XVI,” on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, December 2, 3, and 4, at Freeport Performing Arts Center.

Radio is a variety show set in the golden age of radio – the 1940s to the 1970s – including comedy sketches, a live band and songs of the era, and hilarious sound effects. The “live studio audience” enjoys the show in person. Fans of Radio will be excited to see the return of Joe Tanner, PI, and the intrepid crew of Rocket Space Quest, along with other comedy sketches, comic product ads, and fabulous live music. And no Radio would be complete without the funny Sound Effects ladies.
