PPR Launches: “Theatre Hour”, Sunday’s at Six, Wednesday’s at Seven

July 6, 2012



Pawling Public Radio has introduced a new program to their broadcasting schedule.  “Theatre Hour,” launched in July with radio classics taken from the golden age of radio. Listeners asked Pawling Public Radio to bring old-time radio plays to PPR’s local airwaves. The result – each week the “Theatre Hour” will be heard on Sunday at 6 p.m. and on Wednesday at 7 p.m. Selections will be drawn from comedy, mystery, westerns, and the Lux Radio Theatre, usually with all the classic commercials intact. Listeners will hear introductions by the volunteer producers of each segment: Kim Blacklock, Kathy Freston, Jim Muller, and June Schlesinger.

PPR’s Theatre Hour Committee will also produce original one-act plays suitable for radio. The first chosen submission is “A Human Touch,” by Jude Albert, a Dutchess County playwright.  Stacy Dumont will direct.  Auditions will be announced on the PPR website soon.

The Pawling Public Radio Theatre hour is underwritten by H. G. Fairfield Arts Center for the Environment, M & S of Pawling Chevrolet Buick Cadillac, and by PPR contributing members.

Sit back and relax as you listen to classic comedies, mysteries, westerns, and dramas performed by the giants of the golden age of Hollywood.  Listen live at 101.7 FM in the Village of Pawling, or stream live at www.pawlingpublicradio.org.
