The 1940’s Radio Hour: The Hit Play With Timeless Retro Music
It’s Wintertime 1942, and New York’s little-radio-station-that-could, WOV, is about to air its final broadcast of the holiday-themed Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade from the Hotel Astor. That’s the setting for The 1940s Radio Hour, a timeless play full of classic tunes. The spirit of that bygone era when the world was at war and pop music is accurately captured as a harassed producer copes with a drunk lead singer, the delivery boy who wants a chance in front of the mike, the second banana who dreams of singing a ballad, and the trumpet playing sound effects man who chooses a fighter plane over Glenn Miller.
With its dance routines, swinging music (including “I’ve Got a Gal In Kalamazoo,” “Love Is Here to Stay,” “That Old Black Magic,” “Ain’t She Sweet,” “Blue Moon,” “Chiquita Banana,” “I’ll Never Smile Again,” “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Blues in the Night,” “I Got It Bad (and That Ain’t Good),” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” “I’ll Be Seeing You,” and beloved cast of characters, Radio Hour was a hit in Theatre in the Square’s first season back in 1982, and went on for a 25-year seasonal run. Now North Bay Stage Company brings playwright Walton Jones’ hit to the Carston Cabaret at LBC celebrating nearly 37 years of fun.
