The 1940’s Radio Hour

July 18-20, 1974 | Yale Cabaret
Directed by: Walton Jones | Literature: Walton Jones
Fabled WOV, a little New York City radio station, takes to the air on December 21, 1942 (about a year into the U.S. involvement in World War II), this time to record a broadcast for the troops overseas. The narrative concerns the harassed producer, the leading singer who is often drunk, the second banana who dreams of singing a ballad, the delivery boy who wants a chance in front of the mic, and the young trumpet player who chooses a fighter plane over Glenn Miller.
Cast: Franchelle Dorn, Christine Estabrook, Charles Herbert, Walt Jones, Joel Polis, Marcel Rosenblatt, Kenneth Ryan, Meryl Streep (Ginger Brooks)
