Extractions: International Radio Drama - Social, Economic and Literary Contexts by Tim Crook Please note that this is not an academic essay but an article written during the research for the book 'Radio Drama-Theory and Practice'. The purpose of this article is to express 'journalistic' enthusiasm for research into audio/radio drama. None of the contents of this article are included in the book published by Routledge which can be ordered from the following sites: www.routledge.com www.amazon.com www.amazon.co.uk Radio drama has probably been the most unappreciated and understated literary form of the twentieth century and I hope the neglect will not continue into the twenty first century. Academics, media theorists and writers in most cultures have in the main failed to realise that the medium of sound has provided an environment in which a new storytelling genre has been born. It has developed with sophistication and explosive energy, and now occupies a significant position in the cultural lives of societies throughout the globe. Huge traditions, styles and movements have been established and remain largely undocumented. Even now, radio drama is regarded as an adjunct of radio production practice.

Other Guides In 1993, when I first began to research theatre sites on the internet, it was a difficult and laborious project. Sites were hard to find, search engines were underdeveloped, there were very few theatre people who had taken an interest in, or even knew about the internet. Obviously, things have changed. Now the World Wide Web is easily accessible through a variety of web browsers, making specific knowledge of such utilities as telnet, ftp, and gopher more or less obsolete. There are now so many theatre-related sites that keeping a truly comprehensive guide to resources theatre on the internet, compiled and maintained through human intervention, is incredibly time-consuming. The area of performance studies is even more of a problem, with its incursions into popular culture, communication studies, and hundreds of other (legitimate!) tangents.
HOW TO SELL OUT YOUR THEATRE WITH LAZER VAUDEVILLE the Panida in Sandpoint, ID, as well as international theatre festivals in HISTORICVENUES Suggest the return of vaudeville to the vaudeville house as radio. http://www.lazervaudeville.com/PRINTABLEPROMO HOW-TO.html
Extractions: DEMOGRAPHICS The following techniques are based on years of experience Lazer Vaudeville has a universal appeal to all types of audiences. Our marketing surveys have shown that we attract not just children, but the entire family. Seniors also appreciate the vaudeville roots and remember the acts they saw in their younger days. NEWSPAPERS HISTORIC VENUES: Suggest the return of vaudeville to the vaudeville house as an angle for the story. If there is to be an Arts-in-Education Event Listing PSA can be used as an event blurb. Do not assume that the different sections or reporters at a paper will share the same materials; treat each as a separate contact. Let reporters know about our home page on the internet: http://www.lazervaudeville.com PHOTOS: Try to get our color slides printed whenever possible. They are more eye-catching, and usually ensure better placement within the paper (i.e. front page or cover of section). Sometimes papers are reluctant to use color because they need slides rather than photos, so point out that our 4-color slides are ready-to-print. If the reporter is not sure, tell them you will send the color slides and they can be printed in black-and-white if necessary. We also have black-and-white glossy prints. Both slides and prints come with a caption sheet; the same shots are available in each format. FOLLOW-UP: NEWSPAPER AD: We have an 85-line screen ad complete with a photo of the dragon. Just insert the show information in the blank and the ad will be ready to print. Coupons may also be printed as ads (see "SCHOOLS"). Be sure to confirm with the paper which dates it will run and in which section (it should appear with the Entertainment, Movies or Events, not Real Estate). Check the paper on the first date to be sure the ad is appearing as it should; if not, call to correct it and get some free advertising to make up for the error.
Extractions: Rupert Holmes ruled Broadway in 1986, when the long running musical he scripted and scored, The Mystery of Edwin Drood , won five Tony Awards. But after two thrillers Accomplice in 1990 and Solitary Confinement in 1992Holmes disappeared from the New York stage, instead devoting himself to "Remember WENN," the television series about a struggling 1930s Pittsburgh radio station which developed and retains a cult following. With the program's conclusion, Holmes returned to stagework and this season it will be tough to avoid him. His first Broadway effort in a decade, Say Goodnight, Gracie , a one-man show starring Frank Gorshin as George Burns, begins previews Sept. 17 at the Helen Hayes Theatre. Marty, the musical he wrote with composers Charles Strouse and Lee Adams, will debut at Boston's Huntington Theatre Company on Oct. 18, with John C. Reilly in the title role and a Broadway future possible. His latest thriller, Thumbs , had regional productions this year and may reach Off Broadway this season. And he is working on a musical version of "Remember WENN," which has been announced for The Helen Hayes Theatre Company in Nyack, NY, for early 2003. As if that weren't enough, Holmes has just completed his first novel. Playbill On Line's Robert Simonson talked to Renaissance man Holmes about his many projects.

Marriage is like a three-ring circus: engagement ring, wedding ring, and suffer-ing. Do you realize that when Lincoln was your age, he was chopping wood and helping his parents? / Yeah, and when he was your age he was president. A Scotsmans wife was running a fever of 105, so he had her moved into the basement and used her to heat the house. A Russian was being led off to execution by a squad of Bolshevik soldiers on a rainy morning. What brutes you Bolsheviks are, grumbled the doomed man, to march me through the rain like this. How about us? retorted one of the squad. We have to march back.

Extractions: A variously attributed version of a famous line runs "Vaudeville isn't dead, it just smells that way". In this work, famed Australian vaudevillian, film actor, writer and radio star George Wallace is constantly correcting people who quote it as "Vaudeville is dead". He recalls the line, uttered by local revue impresario Fuller, as "Vaudeville is gone, never to return". Writer and director Mary-Anne Gifford's attempted exhumation of the form has much to enjoy, including some wonderful work from a very strong cast, sharp physical comedy and lovely, nostalgic songs. It's also a rather indulgent and extended version of a life that, at least in this telling, lacks enough incident or interest to sustain its current running time. On opening night, this show ran for two hours and fifty-two minutes, plus an interval. A large chunk of that time is taken up with re-enacting Wallace's 1938 Cinesound film Let George Do It!
Extractions: Milton Berle, whose dominance of the early days of a then-new entertainment medium earned him the title "Mr Television", died from colon cancer on Wednesday in his sleep at his Los Angeles home. He was 93. He spent more than eight decades as a performer, working in motion pictures, vaudeville, nightclubs, radio and the theatre. In 1995, he even starred in an exercise video (Milton Berle's Low Impact/High Comedy Workout). Still, it was his eight years headlining Texaco Star Theatre (later, The Milton Berle Show) every Tuesday night on NBC that made him a household name. At one point, his show registered a Nielsen rating of 89.2 per cent, and his program is generally credited with having popularised television ownership. Parents became so concerned that his program might disrupt family schedules that he began to tell children to go to bed right after his show thus inspiring his other title, "Uncle Miltie". Officials in Detroit discovered that water levels in the city dropped every Tuesday at 9.05pm the result of viewers flushing lavatories after his show.
