Grab the hot dogs and the marshmallows, pack up the bug spray and the tick spoon – Strand On The Air, the Strand Theatre’s original radio variety show, goes up to camp in its June broadcast. The latest installment, the “Summer Camp Edition,” will be broadcast on Sunday, June 26, at 5 p.m., and can be heard by tuning in to WRFR at 93.3 in Rockland or by streaming at WRFR.org. Following their broadcasts, the shows are made available to stream on the Strand Theatre website at RocklandStrand.com, and as podcasts.
“Join Liz McLeod and the Strand Family Players, plus Brittany Parker and Dan Bookham, for an hour of laughs and tunes as we all try to escape the heat or the cold (depending on when this article sees print), duck the sunburn, and try to find a parking place,” said Strand on the Air, in a news release.
"All Things Rescinded" will explore the state of not-really-post-pandemic summer travel, consider the possibility of a superhero blockbuster summer flick that hasn't been done before, and will interview Almost The Last Living Person In America Without A Smartphone. And down in Abysmal Point, the woods are full of cuckoos, as Mrs. Grunden, Lilita, Gertie, and Edith head for the tranquil algae-blooming waters of Sluice Lake. All this and the music of returning Strand On The Air favorites Patty Jackson and Rusty Blake.
This show is presented by recording by the Strand Theatre.
