FLASHBACK - 2009 FOTR Convention; Yep, More Pics

Filed under: Old-Time Radio — Charlie Summers @ 11:44 am

I am slowly digging through old post drafts for the blog, looking for interesting things to talk about, edit, or revise. I found this post complete, and cannot help but wonder why I never posted it in the first place. But here it is, only a few years late, with my apologies. –cfs3

These photos were taken Saturday, October 24, 2009, and are mostly of the Gotham Radio Players. This is a group based in New York led by Steven Lewis that routinely appears on WBAI radio, and each year at the Friends of Old-Time Radio Convention.

They have a core group of players, yet also involve other guests of the convention in their performances; this year, they enlisted the services of Simon Jones (best-known as Arthur Dent in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) to perform the title role in an episode of The Saint.

The software I use for the photo galleries is a little limited on the amount of space I can use in the descriptions, so let me note now the Players - from left-to-right in the performance pic down there, James Jockle, Ron Weitz, Ted Ferber, Simon Jones, Sandi Sherr, Melissa Kalt (obscured), Lucien Dodge (obscured), and Bill Zarro. Anne Marie Hendrickson and Paul Curtis are the sound effects artists, and Mike Mandel (not pictured) handled the live music.

If you get the chance, give this group a listen. I’m not usually excited about contemporary groups performing old-time radio scripts, but these folks are really good.
