“It is a new medium,” Michael adds, “really nothing like we’ve ever really dealt with prior to now. I’m not old enough to remember radio, but I listened to NPR when there was a big comeback for radio shows and they did things like Star Wars and A Prairie Home Companion.” Aside from their regular member-editors, Hollywood Radio Players take turns with directing and other duties to keep things fresh. “It’s not just only great entertainment. It’s also learning and being respectful of our past, where we’ve all come from and how we got to where we are now over the decades of entertainment in this industry.” Among their shows so far are the classic thriller The Hitch-hiker, the Thanksgiving charmer The Life of Riley, and Orson Welles’ The War of the Worlds, a choice close to Lee’s heart since one of her earliest gigs as an actress was working with the maestro himself. There’s so much more to come from the Hollywood Radio Players-please tune in monthly! We hope you enjoy listening, watching, and finding a new way to support our mission.
