Ratatat Man, The little drummer boy comes of age, has been performed by persons who simply
love the medium and wanted to be part of a production where the mind is the stage.
My thanks go out to incredible jazz musicians of the Dave Shelton Trio of Frankfort, KY, Lindsey
Hathaway’s children’s choir of Saints Peter & Paul School in Lexington, KY,
Sadie Meyer, my favorite violinist,and Anita Roll for giving "To Lead You By The Hand" a soul.
As for the voice actors, I am simply impressed. None had ever done a radio play before and it
was an eye-opening, ear-opening experience. To record their lines solo and have to wait several
months to hear a final product. Since January, talented voice actors have contacted me from the
area. And I'm impressed by the talent. They have captured the parts perfectly.
Radio dramatics have been central in my 33-year broadcasting career which includes lesser radio
plays, commercials, television sound tracks, morning show bits, executive production of a weekly
Kentucky-wide radio program and a major educational audio tour.
With any luck, this play will air on stations locally and nationally, religious networks and Sirius/XM
possibilities. As popularity grows in subsequent holiday seasons, it is reasonable to expect that
the number of broadcast outlets will also grow.
Can't wait to see if Santa brings it to a station near you? Listen now at the link above.
This Christmas, the past is the present.
