PHOENIX PRODUCERS GROUP

THE MEMORY MAKERS

ON THE AIR
A tribute to
Bob Hope
and
Radio Stars of the 1940’s
Starring
Lynn Roberts
with
Chuck Carson
As NBC Staff announcer


The production recreates a 1940’s NBC Bob Hope radio broadcast complete with an on-stage staff announcer reading vintage commercial copy of the period with a humorous touch, presenting recorded jingles of the era and interacting with Bob and his legendary radio star guests, Jack Benny, Red Skelton and Jimmy Durante. The commercial breaks allow Lynn Roberts to change costume and assume each new persona. Bob Hope opens the show with a comedy monologue and a song. He closes the show with a Salute to Veterans segment titled “WHAT IS A VETERAN” and his famous theme song, “Thanks for the Memories.” There is also an audience participation “sing-a-long” with Red Skelton as “Deadeye”.
The web site DVD is edited from an “ON THE AIR” performance. Chuck Carson is featured as the staff-announcer / sidekick and Lynn Roberts stars as Bob Hope and his radio guest stars, Red Skelton, Jack Benny and Jimmy Durante. Please note: All show music is on a CD. Show runs 90 minutes with no intermission unless requested.
