Radio Kids Vocal Sample

Script and song by S.A. Cranfill © Family Friendly Productions LLC

DESCRIPTION – Radio Play within a Play Comedy (1 Short Song, a Radio Jingle)

The Radio Kids are the stars of the Saturday evening family hour, a locally produced show on KTIQ, a small-town radio station in 1940. They do a show each week. Normally they are able to preview the script and do a run-through of the play. Tonight, the scripts are late and the announcer is anxious, but coping. The script for this week is a mystery, which pleases the Kids. One of the co-stars, Little Laura Lee, has lost her little sister, and both her fear and her little sister show up in the play, on air and off, wreaking a bit of havoc for the announcer and fun for your audience (not the “radio audience”). What happens when you “wreck” Adam and Eve on a raft? And, just what is the “clump”? Will we ever find out?
