Featuring top talent from both Portland and Los Angeles, Fake Radio will re-enact two 30min episodes of this historic radio show the old-fashioned way: dressed in period clothing and standing with scripts in hand in front of old microphones. Sound and music effects will make you feel like you're watching a live radio recording from the 1940s. We'll even re-create the old commercials! Just be ready for the cast to occasionally go off-script!
