LA Stage Co. turns on 'Radio' this week


 

Los Altos Stage Company is slated to perform the musical “The 1940s Radio Hour” Thursday through Dec. 23 at Bus Barn Theater, 97 Hillview Ave.

Written by Walton Jones, the musical debuted on Broadway in 1979. The show begins in New York, as radio station WOV records its final holiday broadcast to overseas troops, playing classic American songs such as “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Blue Moon” and “Stormy Weather.” The narrative concerns the harassed producer whose leading singer is often drunk, the delivery boy who wants a chance in front of the mic, the second banana who dreams of singing a ballad and the trumpet-playing sound-effects man who chooses a fighter plane over Glenn Miller.
