Subject: [bcra] Idea for Benefit


I'm going to be creating a radio show for broadcast this summer over WBCR. The show is called "Oh, The Humanity", and it's a combination of live sketches developed through improv wedded to scripted studio work. The live portion of the show will be taped at Seven Hills Inn each Sunday evening during July and August.

In talking with the booking manager for the Inn, I've convinced him to leave one Sunday evening open at the end of June for a preview performance, with proceeds benefitting WBCR. It would be a good opportunity for our acting troupe (to be cast at an April 24th audition at Seven Hills) to try out their wings in front of live local audience, and to raise money for WBCR.

Does that sound like an event that WBCR would like to sponsor? Does the fact that the venue has changed to Lenox mean that it's no longer "local"? (BTW, a downtown Gt Barr venue had originally agreed to host the show--a spoof of radio--but changed its mind for fear of offending "The Great God of the Airwaves Who Watches Over Us All".)

Feedback requested, please.

Hello fellows,
As most of you know there is a benefit auction for the radio station being organized right now. It is tentatively scheduled for may 14th, which is right around the proverbial corner. We have a great need right now to acquire artwork or other auctionable things.

The only person currently who is active in soliciting donations for this auction is Mary Childs and I'm sure she could use the help of at least two volunteers. For more information on how you can help with other facets of the process or make suitable donations contact Abbie Childs.
