A local Tasmanian theatre company will take audiences back to the years when radio was king in a new production in Wynyard.
Squid Inc Theatre well present the Golden Years of Radio at Wynyard Senior Citizen's Centre as part of the Spring Loaded Festival from October 6-8.
The show will relive the decades from the 1930s to the 1950s, when most family entertainment was centered around the wireless radio.
Director Alan Wright said he is looking forward to bringing the "heart warming" show to Wynyard.
Squid Inc Secretary Nick Bosly-Pask said the show - which is being presented with the help of broadcast partner Coast FM Community Radio, will explore what made the wireless such an important entertainment hub of the family household.
"We've had so much fun putting this show together and we reckon it will stir up memories among those who were radio regulars at the time as well as providing a small window into the past for younger members of the community," he said.
The show will revisit the sometimes annoying, but always memorable advertisements, the long running radio 'soapies' of the era and will also include a radio themes quiz to test audience members' memories.
Audiences will also be treated to a live demonstration of how sound effects were managed (or sometimes mis-managed) in live radio shows by technical producer Danny Russell.
Performances will take place from 7.30pm on the Friday and Saturday and 2pm on the Sunday. Entry will be by gold coin donation.
