Tune in as comedy legend Michael (Big Micky) Veitch and handsome young blade Simon (The Kid) Oats brush off their double-breasted dinner suits to transport us back to the days before television days when radio was king with Mystery in the Air!
Yes, it’s mayhem in the studio as 1947’s most popular weekly radio drama serial, Mystery in the Air! goes live to air on radio station 3DDDP. As always, the star of the show is that beloved veteran of radio, the ‘Man of a Thousand Voices’ himself, Clinton Webb. Change, however, is afoot. For the past few weeks, management has seen fit to make Clinton share the microphone with the new darling of the airwaves, dashing fighter pilot ace, former Squadron Leader Rupert Billington-Smythe. Sure, he may be talented, handsome and a considerably younger ratings-winner (not to mention a sure-fire hit with the ladies), but Clinton’s just about had it with this young upstart’s complete lack of well…professionalism!
However, with two radio plays, twenty voices and a pile of live-to-air sound effects to get through – all performed live by our two chaps, the show must go on…if it can!
Something tells me that this week, things are jolly going to come to a head! Come see the fireworks fly for yourself in Mystery in the Air!
