It's a Wonderful Life

Some people call it sappy. Some people call it tired. I call it one of the greatest movies ever, and it's that time of year again, time for "It's a Wonderful Life."

 This is one of my favorite movies, not just at Christmas time but all time.

And for a while now I have had it in my head that I want to put on an old-fashioned radio production of the movie, you know, with all the sound effects and music to go along with live reading of the parts.

Now that the PhilCast has the backing of an entire radio station staff the time has come to make a push to actually do this!

No, not this year. I'm already planning for next Christmas season. I'm envisioning a major production with the various people you hear on WHBY as main characters in the show.

No recording either. We do it live one afternoon on the fly, and you guys hear it all...the good and the flubs. Heck, we could even put this production on at the PAC in downtown Appleton and have listeners there to watch in person. (go big or go home I say)

I had some fun with this topic on the Thursday show, as some listeners already started to audition for parts! (you can hear that on the podcast version of the show of course)

Today, Friday, I'm hoping to have an answer from our program director as to whether or not he can get behind the project.
Who wouldn't I ask?
But Reggie the Grinch doesn't think we'll get the green light.

We'll see.
More about this on the Friday PhilCast.

Later.
