Newtown Cultural Arts Commission Chairperson Jennifer Johnston remarked, “When work on The Flagpole Radio Café began a year ago, we strived to create a compelling variety show in the style of a radio broadcast that would prominently feature artists from Newtown and the surrounding areas and also spread the word about cultural events that take place all year long within our community. To celebrate the end of the first season and because of the enthusiastic response of our audience, we are moving from the Alexandria Room to the Edmond Town Hall Theatre.  I’m particularly delighted to have Daria Musk return to conclude the season with her mother Wendy Musk who plays flute with virtuosity and grace. We are looking forward to the May show as well as presenting a whole new season of The Flagpole Radio Café programs resuming in September.”

For those not acquainted with The Flagpole Radio Café, it is an engaging variety show created by Jim Allyn, Martin Blanco and Barbara Gaines in conjunction with the Newtown Cultural Arts Commission. It features music by Jim Allyn and the Flagpole Radio Café Orchestra, a dynamic ensemble created for the show, and radio style comedy sketches by the hyperbolically named Flagpole Shakespeare Repertory Theatre. The Flagpole Radio Cafe is hosted by musician and radio personality Chris Teskey, who also broadcasts the show on his celebrated program on WPKN radio. Each show features a musical guest artist such as Peter Yarrow, Vanesse Thomas, Phil Bowler and Yale’s internationally acclaimed male choir The Whiffenpoofs.
