Old Time Radio - Live On Stage!

I sketched at the Old Time Radio--Live on Stage! performance at the high school auditorium last Saturday. They did a bang-up job of recreating Fibber McGee & Molly, Sherlock Holmes, The Whistler and Our Miss Brooks for an enthusiastic audience. It was fundraiser for KWPA 96.9, Whidbey Public Radio in Coupeville. It's VERY local - the signal only reaches 5-7 miles, but you can get it online.

Sketching conditions were challenging - working in the dark from too far away with my little pocket-sized moleskine. Had fun adding color later at home.

South Whidbey dance band "Locomotion" sets the mood.

  1. I was there, too, and couldn't sketch and listen at the same time. You completely captured the characters and the essence of the event. Good job! Susan Jensen
