Overview

In the twenties when radio ruled the airwaves and small stations thrived, music teacher Hazel C. Hunt received a transmitter as a retirement gift and station WGAL was born in Cedar Rapids, Arkansas. A wacky quintet of singer/musicians gather daily in her parlor to set hearts thumping and toes tapping with rib tickling songs, homey chat and plugs for a rejuvenating tonic that owes its kick to the still out back. Hazel's habit of wave jumping to find a clear channel brings a government inspector to shut her down. She discovers the stage struck accordion playing tenor beneath his bureaucratic facade and he is quickly ensnared in musical and romantic shenanigans. Twenty one original songs performed with thematic props produce the zany hilarity you expect from the creators of Pump Boys and Dinettes and Smoke on the Mountain.
