Watching a radio show unfold "live" is such an entertainment throw-back to over 100-years. It’s not an exaggeration. Radio was it back in the 1920's and eventually progressed to television and now the internet with entertainment streaming.
With radio listening overall in decline, as a former radio producer both entertainment and block news, watching it being made is worth a ticket.
