Kick-off Christmas at Crossroads Holiday Magic’s 25th Anniversary with the “Happy Holidays Huckleberry Radio Hour.” It’s coming Saturday, November 28th at 7PM, featuring musical guest stars, Cats and the Fiddler. These are some talented kids. Shaun, his twin brother James, and their first cousin Carmen started their bluegrass band when they were 6 years old. Today, at age 13, the young bluegrass sensations are veterans writing their own music, and performing all over the country.
They’ll join Huckleberry Radio Hour regulars; Neil Woodward-Michigan’s Troubadour, Gary Weisenberg, the Flint Jubilee Chorale, the Huckleberry Players, sound effects artist Jon Coggins, and writer/host well known, local broadcaster Michael J. Thorp.
The “Huckleberry Radio Hour features its own soap opera, “As the Village Turns.,” a humorous look at the trials and tribulations of the residents of historic Crossroads Village. The village history lesson by our village School Marme, Miss Neva Rochester, our weather Rock forecast with village weather guesser Mike Jobin, story telling and lots of music and fun in a jam packed hour of live entertainment all live start to finish.
The music, the commercials, even the sound effects are all performed live, no tape or Computers in this show. Since the “Huckleberry Radio Hour is a “Live” radio show, the studio audience is an essential part of the cast.” “Without them, it’s not “Live” radio.”
Thorp says, “When you think of the “Huckleberry Radio Hour,” think of a combination of those classic radio variety shows, “The Grand Ole Opry” and “A Prairie Home Companion”, with a touch of the “Jack Benny Program”, and “Fibber McGee and Molly.”
The next show is Saturday November 28th at 7PM featuring special guest artists, Cats and the Fiddler, regular Neil Woodward and the Huckleberry Pickers, the Flint Jubilee Chorale, and the Huckleberry Players.
