Back by popular demand! The Big Red Radio Show, which played to a sold out houses in 2010, is a musical tribute to popular CFCY radio host, Loman McAulay. It is also a tour de force for three talented actor/musicians; Jessica Gallant, Nick Whelan and Andrew German,who play a wide range of characters including Loman and fellow host J.P. Gaudet, Betty Large- the Story Book Lady, Muriel Murtagh, the studio manager, Colonel Keith Rogers, the station owner, and the many interesting people he met and interviewed during his record breaking 44 years in radio on PEI . Loman helped to establish Don Messer and the Islanders as a Canadian phenomenon, first in Radio and later on CFCY television. He also interviewed and recorded such up and coming stars as Marg Osborne, Charlie Chamberlain, Gene MacLellan and Anne Murray before they were discovered by the rest of the world. Most importantly, it was the sense of Islandness that he brought to his regular listeners at home and as far away as Maine, Newfoundland and Quebec that made him a household name and earned him the title of “Friendly Voice of the Maritimes.”
Conceived and written by Hank Stinson and Wade Lynch with assistance from Colin McAulay, The Big Red Radio Show will tour to seniors’ venues and community halls across PEI from March 29 to May 1st, 2016, with support from Credit Unions of PEI and CFCY -The Island’s Country.
