I'm helping Josh Flowers with a retro-style radio program. I'm "producing," which, as far as I can tell, just means "doing whatever Josh Flowers doesn't want to do." Hm.
Anyway, we're hosting an open casting call for voice talent on April 12 at the Cincinnati Public Library downtown. We want folks for the following roles:
- Narrator: male, traditional announcer with deep, manly voice
- Hero: male, classic mid-century radio superhero, lunkhead
- Android: male, self-aware robot servant that is more human than our hero
- Robot 1 & Robot 2: gender-neutral, robots
Want to be a part of the action? Learn more about the casting call here (PDF).
After we record the first episode, we will use it to gain support for a live show. Our ultimate goal is a live performance: voice actors and a foley artist on stage reading the script in front a audience while the show is broadcast live on the radio.
Pretty rad, no?
Josh Flowers and I are huge nerds who love classic radio programs and the way they usurp the imaginations of their listers. We're pretty excited to bring the format to new audiences.
