Want to produce your own old-time radio show? This is the easiest way to do it. A Radiokit contains everything you'll need except actors! Ideal for:

  • Community Theatres
  • School Drama Classes
  • Senior Centers
  • Churches
  • Audio Drama Groups

...or anyone who wants to see how radio drama used to be done,  and try it themselves. 

Each Radiokit is shipped to you with all the materials you need to produce a 30 minute or 60 minute recreation of a  classic radio show from the Golden Age of Radio. We've gone back to the  actual original scripts from the archives of the Generic Radio Workshop, never made available to the public, added all the music, sound effects, and advice you need to get started, enclosed in a sturdy leatherette 3-ring director's binder.

You create the show as your cast and talents permit. Use all the included sound effects and music, or add your own live FX for an authentic radio studio experience. Explore the imaginative possibilities of the Golden Age of Radio, taking advantage of the Generic Radio Workshop's 40 years of producing and reproducing Old Time Radio to jumpstart and simplify your show. It's educational. It's historical. It's fun!

EACH RADIO KIT CONTAINS...

  • A precisely reproduced copy of the decades-old original script used by cast & crew, complete with handwritten notes and edits
  • A formatted, printed, and punched copy of the script for performance
  • Background information on the series
  • Advice on creating your own sound effects
  • Notes regarding virtual and in-person production

AND A USB FLASH DRIVE WITH...

  • Sound files for all music cues
  • Sound files for key sound effects
  • MS Word and PDF editions of the script, in original and as-broadcast versions when available
  • Recordings of the original broadcast series and episode (if it exists)
  • MacOS and Windows software for editing and playing sound files
