The KWUR Theater of the Air is a two-headed hydra bent on global domination.
Firstly, it is a weekly radio show on St. Louis’ own KWUR 90.3 FM, featuring classic radio theater from the 20th century as well as new, original sketches. The show airs every Sunday at 6 PM Central, and is also available as a podcast through iTunes.
Secondly, it is a production umbrella for four all-new, completely original radio theater series:
The Monsoon Season Chronicles (Adventure/Comedy) – December 2006. Three journalists are shipwrecked while on assignment. They awake on the shores of a mysterious isle, deep in the Caribbean. Their attempts to escape the island lead them into strange and forgotten lands.
Sky Pirates! (Adventure/Comedy) – High-flying action! The year is 1933, and Captain Gulliver Nash and the rogue crew of the airship The Feathered Beagle face off against dastardly Belgian industrialist Baron Von Grupp and Luftwaffe commandant Lady Magdalena.
The Human Chord (Superhero/Comedy) – Strong. Fast. Funky. The Human Chord is a superhero who uses the power of funk music to fight crime in the city of Harmonicus. With the help of his trusty sidekick, Soundtrack, the Human Chord brings justice to those who threaten our nation’s most precious commodity – music.
Simon Colt (Horror/Western) – Gunslinger Simon Colt is covered in scars – and each one tells a story. Join Colt as he tangles with the spooky and the supernatural on America’s frontier.
