KWIT Radio Hour, a modern and island twist on old-fashioned radio shows, returns to brighten up winter and your valentine at SJCT’s Gubelman Theatre on Feb. 14-17 and 21-24.

The Radio Hour, which premiered to sold-out audiences in 2011, is back with “Love is in the Airwaves,” bringing along big microphones, special sound effects, live music and silly comedy.

The Witsend Productions’ group of island actors and comedians brings installments of “As the Harbor Churns,” “The Stoned Stranger,” and “Sam Chowder, Private Eye!” (and commercials from their sponsor, Dissolve it All) as they act, sing and present short, funny commercial breaks before the “live studio audience.”

KWIT Radio Hour castWriter Therese Finn has created more than 56 characters for the 12 island actors and musicians (including herself) in this amorous version. “I really love working with this great KWIT crew,” Finn said.

The Witsend Players feature Patti Bair, Beau Borrero, Keith Busha, John E. Davis, Daniel Finn, Therese Finn, Julie Greene, Gretchen Gubelman, Shannon Kelly, Julie Laidlaw, Bo Turnage and Susan Williams.

The Business Partner for KWIT Radio Hour is Roche Harbor Resort. Tickets are $17 for adults, $9 for student reserved and $5 student RUSH at the door. The SJCT box office is open Tuesdays through Fridays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. For info: 378-3211, ext. 25.
