Radio Show Recreates Unnatural Disaster of Epic Proportions
Vancouver, BC - Return with us to the thrilling days of 1937, when the Hindenburg and Amelia Earhart had folks rethinking air travel for the first time.  In the movies Clark Gable didn’t give a damn and the golden age of radio drama was in full swing.
Wax Poetic Radio proudly takes you there with a one-of-a-kind live event on Vancouver’s Commercial Drive in support of CFRO Vancouver’s Independent Cooperative Radio Station.  
Experience the spine tingling glory of “The Chicken Heart” - a frenetic tale about a lab experiment gone terribly wrong, written by legendary radio writer/producer Arch Oboler .
The original “Lights Out” version left such an impression on funny man Bill Cosby, that he recounted his experience of hearing it for the first time on his “Wonderfulness” album in 1966 (You can hear Cosby’s version here).

You can hear the original NBC broadcast of “The Chicken Heart”  here on YouTube.

Then keep tuning in to Wax Poetic and hear it broadcast on a future program. Like all our shows, we’ll also be storing the episode online to hear and share at your convenience.
We have an ever growing lineup of cast members including Martin Vansteingburg, SR Duncan, Diane Laloge, Alla Shiskov, Aedan Saint, Norah Holtby, Chris Gilpin, Duncan Shields and RC Weslowski--with music by CJ Leon and sound effects by YOU THE "STUDIO AUDIENCE."Plus, we’ll have performances by:
Come be a part of radio history and support your favorite spoken word program, Wax Poetic!
Vancouver Youth Poetry Slam team member and Wax Poetic Volunteer Paul Fischer, Duncan Shields, and your hosts Diane Laloge and S.R. Duncan
And a special onstage interview by The Vancouver Storyteller Society’s Naomi Steinberg
 Plus, door prizes, 50/50 draw, and SR’s world famous meat draw (guess what he’ll be giving away!)
