Must-listen: KTHI’s A Christmas CarolDon Day | December 22, 2007
This Monday and Tuesday at noon and 7pm, KTHI/107.1 K-Hits will do something unique these days: present a radio play. The station will present A Christmas Carol, featuring members of Journal Brodcast Group filling each of the starring roles.
Tracy Mitchell and Margo Vaughn narrate the play – with KJ Mac as Mister Scrooge, Carl “CB” Ballance as Jacob Marley, Barry Lewis as Fred and KJOT/J-105’s Kristine Simone as the solicitor. Brian Rodgers (production director), Rockwell Smith (our “own” RDS) and Rick Kemp (JBG chief engineer) fill the roles of the three ghosts. Boise Traffic’s Susie Black pulls double duty as Belle and Martha. JBG Boise GM Bob Rosenthal appears as “Mr. Rosenthal” – KRVB/94.9 The River’s Tim Johnstone is (who else) Tiny Tim – and The River’s Rochelle Smith plays Peg. Sabra Brue (sales), Sandy Anderson and young Damian Mac round out the cast.
The group gathered in a Plaza Seven conference room earlier this month to perform the play, and Brian Rodgers produced the event. JBG even scored a sponsor – Paul’s Market – making this bit of good radio a commercial success as well.
