While I was in town for the historic homes tour, I saw they were doing a live recording of a local weekly radio show at 6:30 p.m. Tickets were $10, so I bought one.
I've always kind of wanted to go to a live taping of a radio show, so I was really excited about it!
It was really similar to "A Prairie Home Companion" -- Spring City's show is called "Life Under the Horseshoe," and it's drama, stories, and music. Really clever and professional.
They apparently use (and alter) stories that locals send in, so you can email them with a story about your family, or something interesting that has happened in the area, and the writers may include it (or a version of it) in a future show -- pretty fun!
The sound guy was hilarious, too. During the drama skit, someone was supposed to shoot a gun. After a couple of vigorous attempts to shoot the toy gun the sound guy had, he realized it wasn't working, so he just shouted "BANG!" -- and everyone in the room completely lost it. The actors, the host, the audience, the sound guy himself -- we were all dying. It was hilarious!
Such a fun time!
