The Details:

Amidst the tumbling torrent that was the 1920s, Frank and Flora Conrad were on the edge of discovering mass broadcasting. These two unsung radio pioneers broke through the static and established the first radio station in America in their unassuming garage in East Pittsburgh. ON AIR follows their untold love story, and how radio became a constant companion, messenger and soundtrack of our lives over the past century of American life. See the regional premiere of this Helen Hayes Award nominated musical at Duquesne University's Genesius University from November 5-9, 2020 to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the first radio broadcast and the creation of Pittsburgh's KDKA Radio featuring Duquesne University students and original cast members: Jimmy Mavrikes as Frank Conrad Nora Palka as Flora Conrad Robert Aubrey Davis as Radio Voice/Francis Conrad Erin Granfield as Agnes Davis Garrett Matthews as Henry P. Davis Owen Thiebert as Young Francis Conrad Presented in partnership between KDKA Radio 1020AM, Duquesne University, LA TI DO Productions, with permission from Creative Cauldron in Vienna, VA.
