Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to a new season of radio drama shows

With renewed hopes and the desire to continue enjoying the work for the theater culture and its presence in the medium of radio, we start a new season of radio drama shows. And we do with important news. The most notable is the weekly acquires our space since this season with a schedule that combines new productions with reruns of auditions from the media archive of the last thirty years of Radio Theater Voices Staff.

For more than sixty years of history, Radio Theater Voices Staff has performed a large number of works via radio waves, first in disappeared Radio Terrassa and for the past five seasons in the waves 95.2 Radio.

Throughout all these years of history, our Radio Theater Voices Staff has evolved steadily, and many changes have been taking place in all aspects, both as regards the purely technical aspect, artistic and above human.

In the first stage, from 1947 when the first regular Radio Theater Voices Staff was founded until the end of the 1960s, due to technical limitations of the time, works were performed in rigorous direct. However, since the resumption of activity in the 1980s, radio drama shows began airing recorded form. This has meant that, today, Radio drama shows media collection in the last thirty years, has almost a couple of hundred works recorded.

As for the artistic side, we have always focused our work from a dual perspective. On the one hand, a plurality choosing the plays that we reach our audience allows us to reach a wider public or with other preferences, whether one or another author, style or genre, without forgetting make efforts to create a final product quality that allows encourage our fans and let them enjoy the performances that we put on the air.

Obviously the most important piece of the whole puzzle are human resources, which have allowed the theater to get through the airwaves to our fans. Many are the voices that have been part of Radio Theater Voices Staff throughout our history and to the present day. Some of these voices, sadly no longer with us, and others have evolved toward other ways. But all of them have left their mark and have allowed an association of amateur theater, reading and radio fans still remain seduced by a minor artistic genre that fifty years ago was meeting must mark all family homes .

Serve therefore this initiative to recover and get back on the air our media collection, not just to enjoy the theatrical and radio as is conceived, but also to remember and pay tribute to all those who throughout our history have been part of our Radio Theater Voices Staff and, for a reason or another, no longer belongs.

So we invite you, once again, to enjoy the theater without leaving home and without going through the box office. Choose your favorite chair, close your eyes, imagine your own stage and let yourself be enchanted by the excitement of radio drama .
