Community Connection is an Indiana Public Radio original program that tells the story of nonprofit organizations in our listening area of East Indiana. Each month, we focus on one organization and what its volunteers and staff are doing to make East Central Indiana a better place to live and work. We’re here to tell their story: what impact they have on our community, how they do what they do, and how you can help.
Presenting "Comfort and Joy": An IPR Radio Drama Retrospective
Indiana Public Radio aired a live re-enactment of Orson Welles' famous "War of the Worlds" broadcast on the show's 70th anniversary in 2008. The IPR radio drama has since become an annual holiday tradition at Ball State University, growing over the years as a unique collaboration among community members, Ball State faculty, and Ball State students. "Comfort and Joy, An IPR Radio Drama Retrospective" reveals the process of creating this local holiday tradition and explores why storytelling in this format - "theater of the mind" - has found such an enthusiastic audience in today's fast-paced world.
