Old Timey Shakespeare

Face Off Unlimited in association with Avon Public Radio is extremely pleased to bring you an unearthed treasure. A part time custodial engineer at the now defunct WBRD Radio Station found a box filled with old recordings and reels from the 30s and 40s. These recordings included gems from the past full of humor, tragedy, romance, and mystery. Miraculous finds, they have some of the most elongated and onanistic performances we’ve ever heard in a radio play. “From the Vault” on APR is excited to present them in their original serial format. Please, sit back and enjoy - Modern Shakespeare Radio.
