Icebox Radio Theater

News, events and doings surrounding the Icebox Radio Theater of International Falls, Minnesota.

My son is home from college, the last podcast of the year is up and flying, and I’m feeling the beginnings of the holiday blahs. There are a number of projects I need to be working about, not the least of which being the next Scoop Sisters script (Podcast numbers during the S-Sisters run were phenomenal) and recording for the next big production, ‘A Distant Land’. Unfortunately, I’m just not feeling it at the moment. I’m feeling the need to nest a bit (vacuumed dust bunnies from under the bed today) maybe write a bit, and maybe DJ a few hours on our WiFi radio station just for fun. Overall, it is definitely a time which feels like it did when I was a kid. Christmas was always exciting and dramatic and filled with tension, but for all that, it seemed to be a time when it was awfully easy to while away hours doing next to nothing. And now that I live in Minnesota, I’ve got the weather as an excuse, too. Zero degrees at the moment, minus-20 expected tomorrow. Beautiful sunshine, though, which I’ll bet is something they aren’t having back home in the Pacific Northwest, though they are slated for a white Christmas there as well.

Overall, a very, very good year for the Icebox Radio Theater. We earned our first grant, took our act on the road to Minneapolis, launched our own radio station, and produced four or five hours of original radio theater. And, for the first time, paid the actors. Thank you, 2008. You will not be forgotten soon.
