A word from Gil Swain
As a recent contributor to the Diversity Website, I suggested that in addition to the work already represented on radio plays and Producer/Directors there should be information about the men and women without whom there would be no Radio Drama, and perhaps no Diversity Website: the cast.
I was invited to set the ball rolling. The major stumbling block was the paucity of information about the actors and actresses who help create these 'Radio Events': plays, features or readings. We discussed how this sorry state of affairs might be remedied.
This will become an ongoing project, but I've written an appetiser in the form of a review where
radio drama is combined with folk music and the stuff of legends. This is 'El Gaucho Martin Fierro', a stunning production
from forty years ago. Other pages will be listed below as they're compiled.
