Radio Rosendale (WRDL) visits Victorian England and the world of Sherlock Holmes. We have taken two classic stories, ‘The Red Headed League’ and ‘A Scandal in Bohemia’ to weave one tale of deception, foreign intrigue, theft and of course… scandal. The two clients, a Red-headed man and a royal Bohemian, lead Holmes to match wits with two formidable opponents. One, considered by Holmes to be, the fourth smartest Man in London – the other a woman he will never forget.

Following Holmes we will move across the pond to NYC, 1939 and meet Ellery Queen, considered to be the American heir to Homes/Watson. Ellery is a mystery novelist who often gets pulled into crime solving, combining the skills of the British duo. The Last Man Club draws Queen in as he witnesses what seems to be a murder. We meet many of the series regulars, along with a fabulous group of suspects. The original radio show always included a moment for the audience to guess “who done it”. We look forward to the studio audience solving the crime. Directed by Sydnie Grosberg Ronga these vintage radio plays are performed with Live Music by Marta Waterman and live sound effects done by the actors! The actors include: Ann Citron, Erin Hebert, Brian Mathews, Jared Reinmuth, and Griffin Stenger. Come be part of our 1948 studio audience! Dressing for the era is encouraged but not required!
