Tanya O'Debra & Molly Pope: LoFi Floozies

Watch (but mainly listen) as Tanya O’Debra lends her voice to 10 characters while simultaneously staging live sound effects in this 1940’s radio detective spoof. Just like the golden age of radio. Only dirtier. Radio Star has been presented all over the world receiving numerous awards and accolades.
“Entertaining, vulgar, and truly hilarious… Radio Star is a raunchy blast.”

Named a Village Voice "Best of NYC 2011" for Best Singer To Turn Life Into A Cabaret, Ms. Pope lends her powerhouse alto to a set of classics from the Great American Songbook that helped shape and define her signature retro style. Expect the inevitable surprise guest, witty banter and excessive product placement of classic radio shows like The Kraft Music Hall and The Bell Telephone Hour. "Brought to you by" the semi-fictional Hazard Gunpowder Company, the Melody Magazine is Molly Pope at her old-timey best.
