The Hit One Man Play Returns
After a sell-out run last year, one-man play My Station In Life returns to Gloucester Stage this October for a special work-shop production. Telling the story of Simon Geller and his one-man radio station, My Station In Life charts the local hero's final and isolated few days with his beloved WVCA-FM.
Seen as a local legend, Simon Geller kept hundred of thousands of listeners entertained with his one man operated, quirky radio station for nearly 25 years. With a no holds barred approach, including taking toilet breaks and running errands during live Broadcast, Keller frequently faced huge opposition from the Federal Communications Commission, however this stubborn character kept going.
Alas in 1988 Geller finally sold WVCA-FM for a whopping one million dollars, but with the radio station now gone Geller's story continues to inspire many projects, including the short film Radio Fishtown which premiered in 1990.
