 Finally!  the fourth and FINAL in the series..... I SPY ...set in the 1950s, the Cold War era....and it's coming in MARCH.......11th to 15th March ....various venues various times.... 
Hear the fabulous music of the 50s and some of the great stories of the era.  This was a time when our home-grown inventions, initiatives, and talent were about to make their mark on the world stage. A time when the new craze from the States - rock and roll - found its mark here. 
    And of course, our Live Radio Play - The Devious Digit of Destiny - comes to its wacky end.  Some new characters appear [hint: cold war, spies, russia] and we farewell one of the originals;  some new schemes emerge; some unexpected surprises; and some eccentric revelations! 
    FEATURING a cast of 000's!  well, not quite....   Maureen O'Brien, Stevi Cannon, Grant Bailey, John Dickeson, Amanda Broberg, David Benge, and guitarist/sound effects wizard Peter Sesselmann
