lux radio theatre, Navy christmas
Battleship Cover, FALL RIVER, MA. Dec. 15, 2018.
"An amazing all-around success!" Navy Christmas went off without a hitch! Our audience was taken back to 1943 where they were wined, dined and treated to a concert event, written, directed and produced by Colette O'Connor that resembled an authentic "Live Radio Broadcast."
The event evening's theme is 1940's Christmas allowed Colette and Mike to perform many of the era's well-loved songs with radio show pizzazz!
The show included fun advertisements of the time, including Alkaseltzer and LUX Beauty Soap as well as a special holiday edition of "SUSPENSE" Radio Theater...another original addition written by Colette called "My Christmas Call."

Colette is a visionary who sings because she must and because she does, all who hear her are filled with light and wonder. - Debra Andersen, Radio Programmer/Host "The Wimmin's Show" KZUM 89.3 FM-HD, Lincoln NE.
On "Ground to Dust" THIS is a real thinking persons song. There is deep, deep meaning here. Almost like an Al Stewart song: just when you think you've found the center, there lies yet another layer. - Daniel Stratton, The Wanderer, Independent Radio Host
I Think I AM is an exemplar of what good acoustic music should be in this time of same-sounding pop hits. Her original songs—from the pragmatically philosophic title track to the delightful story of the “People on the Porch”—resonate with both joy and insight, and deliver a pleasing vocal style combined with some outstanding musicianship. There are sixteen tracks in all, and every one is fashioned with both warmth and wit, evoking the poetic spirit of this talented artist. Songs like “Penny in the Pond,” “Been There Done That,” “Hide and Seek,” “Huckleberry Finn,” and the rest are worth listening to again and again. As a songwriter, O’Connor deftly crafts words, matches them with original melodies, and then infuses them with her own personality, creating something very special. -Nick Noble, host of THE FOLK REVIVAL on NPR station, WICN (Worcester Public Radio).
