The “Nutmeg Junction” radio show featuring the vocals of many local actors has moved along from its first episode in Torrington, into the heartland, and is now heard on 16 stations in many states including California. Amazingly, it has all happened in four short years. Known as an audio theater program, it does pay homage to the golden age of scripted radio programs.
J. Timothy Quirk, who writes all the scripts for the program, credits its rising popularity to the “old time” storytelling quality made new and its exceptional vocal actors. He also considers a quote from Steve Martin to be a driving force: “Be so good, they can’t ignore you.”
