Naked Radio

Music by Paul Libman
Book & Lyrics by
Dave Hudson

2017 Fall World Premiere

Two DJs. One Blizzard. No Records.

When a small radio station gets swallowed up by a corporate parent, the local DJs are relegated to obscurity. But when a snowstorm knocks the power out and the station loses its tie to the pre-programmed feed, the guys have to punt, and a rejuvenated station brings back spontaneity and joy to the community it serves. Dave Hudson and Paul Libman will be debuting their seventh musical comedy written exclusively for Northern Sky.
