About this event:
Written and performed by W. Allen Taylor, this 90-minute award-winning solo show explores the intimate story of his life-long search for the father he never knew, Bill Hawkins, the first black radio disc jockey in Cleveland, Ohio. The search becomes a bittersweet journey of self-discovery as well as a celebration of the rich cultural legacy of black radio.
“….a breathtaking kaleidoscopic gallery of effortlessly drawn, economically minimal, but surgically accurate thumbnail sketches of the broad range of folks ….distinctly brought to life with the most human credibility.”
—Cleveland Free Press
