The Big Broadcast of 2016

What is "The Big Broadcast"?

The Big Broadcast of 2016 is a live radio show on stage.

In the spirit of yesteryear, Peach City Radio’s Big Broadcast will feature a variety of musical acts, acting and comedy and a complete melodrama play.

Our live sound effects crew will introduce lively gizmos and gadgets to ensure the proper sound comes through the recording.

The audience is an important part of the show too!

During the comedic melodrama, we’ll cue the audience to “boo” the villain and “cheer” the hero! The whole show will also honor local radio history. A show quite like this has never been seen in Penticton… well at least not since 1936!

The Big Broadcast of 2014

History of "The Big Broadcast"...

Our 2014 performance pays tribute to a show called "The Big Broadcast" that was on the Shatford stage in March of 1936.

110 local performers entertained as if they were part of a radio show, but it was 12 years before CKOK signed on as Penticton’s first station. The 1936 event raised funds for Gyro Park and a bandshell that was erected that year. Our 2014 event will be broadcast and podcast shortly after the show and is raising funds to build Peach City Radio’s community radio studio in downtown Penticton.
