ROCKLAND — Fire up the woodstove, break out the board games, and crank up the radio as Strand On The Air, the Strand Theatre’s original radio variety show, does its part to fight cabin fever in its February broadcast. The latest installment, the “Cabin Fever Edition,” will be broadcast Sunday, Feb. 27, at 5 p.m. and can be heard by tuning in to WRFR at 93.3 in Rockland or by streaming at Following their broadcasts, the shows are made available to stream on the Strand Theatre website at, and as a podcast.

In the “Cabin Fever Edition,” House Manager Liz McLeod, announcer Dan Bookham, musical director Brittany Parker, and the Strand Family Players will clear the way to springtime in an hour full of laughs and tunes. Special musical guests GoldenOak will offer a quick preview of their upcoming June 10 Strand concert. The intrepid journalists of All Things Rescinded will take a look at the burgeoning new pandemic-inspired musical genre of “grumblecore,” featuring the radio debut of the hard-driving alternative band “Karen’s Spleen,” along with a nostalgic look at town meeting season as it used to be, and a preview of our coming travails with mud season. Professor Dan Bookham will offer a poetic rumination on the unpredictability of late-winter weather, and down in Abysmal Point, Mrs. Grunden, Lilita, and the gang will gather round the kitchen table to drive off the winter blues with a hard-fought no-quarter-asked-and-none-given game of full-contact Monopoly.

This show is presented by recording by the Strand Theatre.
