Now in its second year, this script show takes the listeners to the theater with its descriptive commentary. The Characters are recreated, the scenes rebuilt and the story line carefully and skillfully developed around the musical score.

The shows to be broadcast are carefully selected for quality of scenario and score.
Commercial content for the one hour show includes opening, six one minute announcements and closing. Commercials are carefully placed in appropriate breaks, comparable to change of scene and intermissions.
The cost of sponsorship is $100 per week for one hour or $180 per week for both hours. The cost includes 2 promotion announcements per day for each hour. Promotions include sponsor identification.
Past commercial sponsors have been: Gartenhouse Furs, Kemp Mill Estates and Bell Savings and Loan.
The recent WQMR promotions which included a trip to New York to see two shows were built around this program. Both trips were sell outs at $50 per person...giving you some idea of the calibre(sic) of the audience of Matinee At One.
