- About Us
Wooster Footlights was a radio-comedy troupe founded in the ancient days of the early 1990s. They were all students at the College of Wooster in Ohio and broadcast their show on the colleges radio station WCWS every Friday. This 2 hour show was a loose collection of skits, parodies, and music, with all original content written and performed by Footlights 13 members. Back then, WCWS was lucky to get a campus audience. Broadcasting at full power was not an option because the radio antenna played havoc with the experiments of the Physics Department. Thus, the Footlights group rarely reached an off-campus audience. Until now. We have begun to digitize our old cassette tape recordings of those broadcasts and share them with you as a podcast. Although many of the references are severely dated, and some of the humor is shockingly derivative, this podcast series collects together a significant portion of the groups output at its height.
