The HOT Company was a general theatre company, but I got involved with them because they were doing a live
production of Welles' radio play War of the Worlds. I was the only guy they knew who had a script! They continued to do live
(mostly) radio shows, some over three hours in length. We felt guilty stealing existant plays and wrote our own. I wrote about
a dozen and appeared in all of them. I also was in plays by other writers (with an occasional "tribute" segment of famous
radio bits from the past). I did mostly character parts and difficult accents.
Alan Weaver is a friend of mine, who in this case has taken over the role usually played by his brother Larry
Weaver. Larry and I are physically very similar, which was fun for the stage presentation but of course did not lend itself
to any humor over the radio. Pity. I doubt the Weaver boys will mind their pictures being run with their names attached on
this obscure website.
