Tragedy has driven Danny Randle to a small East Tennessee town, which he now identifies every working day with the words, “This is Radio Station WRNT, the voice of Ramona, Tennessee.”
Other voices join the airwaves, too, as each week, Danny introduces someone from the community and WRNT becomes their radio soapbox – Ramona’s Radio Soapbox.
The varied cast of Soapboxers includes a Bible-belting preacher, a retired country doctor, an unwashed janitor, the newspaper editor, a Dutch immigrant, the local sheriff, and a retired black baseball player whose inadvertent on-the-air remark provokes a vindictive lawsuit.
And then there is the mystery woman who delivers her Soapbox comments anonymously. Her voice captivates Danny and he nearly loses his life before discovering her identity.
Ramona’s Radio Soapbox scripts these storylines with creative insight and humor. The author, a former radio announcer, writes with the authenticity of one who has often held the microphone and talked to an unseen audience.
