Long before Lake Wobegon became part of our collective fictional geography, there must've been other lakes on the radio. And there were. Stephen Leacock's Lake Wissanotti, right outside the town of Mariposa, was one of Canada's most popular and endearing fictional places. This reissue of a 1946 CBC Stage Series adaptation of Leacock's comic sketches and observations offers a double layer of nostalgia by taking a fond look back at early twentieth-century small-town Canadian life through the venue of 1940s radio. The voices, acting styles, big-production, and comic use of the well-written musical score are very representative of the best from that "Golden Age" of radio. Being faithfully transported to a gentler, simpler time provides a good introduction to Leacock's bright Canadian spirit. B.P. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
