The Story Of Ralph Radio
Our shows are dedicated to the memory of Ralph "Radio" Steadman, with love.
Ralph Steadman was an improvisational actor, preacher, radio host and lover of life, who performed at stations and stages in the NW and West Coast. His nickname "Ralph Radio" was born during his time on NW radio stations, most notably at 620 KGW, The Talk Station from 1989 to 1991. You can hear some of his 620 KGW radio shows online at RalphRadio.com.
Everything Ralph touched was imbued with his passion for the arts, for family, and for inspiring the best in people. His last role was in his homeland Eugene, Oregon, in December 2014, where he was featured as Jacob Marley along with other characters in A Christmas Carol. He was at the top of his game and gave a transcendent performance. Then just a few days later, on Christmas Eve, Ralph left this world unexpectedly.
As his producer and friend for many years, I am moved to continue creating in the spirit of all that Ralph loved...radio, history, community and most of all family. The Ralph Radio Theatre is dedicated to Ralph and to all of these things. Our debut play series "A Christmas From Home", set in WWII, is a project that he would have supported with all of his heart and soul. We are proud to bring this important work back to the stage. It is our hope that it will become a favorite Portland tradition for you and your family for many years to come.
Yours In Light, Mystic Kimberly
