Cloak and Dagger On the Air Season 7 Begins Saturday

This Saturday, Feb. 10, at 4 p.m. at the Top of West Virginia Convention and Visitors Bureau, Cloak and Dagger On the Air will launch its seventh season with an episode titled Another Leap in Time.
“Four years ago, in 2020, our last episode before lockdown was titled Leap in Time,” Pete Fernbaugh, executive producer and head writer for Cloak and Dagger On the Air, said. “It was a leap year, and it seemed like a fun idea to do three time travel stories. Now that we’re in another leap year, we thought we’d revisit the concept. Hopefully, this leap year will go differently than the last one!”
The three stories are “A Gun for Dinosaur” by L. Sprague de Camp and adapted by Ernest Kinoy, in which big-game hunters use a time machine to travel back to the Mesozoic Era to track and kill dinosaurs; “Mars Is Heaven” by Ray Bradbury and adapted by Ernest Kinoy, where a space expedition to Mars is shocked to find their loved ones waiting for them when they land; and “A Time to Be Born and a Time to Die” by Wyllis Cooper, which tells the story of a man’s life from youth to adulthood and the decisions that shape his destiny.
Also in the mix will be the latest installment of Emily Penelope’s Fabulous Flights of Fancy by Pete Fernbaugh.
“Each story confronts the philosophy of time in a unique way,” Fernbaugh said. “In ‘A Gun for Dinosaur,’ we see how man is keen on using time travel for his own indulgent ends. ‘Mars Is Heaven’ looks at our nostalgia for the past and our anticipation of being reunited with it in the future. And ‘A Time to Be Born, A Time to Die’ takes Solomon’s ancient writings and transfers its context to modern times. What are the decisions we make every day that shape how time steers our lives?”
Beginning at 3:30 p.m. with R.J. Gaudio, Troubadour, providing a warm-up acoustic set, Cloak and Dagger On the Air: Another Leap in Time will commence at 4 p.m. at Top of West Virginia Convention and Visitors Bureau, located at 3539 Main Street, Weirton (across from Ferguson Tire Pros).
