WAR OF THE WORLDS
Project Down & Dirty is myTalk 107.1’s award-winning reality-show-on-the-radio that doubles as a fundraiser. Project Down & Dirty Classic Radio Drama was our comedic re-interpretation of Orson Welles’ WAR OF THE WORLDS. Our charity partners for 2020 – the 10th year of this event- are greatly impacted by covid-19 and all work on the frontlines of the pandemic in some capacity.
Meet The Charities!
