Publisher's Summary

Dying is easy. It’s the Apocalypse that’s hard. Before the outside world devolved into a fiery pit of hell, Noel and Julia hosted a successful and wonderfully pretentious community radio show. Now their basement studio is their survival bunker, and they find themselves completely alone. With no escape and nothing left except an increasingly eclectic selection of questionable records, Noel and Julia proudly debut their new show: Is Anyone Alive Out There?. How could they create a stellar show when they really just need to survive? How could they possibly find guests for their show under these circumstances? In this musical, the two hosts navigate life without food, water, resources, comforts, and other people. As the absurdity grows and the situation becomes dire, Noel and Julia realize that if the heat doesn’t kill them, their own passive-aggressiveness will.

I give it 1.21 gigawatts!

What a fantastic duo! Their repartee is quick and smart and very funny, and their musical elements were stellar. Woven into the story were some great send-ups of lost records one might find in the vault of a lonely public radio outpost, but the high water mark for me was the infectious number they crafted around a classic movie. Very talented performers and writers.
There is also an interesting unlisted special guest that was a cool surprise.
An excellent listen!

Brilliant fun

Noel and Julia are a tremendously talented duo who bring the fun script to life. Their singing is superb and the musical parodies are brilliant. This was a delight from beginning to end.

So fun and somewhat timely?

Loved the story and performance! During these times of staying home due to Covid 19 seemed very funny! Loved the music choices. These had to be original to story.

Funny but that great. Waste of 1 credit.

It is quite short compared to most books/stories, it slapstick humor which wears out quickly. Probably good for a few people but not most.
