The show is recorded for radio broadcast at a later date. The audience must be in their seats 15 minutes before the start of the show.
The Red Jacket Jamboree is a production of Real People Media and Main Street Calumet, which produced the show’s precursor, The Red Metal Radio Show (RMRS) from 2009-2013. The Red Jacket Jamboree with add contemporary narratives to the historical features of the RMRS making it similar in format to shows like Fibber McGee and Molly and The Prairie Home Companion. The debut show in October will be followed by a full season of performances in 2018.
