Congratulations to our 2023 Teen Short Radio Drama Winners

Congratulation to all of the amazingly creative, teen radio drama producers who wowed the experienced literary, theatrical and radio producer judges with their five-minute original audio productions. Access Sacramento applauds ALL of the contestants for their productions.

Here are the short dramas that rose to the top of the field and will air on Access Sacramento’s non-profit public access low-frequency radio station, KUBU 96.5 LF-FM (where you can be you!), and here in the LISTEN section of this website at 3 pm on Sunday, May 28th, 2023.
