History –

Founded in 2013, Locked Into Vacancy Entertainment grew from the idea of creating original stories in the style of classic, old-time, radio of the 1940’s. On August 22nd, 2013, L.I.V.E. performed their first show at the Christian Fellowship Church in Chicago, IL. Under the name The Broson’s Lozenges Astounding Imagination Showcase Extravaganza Radio Show. The performance consisted of three original serials, and three satirical commercials. Since that first show, L.I.V.E. has performed on a bi-monthly basis, then moving to a monthly basis, producing more than a hundred original stories, commercials, and songs across the greater Chicagoland area with a company of over 30 artists—including actors, writers, directors, musicians, Foley specialists, technicians, and designers.
