Step back in time to the golden age of radio comedy
with those two old-fashioned girls, Ada and Elsie.
When the wireless was the centre of the entertainment
universe, Ada and Elsie’s unique brand of comedy was
broadcast around Australia for sixteen years.

Ada & Elsie: Wacko-the-Diddle-oh! recreates the spirit of
1940s live radio entertainment. The glamour, the music,
the live sound effects, the off-air drama—including being
banned by the Postmaster General!

According to a 1953 ‘Radio Roundup’ Ada and Elsie were
“ribald in a ladylike way and most genteely vulgar.
And very, very funny! One of the brightest listening
spots of the week.” Before Kath & Kim, before Eddy & Patsy, there was
Ada & Elsie!
