The Early Days of Radio with Evan Weiner on Zoom or in person

The Early Days of Radio with Evan Weiner on Zoom or in person

Thursday, January 13

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm



Thursday, January 13th at 7:00 pm. The early days of radio were a mixture of sports, music, comedies, dramas, soap operas and information.  Radio became the theater of the imagination as people “watched” radio shows around the living room. Among those shows were the Jack Benny Program, Superman and dramas such as War Of The Worlds.  Virtually every big name in entertainment had a radio show. Television would
eventually surpass radio but the stars of early TV were recruited from NBC and CBS radio. Earlier TV owes its success to radio veterans including
Benny, Groucho Marx, Bob Hope and others.
Evan Weiner is a speaker, author, with a radio and TV background.
Evan Weiner will be in the Village Center conducting this program.  You can choose to attend on Zoom or you can come to the Village Center to attend the meeting in person. Masks are required while attending this program, in the Village Center, and we ask that you please follow all NYS health guidelines.
