Shelves of antique radios

A Beginner's Guide to the Golden Age of Radio (Zoom/Phone)

Jun 23 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Over the last century, radio has gone from a novelty to a necessity, thanks to the efforts of those men and women who were part of its "Golden Age." Join radio historian Steve Darnall for a look back at the days when radio was a "theater of the mind," with samples of the era's biggest shows and stars, including Jack Benny, Bob Hope, The Shadow and more!

Steve Darnall is the host of the radio show "Those Were the Days" and the publisher of the national magazine "Nostalgia Digest," both dedicated to the "Golden Age" of entertainment. He has more than a decade of experience as a radio historian and lecturer, and has written for The National Radio Hall of Fame, Marvel Comics and the Chicago Tribune.

Co-sponsored by the Friends of the Library, East Brunswick Arts Commission, and the East Brunswick Department on Aging.
