The Early Days of Radio: A Look at the Golden Age of Broadcasting  

A review of the early pioneers of broadcast radio as it swept the nation in the 1920s, 30s and 40s. We'll hear examples of innovative ways in which "theatre of the mind" blossomed during those years with special emphasis on the many contributors of its genesis including the young Orson Welles and his controversial "War of the Worlds Broadcast. We'll also examine the reasons for the demise of this art form after World War II and its surprising rebirth through the creation of the deejay format due to the simultaneous emergence of rock n' roll to mainstream America.
