Upcoming Meetings

Our February meeting will feature club memeber Fred Berney who is going to tell us all about "Radio Actors Who Made Children's Records." He'll be playing some of the recordings made by those actors. So join us for a bit of nostalgia!

Our March program is a Jack French special:"A Word From Our Sponsor", an interactive review of radio commercials over the years. Audience members will sing some of the classics and can volunteer to read commercials; prizes will be awarded to those who do the best selling job. Club members also will re-create a parody on commercials originally performed by Fred Allen and Tallulah Bankhead.
