Old Time Radio: Lights Out, Everybody

Cozby Library and Community Commons, Online

This virtual presentation uses sound clips from some of the best known mystery and horror programs from the Golden Age of radio (including Escape, Inner Sanctum and Lights Out) to illustrate how radio could truly be a "Theater of the mind" and use music, voices and sounds to create indelible — and often frightening — "pictures."  This program is suitable for all ages.  Children under 12 must have an adult present.  Registration is required- only one person per household needs to register.​

This program will be held via Zoom, a free online presentation platform.  Your confirmation e-mail will contain the information you need to join the program.

About the presenter: For more than a decade, Steve Darnall has had the opportunity to share his twin fascinations for American history and popular culture as the host of Those Were the Days and the publisher of Nostalgia Digest. During this time, he's had the chance to speak to thousands of radio fans across the country with seven different one-hour presentations, each one dedicated to different aspects of the "Golden Age" of radio.
