Old-Time Radio Readings – Join the fun!

6.30.2014oldtimeradioFibber McGee and Molly, the Great Gildersleeve, Mr. and Mrs. North, Sky King, Ma Perkins…are you acquainted with any of these names?  If so, you are a part of a very select group of people who remember turning on a radio dial and tuning into the hilarious, exciting, awesome adventures of these personalities who came out of the Golden Days of Radio.  

Would you like to recreate these wonderful memories?  Then please join us at the North Center Senior Satellite to participate in a radio script reading group.  We meet at the Center every Tuesday, 12:30 to 1:30, to research and read old-time radio scripts which are available online.  So far we have about a dozen participants but would welcome more to help with research, reading and writing scripts, sound effects, commercials, music, voice coaching, and announcing.

Our first “broadcast” will be July 3rd, 12:30 pm., when the the North Center Senior Satellite marks its sixth anniversary.  Festivities begin at 10 am.  We will present a spoof on the famous 1957 black and white film, “Twelve Angry Men.”   Be sure to tune us in!


Forward Chicago, an all-volunteer nonprofit organization, envisions our neighborhoods as model communities for people of all ages, where residents can age in place while remaining active, engaged and influential.
