Join us on zoom as we explore the golden age of broadcasting. Former Bay Area broadcaster John Jensen presents a review of the early pioneers of broadcast radio as it swept the nation in the 19020s, 30s, and 40s. You'll hear examples of innovative ways in which "theatre of the mind" blossomed with special emphasis on the trailblazers who paved the way. Featured will be actual dramas, comedies, news and children's programs that dominated the airwaves during those golden years. We'll also examine the causes for the demise of this art form after World War II and its surprising rebirth through the creation of the deejay format and the simultaneous emergence of Rock 'n' Roll to mainstream America. 

Join us for this event on zoom.
