Old time radio revisited at March 22 Homewood Library program

Take time to relive the live performances of radio programs from the 20th century when the Friends of the Homewood Library present a 2 p.m. show March 22 by Those Were the Days Radio Players at Homewood Public Library.

This group uses original music and scripts from radio plays that were family entertainment before there was television. The audience will get to see how sound effects are done helping listeners believe they’re hearing a story from a dusty ranch or a sinking ship. 

Those Were the Days Radio Players was founded in 1992 by fans of long-time radio host Chuck Shaden, who presented a program under the name Those Were the Days on WNIB-FM.  There are chapters of Those Were the Days Radio Players throughout the Chicago area. The performance at the Homewood Public Library will feature the south chapter, including member Randy Larson of Homewood. 

This program is free and open to the public.
