Radio Turns 100
Thursday, April 276:00—8:00 PMCynthia B. Fox Community RoomSharon Public Library11 North Main St., Sharon, MA, 02067
Join longtime New England radio and TV personality, Mike Morin, as he hosts an in-person multi-media presentation about radio's golden age. The presentation will include original audio clips (dating back to 1920) of celebrities such as Lucille Ball, Milton Berle, Jack Benny, Groucho Marx and key historic moments such as War of the Worlds and FDR's Fireside Chats. The presentation will also highlight female performers and early African American hosts, many of whom had very little exposure outside of the Black community. It will wrap up with humorous, untold stories of modern radio, and with an unexpectedly touching and funny interview by Mike Morin himself with a sitting president the day before the election.
The presentation will span for about an hour and will be followed by a Q&A and discussion. Then, Mike will remain available after the program to sell/sign his book, Fifty Shades of Radio: True Stories of a Morning Radio Guy Being Wired, Tired and Fired: a memoir of his career.
