Virtual Event: Lights Out, Everybody – Mystery and Horror during the Golden Age of Radio
Thursday August 12 @ 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
This virtual presentation uses sound clips from some of radio’s best known mystery and horror programs (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.”
Steve Darnall is the host of a radio show in Chicago (Those Were the Days) dedicated to the “Golden Age” of radio. Over the years, he’s spoken at dozens of libraries on topics related to different aspects of radio history.
