Each year, the gathering features live recreations of classic radio plays by all-star casts, memorabilia, music, historical presentations and interviews with stars. Sean Dougherty from Friends of Old Time Radio tells me its the largest event of its kind as well as the longest-running. This is the group's 33rd event and it annually strives to gather not only fans of the OTR genre but original performers from the era and radio professionals.
In a press release, FOTR Chairman, Jay Hickerson notes the original Golden Age of Radio is considered to have spanned 1932 to 1962 and adds, "Our convention has thrived longer than the era it celebrates. We are still having fun every year, and we are very proud."
