Join us for a special program to learn about "the fear you can hear." Radio historian Steve Darnall will explore how radio brought mystery and horror to life for listeners during its Golden Age. You will also get to hear classic moments from some of radio's best-known mystery and horror programs that entertained (as well as frightened) people during this time period. Program registration will close 30 minutes prior to the start of the program. Participants will be emailed a Zoom access code 15 minutes before the start of the program. So please include your email in the registration. Please note: You must sign into the room prior to the start of the program. Admittance to the classroom will close five minutes after the program's start time. Space is limited.
