Upcoming Meetings

For our October meeting, Jack French and club members will be presenting a "Candy Matson" recreation As Jack stated, "The script is an original I wrote, based on the characters created by Monty Masters on the 1949-51 series." There will be full sound effects!

For our November meeting, member Lawrence Kandrach will present a program timed for Veterans Day on the theme of RADIO AND THE G.I. He will present audio clips and one special video element that will highlight radio programming that was made for, and available only to, GIs that were serving in overseas war zones. As his accompanying narratives will highlight, the programming, primarily featuring Command Performance material,was intended not just to provide a link to "Home", but also to provide information and elevate morale. These half-hour programs featured top performers from across the entertainment community encompassing Hollywood, radio, popular and classical music, sports, and novelty elements - and all featured acts were presented free and only by request of the GI audience.
