Golden Age of Radio

Sunday Nights from 6:00 - 8:00pm

There was a time before the Internet, iPods, movies and home theater...back in the day, in the 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s, when families sat around the living room radio, to be swept away with comedy and adventure. Even the current news was a cheap way of being entertained. Most nights, in neighborhoods all over the U.S., families would come together and listen to radio broadcasts of their favorite shows, such as Our Miss Brooks, The Life of Riley, Suspense, Lights Out, Box 13, Gunsmoke, The Lone Ranger and more. Radio broadcasts were so much a part of everyday life that they could influence listeners en masse, such as the night Orson Welles told millions about an impending alien invasion from Mars in a “War of the Worlds,” aired on October 31, 1938. Re-live those times with vintage radio shows on kHEN’s Golden Age of Radio.
