Golden Age of Radio

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, sitting around the living room radio and being swept away with comedy, adventure and even the current news was a cheap way of being entertained. It quickly grew to become a family tradition. 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 they could influence listeners on mass, such as the night Orson Welles told millions about an impending alien invasion from Mars … a “War of the Worlds.” (aired on 10-31-1938) Re-live those times with vintage radio shows and tune into kHEN’s Golden Age of Radio.
