Freeport’s Golden Age of Wireless,
Original Radio Productions to be Performed

On Sunday, October 17th, 2:00pm at Freeport Community Library, Freeport’s Golden Age of Wireless, four original radio programs loosely based on Freeport history, will be performed and taped in front of a live audience.

On the four Sunday evenings in November (7, 14, 21 and 28), these shows will be aired on local fm station, WYAR 88.3.

Gather the family ‘round the radio’ for some original programming featuring a fictionalized version of history from each of four decades— 1910’s, 20’s, 30’s and 40’s.  You may recognize some specific places such as Grove Street Elementary School,  hear some familiar names such as Babe Ruth, or enjoy learning about past events  such as the building of the Red Oaks! And, music from each of the decades will be part of each radio show.

Tickets for the live production and taping are $5.00. and will be available at the door.

The Freeport Community Library is located on Library Drive (off of Main Street) in Freeport.
