WELCOME TO THE METROPOLITAN WASHINGTON OLD
TIME RADIO CLUB!
The Metropolitan Washington Old Time Radio Club (MWOTRC) was created in 1984 by Jim Burnette (1945-2001). The purpose of the club has always been to exchange, collect, and preserve any materials from the Golden Age of Broadcasting. Individually, and as a club, members collect and share OTR audio copies, books, scripts, and related radio broadcast materials. The initial group of charter members, consisting of a half-dozen OTR fans, was drawn from the region of Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia. Monthly meetings are held the second Friday of every month, except for June and December.
In June and December, there is a luncheon held on a Saturday afternoon.
Membership is open to all who have a love of old time radio programs.
Complete information about joining is found by pressing the JOIN button above on the radio dial.
MWORTC ELECTION RESULTS ANNOUNCED TO MEMBERSHIP
At the January meeting, the results of the election of officers were announced to all those
present by retiring president, Maury Cagle. The
ballots gave the presidency to Fred Berney, a
longtime member who had served as our vice
president and program chairman.
Michael Hayde was elected to the office of
vice president; he is a past president and our
current club archivist. William "Bill" Reader was
reelected to office as our treasurer and will
maintain all financial records.
Maury Cagle, our retiring president, was
thanked for his year long efforts in bringing
several improvements to the club, including the
drawing up of a new constitution, which was
drafted by Mark Bush, and will soon be presented
to the membership for their approval.
CAWELTI AWARD WINNER
Joanie Ferrell Langdon was voted the winner
of the Cawelti Award, a confirmation of her
dedication to the club. Her kindness, cooperation,
and cordial attitude is evident to the membership.
She was presented with the Cawelti Plaque,
which is a "traveling trophy" which she will have

"Jefferson Cup" engraved with her name, which is
a permanent souvenir of her Cawelti Award.
