Upcoming Meetings

The August program is called "what's your driver's I.Q.?" Sandra Pitts-Malone will present excerpts from various radio shows focused on driving tests and problems with cars. The program will be restricted to radio presentations although at least one led to the same script on an early tv sitcom! This presentation brings out the humorous side of those learning to drive and their flustered relatives or friends!

The September meeting will be a "15-Minute Episode Night." The evening will be devoted to humorous sketches, including "Raising Junior," a 1930s husband-wife comedy that Edgar Farr Russell, one of our members, directed at a national OTR convention in Newark, NJ. Also scheduled: "Baby Snooks" and "Easy Aces".

September 16 is the Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention. The club will be presenting "Chicken Heart," an episode from the "Lights Out" horror drama series. In a lighter vein, attendees can also participate in a radio quiz for candy bar prizes.
The club's presentation will be at noon, Saturday, September 16 at the Delta Hotels Baltimore Hunt Valley hotel, 245 Shawan Road, Hunt Valley, MD. The club appearance is part of the 3-day Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention. Daily admission is charged. For more information, see MidAtlanticNostalgiaConvention.com.
