Our November 8 program will be presented by club member Lawrence Kandrach who will assume the persona of "Stay Up Stan the All-Night Record Man" in presenting a program of Swing Era novelty tunes.
While some songs may have been "hits" and quite familiar, he guarantees he will spin some discs that will be completely new to you. Put on your jitterbug shoes, turn up your hearing aids, and prepare to tap your fingers and your feet (plus enjoy some cleverly constructed and laugh-out-loud lyrics).
Our December program will be our annual winter luncheon. We will be celebrating our club's 35th anniversary at our December luncheon.

MANC - 2019
On Saturday, September 14, 2019, the MWOTRC assembled at the Mid Atlantic Nostalgia Convention in Hunt Valley. Our monthly program included audience members performing Fred Allen scripts and a recreation of Dragnet from August 2, 1951. Club members also presented presentations: John Abbott spoke about Johnny Dollar recent discoveries, and Michael Hayde spoke on Jack Webb and Dragnet.
