Upcoming Meetings

Our February 8 meeting will be club member Don Klees who will discuss and show his video on Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar.

Our March 8 meeting will be club member Rob Farr, who will present "Stars of the Silents Speak!" Just like movie stars of the 1930s-50s, silent film stars such as Mary Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, Lillian Gish and Harold Lloyd made forays into radio. Often these were just single appearances, but in other cases it helped keep them in the public eye long after their motion picture careers ended. This program will offer a sampling of the often overlooked radio careers of the biggest silent stars.


Audio Cassettes for Sale!

From our Librarian:
"At the August meeting the club members present voted to disband the club's cassette library due to rental inactivity over the past few years. In an effort to keep as much as we can from hitting the landfill I would like to offer the members the opportunity to take entire series of their choosing on a first come first served basis. For the price of shipping I will mail you all the episodes we have of your favorite program. Please contact me at audio@mwotrc.com."
