The Appleton Boychoir Brings Back “The Golden Age of Radio.”

The Appleton Boychoir will kick off their 2016-17 Season with “The Golden Age of Radio” on Saturday, Oct. 22, at 4 pm in the Lawrence Memorial Chapel.

Join the Appleton Boychoir, along with Special Guest, Tony Palermo, as they transport you back to the 1930’s and 1940’s with THE GOLDEN AGE OF RADIO.  Model-A Ford’s were in the streets, the Great Depression was devastating the country, and America was about to send its young men and women to fight a World War.  Families gathered around their radios to hear live music, comedy, drama, and variety shows…all a welcome escape from those troubled times.

 Come and share a few old-time radio moments as the Boys sing, act, and recreate a very special part of American history: THE GOLDEN AGE OF RADIO.
