January 22: Lecture on Walter Reed radio show in WW2
Michael Henry of the University of Maryland's Library of American Broadcasting has let me know about a lecture he's doing:
Parks Johnson's radio show Vox Pop visited Walter Reed on March 15, 1943. Co-host Warren Hull specifically refers to the fact that they are broadcasting from the "Red Cross Recreation Hall". On Saturday January 22, I will be giving a presentation about the broadcast at the Radio & Television Museum in Bowie, MD. The event is free and open to the public. The presentation will start at 2pm. The museum is located at 2608 Mitchellville Rd in Bowie.
Pictures of the show being done at Walter Reed are online.
