The Popular Culture Research Working Group and the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities will host “Anarchy on the Airwaves: The Threat and Magic of Cleveland’s Radio & TV Scene” Sept. 13. Radio and TV historian Mike Olszewski will lead the event, which begins at 6 p.m. in Clark Hall 206.
During the talk, Olszewski will discusses the changes that have occurred in commercial broadcasting over the past 90 years—and especially how Northeast Ohio led the way in the transition from radio to television in the 1950s and 1960s. He’ll also dive into the programming and personalities that shaped entire generations and their contributions to popular culture.
