The Museum of Television & Radio has scheduled its first “salute to radio” with a two-week festival set for Oct. 23-Nov. 3.
The event, commemorating the medium’s 75th anniversary, includes seminars, educational and kids events and live broadcasts from the museum’s studio.
Among the highlights are sessions featuring Casey Kasem, Charles Osgood, Garrison Keillor and Rush Limbaugh, who will discuss the evolution of the talkradio format.
Also, episodes of radio-themed TV series – including “WKRP in Cincinnati,” “Midnight Caller,” “Frasier” and “NewsRadio” – will be screened.
The museum has set up a radio festival phone line for more information: (212) 621-6709.
