After her father had checked into the Oak Park Arms Retirement Community, they thought about putting on a show. It him them – radio.
They’ve been performing live versions of classic radio programs at the Arms since 2002. Calling themselves Those Thrilling Days Of Yesteryear, the group is comprised of actors and directors the couple has known for years. All volunteer their services to bring joy to the residents and general public – taking them back to a simpler time when people gathered around the family radio.
