Those Thrilling Days of Yesteryear is a radio troupe comprised of professional actors and voiceover artists who have been providing top-notch radio recreations at the Oak Park Arms for more than ten years. Each actor and technician donates talent and time.

Sound effects were an important part of live radio shows, and the group performs them live. They have a real door for slamming, buzzers, a sound board and shoes for footsteps and doorbells.

The shows are very popular with Oak Park Arms’ residents and people from the community. Some even bring their children and grandchildren to show them what entertainment was like before television.

A reception with coffee and cookies follows the performance.

The Oak Park Arms is a rental retirement community which provides independent and assisted living apartments and a full schedule of activities and services. Furnished apartments are also available for a short-term stay – a weekend, a week, a month or longer.

The radio show is free and open to the public. For more information call 708-386-4040.
