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

Those Thrilling Days of Yesteryear features actors and voice over artists who share a common interest – performing old time radio programs for the community. Actors and technicians donate their talent and time.

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

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.
