Martin Grams, Jr., "Duffy's Tavern," & the Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention

I've written a number of times, in this space, about author and researcher Martin Grams, Jr.  He's written many books about Old-Time Radio shows, and vintage television programs. (One of his best-known books is 2008's The Twilight Zone: Unlocking the Door to a Television Classic.)

Martin has appeared several times on my weekly radio program; one of those appearances was this past week.  It's always a pleasure speaking with him. 

We talked about his forthcoming book about the well-known radio program Duffy's Tavern (which also aired, briefly, on television); the book will be released later this year. 

We also discussed the upcoming "Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention," which is overseen by Martin and his wife Michelle.  

The convention is in its eighth year, and will take place from September 19-21, in Hunt Valley, Maryland.

Here, too, is the link for Martin's website:
