Old-Time Radio Convention, Newark, NJ

"The 2008 Friends of Old-Time Radio Convention" will be running from October 23rd until October 26th, at the Holiday Inn-North, in Newark, New Jersey. I've just been added to a panel discussion taking place at the convention--at 2 p.m. on the 23rd.

The panel features several writers, including Ben Ohmart, who runs BearManor Media (publisher of The Lucky Strike Papers); in addition to his work as publisher, Ben has written a number of show business-related books (including biographies of Joan Davis, Paul Frees, and Daws Butler). Trivia expert Mel Simons is also on the panel; BearManor has brought out several books by Mel (including The Old-Time Radio Trivia Book).

Another panelist will be Janet Cantor Gari, one of the daughters of Eddie and Ida Cantor. She'll discuss the book she's written about her mother, Don't Wear Silver in the Winter; the book is also published by BearManor Media.
