“Radio Waves” off the air forever

Norma Shearer helps "Radio Waves Over Hollywood" say goodbye. Doesn't she look sad?

You may have noticed a few Thursdays have come and gone with no exciting updates about the “Radio Waves Over Hollywood” show. 

Unfortunately, the show has ended and  sadly it wasn’t given the chance to have a season finale.

Two weeks ago, one of the computers in the radio station that runs the radio program we use got a virus. After a week, it still wasn’t fixed and all radio shows had been canceled.

I was able to record a couple of the shows, so I will be putting those videos up in the near future.  Sadly, I won’t be returning with my show in the fall because I am graduating on May 7.

I loved my show and enjoyed doing it. I want to thank all of you who listened in each week for my ramblings about classic film.  It was an exciting and relaxing run.

So in my best Lux Radio Cecil B. Demille impression: “Goodnight to you, from Hollywood.”
