On the air with ‘Comet Over Hollywood’

Joan Crawford on Lux Radio Theater

‘Comet Over Hollywood’ is going to be streaming live on Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Some of you may know that I am a Mass Communication-Journalism student at Winthrop University in South Carolina. All students at Winthrop have the opportunity to apply to have a show with Winthop’s radio station, WINR.  I wanted a radio show to help broaden my journalism skills and get an opportunity to talk more about my favorite topic, classic films.

Starting this week until the end of the semester in December, I have a radio show called “Radio Waves Over Hollywood” which will be linked to my blog. I will discuss old movies along with playing songs from old films and musicals, particularly from my six disc “That’s Entertainment” boxset.

I also hope to bring in friends and Winthrop students who are fellow classic film enthusiasts that could discuss films with me. You already can look foward to a debate I have lined up: Buster Keaton or Charlie Chaplin.

What’s great about the radio show is that you can listen online and get a more personal feel about my movie interests rather than just reading my rants. You can leave comments on the blog that I can answer on air or you can even call and talk to me personally on the air at 803-323-2122!

I plan to post every Wednesday or Thursday and tell you a few of the planned topics for the evening.

A few topics for September 2:
-College in the movies
-Discussion of Latin culture in films
-Remakes vs. Original

I also will be playing music and feel free to call in (803-323-2122) and give your opinion about anything I say.

So tune in on Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.  live stream on www.winrfm.com (go to Listen Live.  If it doesn’t work, you may need to download something to trouble shoot or you can go to the old WINR website) or Channel 99 if you live on campus.
