Published 9:50 am Wednesday, July 13, 2011

The Western Carolina Classic Radio (WCCR) Club will meet Monday July 18 at 2 p.m. in Studio 118 on the ICC Polk Campus in Columbus.
The vintage radio show will be the Inner Sanctum program “The Corridor of Doom,” starring Boris Karloff. The show first aired October 23, 1945.
Inner Sanctum Mysteries started broadcasting Jan. 7, 1941 and ended Oct.  5, 1952. Raymond Edward Johnson was the host.
Using only his first name, he would always end the show saying, “and now it’s time to close the squeaking door… good night… pleasant dreams.”
Professor Hoyt will keep everyone guessing at intermission with his excellent trivia quiz. The radio/tv program will be the club comedy special, “The Invisible Glass”.
Around 3:05 p.m. the Summer Jazz Series will put the spotlight on the Progressive Jazz period during the 1940s on Wonderful Olde Tyme Jazz (WOTJ). Come listen to Getz, Parker, Gillespie, Mingus, Roach, Powell and others as they focus on this significant period in jazz history.
Everyone is welcome for an hour and a half of good clean fun.
