WCCR presents ‘The Shadow,’ Esquire’s 1944 All-Americans

Published 5:07 pm Wednesday, February 15, 2012

The Western Carolina Classic Radio Club will meet Monday, Feb. 20 at 2 p.m. in Studio 118 on the ICC-Polk Campus.
The old-time radio show will be the “Shadow” program called “The Black Rock.” This 1939 program takes place on a strange island off the coast of Nova Scotia.
The “Shadow” radio show ran under several titles from 1934-1954 and for many years was the most popular daytime radio show. Its phrase, “Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men,” is probably the best-remembered line in old-time radio.
The radio TV presentation will be a club comedy special.
Professor Hoyt returns from his gig in Las Vegas to conduct his trivia quiz.
At approximately 3:05 p.m., the Winter Jazz Series will feature Essquire Magazine’s 1944 All-American Jazz Band with the greatest living jazz musicians, including Armstrong, Tatum, Hines, Hampton, Holiday, Teagarden, Cole, Shaw and others.
Everyone is welcome to this free event.
