There's something about the Golden Age of cinema, radio, and television that continues to draw new fans and keep old fans coming back for more.
While interest in Golden Age entertainment is often described as "nostalgia," podcaster Adam Graham, host of three separate old time radio podcasts suggest that interest in the golden age is more than that. In this 8,000 word manifesto, Graham explains what is so appealing about golden age entertainment, drawing from such examples as the genuineness of stars like Lou Costello and Jimmy Durante to the swelling patriotism of World War II films, the artistry of Hollywood Production Code films such as Gone With the Wind, and the universal appeal of television programs such as I Love Lucy and the Andy Griffith Show.
What Made the Golden Age Shine is an appreciation of the enduring strength of the work of entertainment pioneers and a must for fans of classic television, film, and radio.
