Discussion and Desserts with Murray Horwitz

Thursday, February 11, 2021


Have you tuned your radio to 88.5 FM on a Sunday night and heard an episode of Gunsmoke or Dragnet?  It’s The Big Broadcast, WAMU’s longest running program, hosted by Town resident Murray Horwitz.  Each week, Murray weaves together shows from the golden age of radio with historical tidbits and connections to entertainment today.  Join us for a moderated discussion on Zoom during which Murray will discuss why radio from the 30’s through the 50’s continues to draw listeners, how he curates each week’s program, and how he handles early radio’s limited approach to women and diversity.  Murray, a Tony-Award winning playwright, lyricist and broadcaster, has been affiliated with public broadcasting and National Public Radio for more than 30 years and was instrumental in starting Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!  Please RSVP to townoffice@townofchevychase.org to receive the Zoom link.
