If you have never been to a REPS monthly meeting you may be wondering what it's all about. Well, it's a rather casual affair actually . The meeting starts at 2PM ( but come a little early to gather and socialize). At 2 PM we begin the meeting with a few announcements and then begin our program. The program varies from month to month. We may have as our special guest a visiting personality who appeared on many of the classic radio shows, or we will often present a re-creation of a classic radio show featuring music and sound effects. We do interviews and presentations on just about any topic related to old time radio. We generally take a break for 15-20 minutes ,in the middle of the meeting, to partake in the treats and coffee that are served at each meeting. The meeting runs till 4PM. If you appreciate old time radio, you should make a point of visiting a REPS monthly meeting when you can. Think about attending our next gathering. We'd love to meet you.
2pm - We'll present a live holiday performance of Our Miss Brooks
