LLI: The Golden Age of Radio with Convener Dan Dillman

Come with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear when we gathered around the radio and let our minds wander. Don’t touch that dial! The Shadow Knows. We’ll sample some of the great programs from these categories: humor, soaps, westerns,  creepies and private eyes/cops.

Convener: Dan Dillman is a Distinguished Professor of Geography, Emeritus, at Northern Illinois University. He recently convened two courses: How to Hide an Empire and Names on the Land, during the spring 2021 session.

The NIU Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI), established in 2000, is a member-directed group of individuals primarily age 50 plus who enjoy learning in informal, flexible, non-competitive groups and like connecting with peers who share their interests. No grades, no tests – just Learning for the Fun of It.
