NOSTALGIA DIGEST CELEBRATES 40 YEARS--AND YOU'RE INVITED TO THE CELEBRATION!
A NEW MONTH AND ALL'S WELLES: THE NOSTALGIA DIGEST PODCAST IS HERE
At the beginning of 2012, in response to many requests, the Nostalgia Digest Podcast made its debut at this site! Devoted to people, performers, topics and shows that have been featured in the pages of Nostalgia Digest magazine, the Nostalgia Digest podcast lets you take the fun and memories of the Digest anywhere you go — and our new November Podcast offers an unusual look at the life of the great Orson Welles, as we talk with author Todd Tarbox abotu his new book concerning the "boy genius" and the man who was his mentor and friend. All of our Podcasts are available as free downloads for 12 months; to download the November 2014 Podcast or to get our past Podcasts, click here or check us out at iTunes.
And if you missed our early Podcasts, we've collected the first 12 (from 2012) on a single compact disc containing 12 mp3 files — including our very first Podcast with Digest founder Chuck Schaden, our conversations with Rich "Svengoolie" Koz and Museum of Broadcast Communications president Bruce Dumont, and others devoted to people, performers, topics and shows that we've featured within the pages of Nostalgia Digest--including Eve Arden, Abbott and Costello, Vic and Sade, Gunsmoke, Sam Spade, Nero Wolfe and much more!

Over the last year, thousands of old-time radio fans have turned out to hear Nostalgia Digest publisher and Those Were the Days host Steve Darnall talk about the Golden Age of Radio, sharing some stories and sound clips from some of the era's most memorable stars and shows! We have several such events planned for 2014 and we hope you can join us for one or more of the following (all events are in Illinois unless otherwise specified):
A "FACE" FOR RADIO
