First Unitarian Church, 1 West Franklin Street
Baltimore, 21201 United States
+ Google Map

From the Modernist Kagro Building at the corner of North and Maryland Avenues to the New Refuge Deliverance Cathedral at St. Paul and Chase Streets that has been covered in scaffolding for over a decade, Baltimore contains a number of distinct buildings that are highly visible, curiously vacant, and all but overlooked in plain sight. At this free talk and reception, architect and artist Jerome Gray will discuss his research into who built these places, who occupied them, who were supposed to be their stewards, and how these seemingly dull places actually contribute to Baltimore’s built environment.

Baltimore in the Golden Age of Radio

October 6 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Baltimore, MD United States + Google Map
$10

From Guglielmo Marconi’s experiments in sending audio signals via radio waves in the 1890s to the strains of Rock and Roll coursing through teenage ears in the 1960s, and everything in between, Baltimore historian Jack Burkert explores the Golden Age of Radio in the lives of Americans, with a special focus on Baltimore. In today’s world of internet and visual media, we forget how radio transformed America with national networks, new snazzy commercial jingles, and the story of how one company came to dominate the new radio market only to suddenly exit altogether. Of course, Mr. Burkert will take a look at Baltimore’s own radio stations, some of the broadcasts they transmitted, and a few of the charming personalities involved in the radio business along the way.
