It’s the feel-good event of the summer! Join Bob Stroud along with John Records Landecker, Tommy Edwards and more at the Museum of Broadcast Communications’ “Rock Radio Revisited” at The Des Plaines Theatre Sunday, August 14th at 3pm. The Museum of Broadcast Communications (MBC) is excited to present a celebration of the on-air personalities and music of rock & roll radio of a generation with ‘ROCK RADIO REVISITED’.

Former rock jock and WGN Radio’s Wendy Snyder steers this trip down memory lane as John Records Landecker and Tommy Edwards reminisce about the golden age of rock radio, along with stories about the DJ’s, the fans, the gimmicks, vintage air checks and more!
