Abstract (Document Summary)

[Tony Palermo] says that [Cliff Thorsness] has visited the museum's workshops and has offered sound-effects advice as well as stories about the glory days of radio. "We have to realize that these sound-effect fellows really were artists," Palermo says. "Sound effects are not just an instrument or machine, it was how people manipulated them to create a certain unique noise."

Gregg Heacock has been bringing his son Graham to workshops for the past two years. As an English teacher at Dorsey High School in Los Angeles, Heacock is impressed that kids attending the workshops are picking up valuable reading techniques.

* "Re-Creating Radio" workshops are held Saturday mornings, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., at the Museum of Television & Radio, 465 N. Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills. Workshops are for children ages 9 to 14. Cost of the workshop is $5 a person or $125 for groups up to 20. Reservations are required. The radio studio is also available for private parties. For more information and reservations, call (310) 786-1014. Upcoming workshops include: Saturday: "Radio Ranger"; June 10: "[Rick Lowell], Private Eye (Part 3)"; June 17: "Grim Scary Tales."
