By the end of World War II, Bob Hope was one of the world’s biggest stars of show business, but he got his start on radio, taking his vaudeville show on the road to entertain troops. Join us for this discussion on the tools of the trade that made Hope famous: radio.
All day, members of the Jefferson Amateur Radio Club will be stationed throughout campus to interact with visitors and explain how amateur radio works. Also, catch a special appearance by WTUL Kids Show DJ Liz E (Kids Director Liz Elliot).
Program supported by the Bob & Dolores Hope Foundation, with special thanks to the World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum.
