Says You! takes the tense out of the present

Nothing is better than a book filled with questions from our radio-lab

A t-shirt with a logo that matches our app

A cap with a phrase – worthy of note

And finally, there’s our new twist on the gift that lasts forever  – yes, the traditional tote.

Stay in the easy chair and reach for the laptop

There is simply no better way to shop.

Arnie Reisman and Nat Segaloff’s “The Waldorf Conference,” this weekend on L.A. Theater Works

This weekend L.A. Theater Works continues California Month with a dark chapter in Hollywood history. On November 24, 1947, the most powerful men in American film met in New York’s plush Waldorf-Astoria Hotel to decide how to address the Communist witch hunt being carried out by the House Un-American Activities Committee. Twenty-four hours later they emerged having created the Hollywood Blacklist. The Waldorf Conference by Nat Segaloff, Daniel M. Kimmel and Arnie Reisman dramatically speculates on what went on in that room.

Visit L.A. Theater Works to find out when your local station is airing this radio event – or listen now below.
