Hey folks, it’s not too late to attend the very last Friends of Old Time Radio convention in Newark – indeed, some of the most enjoyable panels and live performances are slated for this Friday afternoon and evening, including “Radio Goes to War”, plus an episode of “Gunsmoke” – and much more tomorrow, when the panels and live performances start at 9 AM. One day’s entrance is just $25 at the door – a steal! – read the full schedule here!
From New York City, it’s a snap to get here even without a car – from NYC’s Penn Station, take either a NJTransit Northeast Corridor or a North Jersey Coast train to the Newark Airport Rail station, about $12.50 one-way regular, $8.75 for seniors, kids and disabled. At Newark Airport station, cross over to the AirTrain station (takes just a few minutes). Your NJ Transit ticket includes a $5.50 fare on the AirTrain, running every 2-7 minutes to the P4 station. From P4, head downstairs where the hotel shuttles run, including to the host hotel, Ramada Plaza (whose shuttles run all night) – rooms may still be available, call for more information.
And if you can’ t make it, be sure to tune in to YesterdayUSA’s live coverage, simulcasting all the panels.
