It’s time again for a fabulous evening of live old-time radio re-creations, complete with on-stage sound effects and music, presented by numerous Atlanta artists from The Atlanta Union Radio Players. An annual fall fundraiser for the Food Bank, this year Lend Me An Ear is celebrating its "Sweet 16" birthday by highlighting family favorites dealing with those often awkward and difficult adolescent years. Starting off with the 1948 pilot episode of "Father Knows Best," which spent 5 years on radio before moving to television. Then mark your calendars for "A Date with Judy." Next up, "The Unexpected," with a story aptly titled "Sweet 16" but with a twist! The evening ends with "The Aldrich Family," the archetypical juvenile program that spawned many others. They're all great coming-of-age tales, familiar and sometimes surprising, that will make you laugh heartily while warming the cockles of your heart. (Doors open at 6:15 pm for food and beverage service. Discounted paid parking available across the street at Emory Midtown Hospital.)
