Blast from the Past

I remembered how my aunt’s house helper would suddenly cry while she’s doing her laundry. When asked, she would say she just got carried away from the old time radio program she listened to. Now I wonder if there are still people who would go for this kind of diversion. Old time radio program became popular during the old times when radio was invented. Special effects such as stampeding horses, thunderstorm, knock on the door and others were manually done by the people behind an old radio program. What the listener hears and how she imagine the scenes is how people became entertained during the old times. In this kind of medium, actors and actresses became more versatile when it comes to acting. Their actions and facial expressions were not important, as long as they can make their listeners relate to what they were trying to do in verbal forms.
