About The WallBreakers

Project — Breaking Walls: The History of American Network Radio Broadcasting

I launched Breaking Walls in 2014 as an interview show with a simple concept: sit-down conversations with luminaries, centered around helpful topics, all laddering up to a monthly theme.

The show next expanded to include on-the-scene reporting at places like The American Museum of Natural History, The Maggie Flanigan Acting Studio, and Industry City.

Eventually I began to produce mini-documentaries about people, programs, and moments during the Golden Age of Radio. For a time, I was producing all of these kinds of shows concurrently, but the listening audience kept asking for more audio documentaries on the history of radio. I decided to move Breaking Walls solely in this direction.

Today Breaking Walls is a once-per-month audio documentary on the history of American Network Radio Broadcasting, focusing on people, places, and events from the Golden Age of Radio.



Personal Backstory
In 1999 I discovered the Golden Age of Radio with my grandfather. He opened a box set of sixty old-time radio shows selected by Walter Cronkite. He popped a cassette tape of a science fiction show that ran on NBC in the 1950s called X-Minus One. I was instantly hooked! I’ve been listening to and collecting shows, as well as reading about that early era of broadcasting since.
