Frank Bresee Collection

Frank Bresee is a veteran radio actor and radio historian. He was the host of the Golden Days of Radio program on Armed Forces Radio and Television Service from 1967 to 1995. Golden Days of Radio reflected on the radio programs and personalities from the early days of radio up to the 1950's. This collection contains approximately 5,000 open-reel tapes, Bresee's program (as it was broadcast), source material, and complete episodes of many radio series from the 1940's and 1950's. (Photo right: Frank Bresee speaks to his audience during a tribute held in his honor at the Thousand Oaks Library in March, 1999.)
