Revision as of 10:28, 9 December 2021

The Armchair Reference Radio (Half) Hour!, is a bi-monthly, short-form virtual program that allows the Researcher Services team to share information about resources and new projects, while also engaging with viewers in a light-hearted but meaningful way.

Each program in the series is conceived as an episode of a vintage radio show—including a live studio audience—broken down into segments that incorporate radio formats including interviews and conversations, short stories, and news. Episodes revolve around the Folger’s strengths and researcher needs—format-based research themes like printed books and manuscripts or genre research of poetry and drama.

Invitations are issued to registered Folger readers. If you are not already a reader, you are welcome to sign up at our online portal.
