Old Time Radio: Old Time Radio Comes to PurpleStar

We are pleased to announce that OTRGold has become a part of the PurpleStar family of websites.  Old Time Radio may be thought of as the original audio theater.  Before we became addicted to television, we would gather in the living room in the evening around a big wooden box and be entertained and informed by whatever popular radio program was on the schedule for that night, using the power of our minds to imagine what the action looked like.

General: Ready For The Big Launch

Posted by David on 2015-07-26 08:16:24 PDT

It has taken a while to get everything into place, but PurpleStar Arts and Entertainment is ready to be presented to the world.  I hope that visitors to the site will not only enjoy the works presented here, but will also join the community and help develop it.  In this regard, the Forum will be up and live in a couple of days.  I see the forum as a place to not only get artists and fans together, but also as a place where artists may share news about their projects, or inform about upcoming events.  As PurpleStar is a work in progress, stop by often.  Each time you visit, there is likely to be a lot of content you haven't seen before.
