Today Only! Learn About Illustrated Songs and Their Audiences

As we mentioned the other day in our Herbert Rice post, this weekend the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum is hosting a couple of programs related to the use of illustrated songs, presented by Sean Sharp and Russell Merritt of The Great Nickelodeon Show, and silent film accompanist Frederick Hodges. Everybody Join in the Song: A History of the Illustrated Song is available throughout the day for viewing (the link comes down tomorrow). How Movies Coped When the Wrong People Went to See Them, or Who Sang Along With Those Illustrated Songs? will be be presented on Zoom live tonight at 8pm Eastern (5pm Pacific). Access them both here.
