Week at a Glance at the Library
Sunday, May 20
2 p.m. The Voice that Rocked America Preview Event — The first film about rock and roll radio pioneer Dick Biondi, one of the last of a dying breed of personality disc jockeys known for his unique contribution to radio, his influence on music and his extraordinary gift for connecting with people. This preview of the film will show the powerful connection between Biondi and his teen audience as told by former fan club president and mega fan, Pam Pulice. Pulice is an independent documentary filmmaker and owner of Reel Stories Productions, LLC. Inspired by a special disc jockey who touched her young life, she is largely self-taught and came late to film-making. Pam is a boomer who believes age can’t stop a woman on a mission — and her mission is to bring the Dick Biondi story to the screen for all to enjoy. Meet her and get a special preview of the film coming soon!
