Your History & Pop Culture Time Machine
Time Rewind is a fun, fast-paced, one-minute daily broadcast feature that celebrates history and popular culture. Since it premiered on radio stations across the U.S. in 2007, Time Rewind has taken listeners of all ages on a journey back in time to landmark and culturally defining events. With its introduction to the classroom during the 2014-15 academic year, students have come to appreciate the creative way the program brings the past to life. Teachers and administrators marvel at the memories it evokes.
Executive Producer and Host David Mendel has compiled authentic sound bites, music tracks, commercials, themes and jingles that paint a vivid picture of each day in history. Time Rewind is the product of thousands of hours of research, fact-checking and an extensive audio library.
David transports his listeners to simpler times — way before smartphones, tablets, streaming technology and satellite radio — when almost everyone read a newspaper, and LPs, 45s and cassette tapes lined the shelves of most American homes. Those were the days when many took the ballgame and music with them to the beach and park in their transistor radios and boom boxes.
Each day of the year, David treats Time Rewind audiences to content that intrigues, educates and entertains. Do YOU know what happened on this day?
