We Begin Our Trip to the Westside with
the Museum of Television and Radio
The Westside Doubleheader is usually the last two field trips of the semester for Mass Comm 101, and this semester is no exception. The Museum of Television & Radio on Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills was our morning outing.

We drew 55 (plus guests) for this field trip.


The Museum of Television & Radio always has a variety of broadcast retrospectives that the general public can come in and see. These MC101s seem ready for a screening of "Twelve Angry Men."
After an excellent workshop on television advertising, we headed across the street for lunch at Johnny Rockets.

Here is the view of the museum from across the street.

The museum's architect is Richard Meier, who also is architect of the Getty Center.

Johnny Rockets is always an interesting experience. We have a classic American lunch (burgers, fries and Cokes), put nickels into the juke box, and watch the beautiful people of Beverly Hills pass by.
The lunch stop is always a good opportunity to relax and visit with MC101 students.

On to our afternoon field trip at the Getty Center
