8-31-11: Wanamaker’s: Meet Me at the Eagle

August 31, 2011 at 7:55 am Leave a comment

This conversation originally aired December 1, 2010.

Baltimore Symphony Orchestra oboist Michael Lisicky moonlights as an expert on department store history. Last year, he triggered all kinds of nostalgia with the publication of Hutzler’s: Where Baltimore Shops on History Press. Today he tells Tom Hall about his new book, Wanamakers: Meet Me at the Eagle, which looks at the innovations that the landmark Philadelphia chain made in retail and advertising.

You can read an interview with Lisicky at philly.com.

Definitely don’t miss this video of a “random act of culture”: the Opera Company of Philadelphia Chorus (and six-hundred or so of their best choral friends) performing Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus on the Wanamaker Organ at Macy’s Center City Philadelphia.
