In the 1930s, radio was still a new form of entertainment, bringing news, sports, comedy, and drama into millions of depression era homes throughout the country. Despite the economic conditions, American's were still in desperate need of entertainment, and radio was there to give it to them - free, with just a flick of the switch and a turn of the dial. In this remarkable 10 CD set, you'll have the chance to hear a rare sampling of the sort of musical shows that listener's enjoyed the most during that difficult time - everything from the sparkling dance music of the Cocoanut Grove Nightclub to the personality driven music and variety shows that captivated audiences with memorable melodies and hilarious comedy. Chapters: #1 Our Orchestra #2 The Lucky Strike Hour #3 Friendly Five Footnotes #4 The Boswell Sisters #5 The Oldsmobile Program with Ruth Etting and Johnny Green and his Orchestra #6 The Harry Richman Dodge Program #7 The Jello Summer Program with Tim and Irene Ryan
