Summary, etc.:
During radio's golden age, vocalists and musical groups were often the stars of their own daily or weekly radio shows. Teamed with full studio orchestras and harmonizing vocal groups, these tuneful and relaxing programs were often the way for an unknown band singer to become a superstar in their own right. In this fully restored collection, transferred from original recordings, you will enjoy nineteen programs from the 1940s and 1950s featuring many of the top musical talents of the era, including a rare series of live shows recorded exclusively for armed forces during World War II and never heard by civilian audiences.
