George Burns and Gracie Allen: “Taxes.”
The year is 1937 – or maybe it’s 1946…no matter – the Golden Age of Radio is in full swing.
What was it like back then? You might have heard on your radio that the Golden Gate Bridge had just opened, or that an amazing flight record had been set – Los Angeles to New York in an astounding 7 hours and 28 minutes! You probably also heard that the Hindenburg exploded while attempting to dock, and the immortal words of reporter Herb Morrison, “Oh! The humanity! The humanity!!” echoed in theatre newsreels and were heard on radio broadcasts all over the world.
You see, the American home of its day had only 2 links to the outside world – a telephone and a radio. Commercial broadcast radio grew to be an important and irreplaceable part of the very fabric of daily American life, providing news and entertainment to a country struggling with economic depression and war.
And so, every evening millions of Americans would gather around the family radio and listen in to their favorite programs. Flash Gordon, Amos ‘n’ Andy, Buck Rogers, The Lux Radio Hour and, of course, War of the Worlds entertained, informed and, at times, terrified a nation. Big Bands like those of Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey and Artie Shaw could be heard playing popular music for listeners all over the country. Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite broadcast the news, while commentators such as Walter Winchell analyzed events at home. And Franklin Delano Roosevelt used radio to speak directly to the American people in his legendary “fireside chats.”
So YOU ARE INVITED to sit back, close your eyes if you’d like, and return with us to the golden days when radio ruled…
