A '40s Radio Christmas: Saturday, Dec 25 at 2 pm CT

Christmas programs on the radio in the 1940's ranged from variety shows, to dramas, to comedies... all of them, containing a generous portion of music, from swing, to sentimental, to religious. The decade of the 40's represents three distinct periods... continued recovery from the depression, America's entry into World War Two, and the beginning of the cold war. This was the last decade before the advent of television, and many radio performers of the 40's became household names to early television viewers. Produced by Wes Sims.
