Children's programming (late 1940s-1950s)

Minnesota School of the Air was part of the trend in the 1940s and 1950s of using the radio airwaves to educate.  This show was in the same genre as NBC University of the Air, Indiana School of the Air, and many other states with the same idea.  The radio show was broadcast by KUOM also known as University of Minnesota Public Radio.

Children listening to the RadioAccording to the book "The University of Minnesota, 1945-2000" by Stanford E. Lehmberg and Ann M. Pflaum, about 40% of broadcast time was devoted to educational programs for kindergarten through grade 12.  Topics for the shows varied from music to speech as well as fairy tales. These charming 15 minutes episodes were broadcast twice a week by 'tape transcription' for in-school listening.
