ABOUT THIS OLD TIME RADIO SHOW:

Bing CrosbyDuring World War II , every patriotic American wanted to do his or her part to help the war effort. Not everyone was able to join the armed forces so what could you do to help? One way to help was to buy the war bonds that financed military operations.

As one of several radio shows sponsored by the Treasury Department, Music for Millions was a 15 minute show used to support the war effort by reminding people to buy Victory Bonds. Buy War BondsWith the help of musical legends like Irving Berlin, Frank SinatraRoy Rogers, and Bing Crosby the Treasury Department helped remind Americans that buying bonds was one way to support their husbands, sons and daughters fighting the war.

These singers and songwriters wrote and sang songs about purchasing bonds. During the show one of the singers sang two or three of their most recognizable  songs, urged people to bonds then sang a song about buying bonds. It was a brilliant way to use the pop culture of the time to get the message across to all ages.
