Retrospective (1956-1957)

Sophie TuckerVic and Sade advertisement in Radio MirrorOn its thirtieth anniversary in the 1950s, the National Broadcasting Company created this special program to celebrate many "old time" radio broadcasts from the 1930s. Looking back to the early days of radio, this program "relives the radio events of the past," highlighting the stars, songs, and great moments in sports and special events from the 1930s. With a great variety of wonderful performances, this show includes such great stars as Sophie Tucker, Al Jolson, Red Skelton, Rudy Vallee, Lynn Fontanne and Alfred Lunt, Connie Boswell, Fats Waller, as well as Dinah Shore and Judy Garland's debuts. It also includes programs from Vic and Sade, Bergen and McCarthy, Lights Out, and more.

Listeners were encouraged to write in and request old time radio shows. Some requested old children's programs, others requested such things the earliest broadcast they could scrape up in their sound library - which turned out to be the daily broadcast from June 11, 1927. This show not only plays the old shows, but also contextualizes them in a way that makes them even more delightful. So pull up a chair, set that tired leg on an ottoman and put your ear to the horn, because this is one show you won't want to miss! See also: Behind the Mike.
