1944 Christmas

WWII Christmas War BondsTake a magical sleigh ride into yesteryear with this Christmas collection: 49 assorted holiday-in-wartime radio broadcasts. It's an auditory fruitcake of old time entertainment, studded with a little bit of everything: the madcap hilarity of comedians like Jack Benny and the duo Burns and Allen; carols from favorite crooners like Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby accompanied by pieces from popular orchestras of the day; spiced with a little mystery, drama and horror for complex seasonal flavor.

You'll also hear important historical broadcasts which reflect the unique gravity of the times. Live radio addresses from FDR and Winston Churchill Jack Benny - Rochesterare reminders of the somber threads of war woven through the yuletide tapestry. Hear the poignant Christmas Eve broadcast announcing the tragic disappearance of musician Glenn Miller over the English Channel. These windows into history are a must-not-miss for classic radio fans and World War II buffs alike.

Get over 17 hours of holiday nostalgia with this classic radio collection.
