    Musical Variety Program (1935-1953)

    Jello Meredith WillsonMeredith Willson was a popular conductor, composer, and radio personality. Although Meredith was on the air for almost two decades, these shows are mainly from 1940 and 1942, when he broadcast as a summer replacement for Fibber McGee and Molly. It features many popular tunes from the day.

    In addition to his own show, Meredith and his work were featured on Good News, Maxwell House Coffee Time, Burns and Allen, and The Big Show. His style was known as "chiffon swing and one of his popularly heard commercials was one for Jello. As a creative touch, his idea was to have five singers imitate the texture of Jello through their voices on the commercial, "shimmering in unison. You needn't get out your chiffon to enjoy this program, however. Meredith Willson ensures you a toe tapping and ballroom swinging good time, whether you're in tails or corduroy.

    I wanted to tell you how very pleased I have been with your outstanding selection and the high caliber of your service. My most recent order arrived far more quickly than expected, and although it is not a Christmas gift (other than to myself) I am delighted that it has arrived in time for me to relish in the Holidays stories of yesteryear. Although I am too young (55) to have grown up with radio programming (TV was my entertainment of choice) I discovered OTR when my mother gave me a couple of cassette tapes of The Green Hornet and The Shadow. I found them interesting but did not truly get hooked until a fellow teenage friend told me about the CBS Radio Mystery Theater hosted by EG Marshall. Fast forward 20 years and I am listening to old time radio on Wisconsin Public Radio when I heard what has become my all-time single favorite “serial”, Adventures by Morse City of the Dead. As I was destined to miss a couple of those episodes as the aired over several weeks I went online looking for it, hoping it was something that I could buy somewhere, somehow. That is when I discovered OTRCAT and the wonderful world of radio drama. I now have a large collection and several favorites (Jack Benny, Gunsmoke, Great Gildersleeve, Fibber McGee and Molly), and have slowly increased my collection over time. Thank you for maintaining such a wonderful medium and sharing it with generations most of which are utterly unaware of this marvelous and extensive compilation of audio-only enjoyment.
