IS EVERYBODY LISTENING
The year is 1947. America is returning to postwar life. This March Of Time production delves into the facets of the heyday of radio. If you listen closely, you'll notice that things haven't changed much. Most of the same criticism can be applied to today's television.
Show includes a message by Lee DeForest, the father of radio.
This may sound strange to be included on a program on old radio, but it shows how radio is used to sell a product.
