MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN COLLECTING OLD TIME RADIO SHOWS FOR A LONG TIME NOW. HE LISTENS TO THEM WHILE HE IS WORKING IN THE DARKROOM.
WE THOUGHT WE WOULD SHARE THEM WITH OTHERS SO THEY COULD ENJOY THEM ALSO.
The sole purpose of the Command Performance radio show was to entertain U.S. troops fighting around the world during World War II. The series continued on after the war ended as many troops were stationed overseas for years following the war in order to give our former enemy nations time to establish stable, democratic governments.
Virtually everyone involved with Command Performance donated their time free of charge! The series was broadcast mostly by the Armed Forces Radio Network via shortwave radio overseas and via the radio networks for the troops on our home soil. It was a true "Labor of Love" from the stars and technicians for the boys that were risking their lives for our freedom!
Just to give you an idea of the tremendous talent that donated their time, here's a ridiculously partial list: Fred Allen, George Burns and Gracie Allen, The Andrew Sisters, Eddie Cantor, Bing Crosby, Bette Davis, Olivia De Haviland, Clark Gable, Judy Garland, Betty Grable, Cary Grant, Rita Hayworth, Bob Hope, Spike Jones, Francis Langford, Charles Laughton, Fred MacMurray, Vincent Price, Ginger Rogers, Mickey Rooney, Dinah Shore, Frank Sinatra, Red Skelton, Kate Smith, Shirley Temple, and Spencer Tracy! And the music was provided by people link Benny Goodman's, Harry James', and Glenn Miller's Orchestras!
THERE ARE 103 Episodes ON 1 DVD AND THEY ARE IN MP3 FORMAT. THEY WILL PLAY ON ANY COMPUTER AND SOME CD PLAYERS THAT ARE MARKED PLAYS MP3s. YOU CAN EASILY BURN THEM TO A CD SO YOU CAN PLAY ON YOUR CAR SYSTEM. I HAVE THEM ON MY ZUNE AND ONE OF MY FRIENDS HAS THEM ON HIS I-POD. REMEMBER THEY ARE IN MP3 FORMAT AND WILL NOT PLAY ON MOST CD PLAYERS.
