The 1920s – 1950s were the glory days of radio as it developed into a primary form of mass communication. Radio served as a source of entertainment, news, music, farm reports and featured vaudeville entertainers. This was the golden age when families across America gathered around their radios to laugh at the antics of Jack Benny, Fibber McGee and Molly, The Goldbergs and Allen’s Alley. They listened to FDR’s fireside chats and were scared to death by Orson Wells 1938 War of the Worlds, the original “fake news” thriller. Return with DOROT now to those thrilling days of yesteryear- Hi-Ho Silver, away!!! And don’t be surprised if you find yourself at the mike in your own radio mystery program.
