This rare and exciting collection offers you the chance to travel back in time and experience a complete broadcast day from September 1939, including every minute of the day from 6:00 AM sign-on right through sign-off at 1:00 AM the next morning. Thanks to the foresight of the Library of Congress and station WJSV in Washington D.C., you'll hear exactly what it was like to listen to the radio in 1939 - including the early morning wake-up show, the soap operas, the news and interviews, a live baseball game from Griffith Stadium, and a speech by President Roosevelt, right through to Amos 'n' Andy, Major Bowes and his Original Amateur Hour, a series of live big band remotes, and the national anthem at the end of the day. It's a once in a lifetime trip back to radios golden age.
