The 1940's Radio Hour: A Musical
A live broadcast of The Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade from the Hotel Astor's Algonquin Room on December 21, 1942, captures the spirit of the era when the world was at war and pop music meant Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, as the harassed producer copes with a drunk lead singer, the delivery boy who wants a chance in front of the mike, the second banana who dreams of singing a ballad, and the trumpet-playing sound effects man who chooses a fighter plane over Glenn Miller.--From publisher description.
