Description
Entertainment Tonight's viewers will share their favorite film critic's nostalgic enthusiasm in The Great American Broadcast for the magic medium displaced by television. Leonard Maltin lovingly evokes the golden age of radio, its personalities and its lore, from the early 1920s'when the first small-town stations went on the air with livestock prices, local bands, and hayseed humor'through its heyday of soaps, dramas, and comedy shows, to its waning in the 1950s.From Orson Welles and the Mercury Theatre to Amos ?n Andy, Burns and Allen, the Lone Ranger, and Superman, from the nuances of acting to the creative genius of sound effects men (and women), here is a virtual oral history crammed with fascinating detail and exclusive first-person anecdotes from radio actors, writers, directors, announcers, and technicians. Illustrated with rare photographs, this is a perfect gift for all radio, Americana, and nostalgia buffs.
