1940s Radio – The Radio Time Machine for the 1940s
Welcome to 1940s Radio. We play a fantastic collection of 1940s music and old time radio shows from the golden age of radio intermingled with clips, news items, advertisements and other interesting soundbites from the decade.
When television was still an unrealized dream, the king of imagination was a piece of furniture about the size of a picnic basket. Every day shortly after sunset, families would pull their chairs up to this little box and spend a delightful evening as the magic of fiction was made to come alive. Imagination theater for the mind.
During the Golden Age of Radio, radio programs featured adventure, comedy, drama, horror, mystery, musical variety, romance, thrillers—along with classical music concerts, big band remotes, farm reports, news and commentary, panel discussions, quiz shows, sports broadcasts, talent shows and weather forecasts.
