The 1940s Radio Hour takes the audience on a nostalgic trip down memory lane into a backdrop of the second World War, setting the stage for swinging big band music and song and old fashioned situation comedy of a bygone period. The show takes place during a live broadcast of WOV., a local 5,000 watt New York City radio station. It centered around 14 performers and their attempts to make it to the big time, as seen through the eyes of a 1940’s radio station studio audience. This nostalgic trip down memory lane included such songs as “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”, “Ain’t She Sweet”, and “Blue Moon.”
