Almost as new-feint surface markings to covers, no spine creasing, clean bright pages. Radio brought live entertainment into American homes; not only dramas and comedies, but also live music programs were beamed across the air waves during the Golden Age of Radio. Because of Radio, listeners could hear live music of every genre without ever leaving their homes. Therefore, it is somewhat surprising that only a relatively few overview books have been written about the music programs of Radio's Golden Age. Old-Time Radio authority and author Jim Cox has helped rectify this oversight with the publication of MUSIC RADIO: The Great Performers and Programs of the 1920s through Early 1960s. In doing so, he has significantly increased our knowledge of broadcast music. MUSIC RADIO covers the entire gamut of radio musical programming starting in the 1920s and continuing through the early 1960s. Classical, operatic, big band, jazz, country, western, gospel, sacred, pop, and semi-classical music forms are explored in the entertaining and informative style that is a trademark of Jim Cox volumes on American Old-Time Radio. 380 pages.
