Romance


(5 stars; 1 reviews)

Theater of Romance/Romance (CBS) ran for about 12 years between 1943 and 1957 as a 30 minute filler for a number of old time radio shows. The content, directors, performers and producers changed often during the run of the series, but maintained its theme pretty much. When the show picked up sponsor Colgate Tooth Powder in the years 1944-1946, a lot of big names of the time entered the picture like Henry Fonda, Errol Flynn, Humphrey Bogart, Shirley Temple, Orson Welles, Gregory Peck and James Stewart among others. Theater of Romance kind of became a half hour version of the Lux Radio Theater for the Colgate Company with stories binding with the movies and historical fiction. The show now became very popular. Frank Graham hosted the show for most of its years. In the later years the show was basically just called "Romance" with top Old Time Radio performers starring. Available is quite a few of the series from 1943 up to 1957 in various quality.


This recording is part of the Old Time Radio collection.

A Radio Gem

(5 stars)

Well chosen dramas, musical and more -- expertly performed by the best. I especially fell in love with Robert Alda (yes, Alan's dad) singing tunes from 42nd Street. Listen and enjoy...
