Reviews

Network Radio Has a Bit of Life


(5 stars)

This fine documentary series produced by the NBC News department took the word "sound" seriously as it attempted to include different voices to keep the pace moving. There was a different host each week. Production values are simple, serious and effective. The Fred Allen tribute was written by Earl Hamner of 'The Waltons' fame (in the repeat broadcast, the network announcer at the start is an unidentified George Barclay. It sounds like Vic Roby giving the network cue at the end). The Mary Martin tribute is introed and extroed by Mel Brandt, while the Salute To Radio is opened and closed by Fred Collins. This occasional programme originally aired on Sunday evenings, but when Monitor was about to come into being, was moved to Tuesdays.
