Network Radio Has a Bit of Life

(5 Sterne)

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 Radcliffe Hall, as best as I can tell. Vic Roby gives the network cue at the end. The Mary Martin tribute is introed and extroed by Mel Brandt, the Salute To Radio is opened and closed by Fred Collins (who also extros the Kenton show) and the announcer on the Show Biz episode is unquestionably Don Pardo (Roby reminds listeners about Dr. Six Gun before the chimes). This occasional programme originally aired on Sunday evenings, but when Monitor was about to come into being, was moved to Tuesdays.
