Take a dip into the true golden age of radio with 'Radio Days', from the war years through to the coming of television. The focus here is on three shows that became part of the very fabric of life during those sometimes difficult post-war years; Workers' Playtime, Housewives' Choice and Family Favourites. This collection is a tribute to the makers, personalities and voices who made these milestone programmes possible and features Mario Lanza, Frank Sinatra, Tommy Dorsey and his Orchestra, Bing Crosby, Judy Garland, Eric Coates and his Symphony Orchestra and others.
