AllMusic Review by

Radio once had a prominence in homes that made it the very template for television when that medium overtook and largely superseded radio. This three-disc set, the second of a three-volume chronological series, provides a varied documentary-style survey of radio between 1941 and 1943, presenting shows like an episode of The Eddie Cantor Show, songs and musical interludes by the Andrews Sisters, Tommy Dorsey, and others, and memorable speeches like President Roosevelt's Declaration of War Against Japan, as well as other odds and ends that re-create the bygone Golden Age of Radio.
