AllMusic Review by

The On Radio series presents complete radio programs including themes, comedy skits and advertisements. The presentation is likely very similar to the Blue Sky Boys' live act of the time, and the song selections reflect a mix of popular and traditional tunes, some of which were never otherwise recorded by the duo. The songs are seldom over two minutes in length due to the time constraints of the programs. This volume collects transcriptions made between late 1946 and early 1947, including an abbreviated performance of "Turn Your Radio On." The On Radio series provides a valuable time capsule of rural radio of the early post-war era.
