AllMusic Review by

This LP contains a complete radio broadcast from March 11, 1945, by Benny Goodman's orchestra and odd radio appearances during 1944. The former unfortunately wastes some time with a very unfunny skit and excess chatter, leaving room for only three instrumentals. The flip side finds BG's Quartet being introduced by Al Jolson, performing during a few obscure radio appearances, participating in an odd Jerome Kern medley and the big band playing "Big John's Special" on an audition for a radio show that was never aired. Strictly for Benny Goodman fanatics.
