AllMusic Review by

The third installment of Intersound's Great Entertainers series features excerpts of various radio broadcasts from the '30s and '40s. This well-rounded set provides equal billing to both swing bands and pop vocals, including Bing Crosby, Billie Holiday, Al Jolson, Jelly Roll Morton, Nelson Eddy, Fats Waller, Dinah Shore, Ella Fitzgerald and the Chick Webb Orchestra, Ethel Merman, and the Boswell Sisters. The sound quality isn't great considering the source and era, but it's definitely listenable.
