Ed Wynn hosted a popular radio show for most of the 1930s, heard in North America on Tuesday nights, sponsored by Texaco gasoline. He was often seen wearing a fireman's helmet, as the "Texaco Fire Chief". During this time, Wynn was offered the part of The Wizard in MGM's adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, but he turned down the role. The part later went to Frank Morgan. Wynn founded his own short-lived radio network, the Amalgamated Broadcasting System, which lasted only five weeks in...

In 1942, CBS produced a series of six 15-minute programs that were broadcast from Army camps around the country. Each episode of What Are We Fighting For? contains a remarkable speech; my favorite is Alvin C. York's: 01 The Road To War - Edward R. Murrow at West Point, New York 02 What Pearl Harbor Means To Me - Lee White at Ft. George Meade, Maryland 03 Your Enemies, The Fascists - William L.

Curtain Time Curtain Time had two separate runs on radio. The fist run was sponsored by General Mills from 1937 to 1939 and the second aired from 1945 to 1950, sponsored by the Mars Candy Co. Interesting is that this romantic drama had a theater setting and announcements with the announcer shouting "tickets please". Many of the episodes were romantic stories where a boy meets his dream girl and what happens afterwards. Announcer for the series was Harry Halcomb who was later known...

Filled with catchy jingles, great products, many of which we still used today, and outrageous claims abound! Most of these where sponsors on the old time radio shows.
