Command Performance, Volume 1
Share this book    
It’s the greatest radio show you never heard - unless, of course, you were in the Armed Forces during World War II. Recorded exclusively for the enjoyment of servicemen and women and aired worldwide via shortwave, “Command Performance” was a weekly variety series that featured the top names in radio, nightclubs, and motion pictures performing in person in front of live all-military audiences. Had it been a commercial series, it would have cost a fortune - but every member of the star-studded roster of performers donated their time and talents in support of the war effort. In this truly amazing collection, you’ll hear such stars as Jack Benny, Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Judy Garland, George Burns and Gracie Allen, Lena Horne, Al Jolson, Groucho Marx, and a host of others.
