OLD TIME RADIO - 1
CD-ROM - 19 mp3
Created by the U.S. Treasury Department to stimulate sales of
war bonds and stamps, Treasury Star Parade was produced in New York and
Hollywood and syndicated to radio stations across the U.S. The U.S. Treasury
Department sponsored the radio series in 1942 and 1943. The program recruited
major writers for radio such as Arch Oboler, Neal Hopkins, Violet Atkins, and
others to write “patriotic” scripts based on the scenario “if Hitler won the
war, America will have to expect…”
The radio series featured major American actors from Broadway and Hollywood such
as Edward G. Robinson, Bette Davis, Lynn Fontanne, Lionel Barrymore, Henry Hull,
John Garfield, Fredric March, Alfred Lunt, Vincent Price, and Orson Welles.
Eleanor Roosevelt even appeared on the radio show. Actress Jane Froman was a
frequent contributor to the show. These actors and many others donated their
time in producing 15-minute performances to support the war effort. Musicians
such as Bing Crosby, Kay Kyser, Bob Crosby, Harry James, Rudy Vallee, Xavier
Cugat, Fred Waring, and Ted Lewis, were also on the show.
Treasury Star Parade was broadcast three times a week. The radio program was
syndicated to more than 800 radio stations in the U.S. The 15 minute episodes
sought to “personalize” the war, to bring it home and into the living rooms of
average Americans, by producing melodramatic and highly emotionally-charged
dramatizations of the war. The objective was to shock and galvanize average
Americans and to draw listeners out of their secure shells and comfort zones.
The scripts were meant to make Americans experience and feel viscerally the
trauma, anxiety, fear, and psychological terror of war. Average American
citizens were to experience the war via the radio to simulate what U.S. troops
underwent in combat. The U.S. Treasury Department also sponsored the Treasury
Salute radio program to stimulate the sale of war bonds and stamps, to buy “more
than before”. Treasury Salute featured biographies of members of the U.S.
military forces and dramatized real events. In the 1950s, the radio program
became known as Guest Star.
