1940’s Radio Hour is a play full of 1940s music, dancing and old-time sound effects. It portrays the final holiday broadcast of the Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade on the New York radio station WOV in December 1942. Fabled WOV, a seedy little New York radio station doing a special broadcast from Chicago takes to the air at the beginning of World War II, this time to record a broadcast for the troops overseas.
The story concerns the harassed producer whose leading singer is often drunk, the delivery boy who wants a chance in front of the mic, the second banana who dreams of singing a ballad, and the dancer who chooses a fighter plane over Glenn Miller.
