Not everything in the Golden Age of Radio was golden. A few short words of caution:

Racism wasn't just alive and well in the 40's and 50's.  It was institutionalized.  And so you will occasionally hear some things that would never pass the censors today.  If you're lucky enough to have your kids or grandkids listening with you, use those instances as learning opportunities.

Also remember that tobacco companies sponsored many shows.  Some of the shows we broadcast have the original commercials in them.  Again, just shake your head and be thankful for how far we've come.

Thanks for listening.
