Radio historian and archivist Davis S. Siegel shares 14 of his interviews with people intimately involved in radio during its years as a prime source of entertainment. In addition to the inimitable singer Hildegarde, Parker Fennelly (Titus Moody on the Fred Allen program), and Frank Nelson (nemesis of Jack Benny in countless personas), he speaks with musicians, writers, technicians, producers and directors. All share their first-hand accounts of the programs they were associated with and the stars and behind-the-scenes people with whom they worked during radio’s Golden Age.
