Storyline

Jerry Wald has to write about radio, visiting Sid Gary gives him the tip it might be more easy for him to write this article at the radio station than at his newspaper office. At the studio they listen to the Boswell Sister's rehearsal, which is interupted by some not so friendly remarks by orchestra leader Abe Lyman, they listen at the door, where a Colonel Stoopnagel broadcast is prepared, as well as to the rehearsal of a new song for an broadcast by Kate Smith.

Rambling 'Round Radio Row #1 (1932)

** (out of 4)

The first of nine films in the Vitaphone series, which shined the spotlight on various radio acts. Jerry Wald and Sid Gary act as hosts for this 9-minute short where they introduce a wide range of acts from musicals one to those just doing funny things (like quickly drinking down a beverage). If one was to go through this series then more than likely they're going to be major film buffs or perhaps music buffs. Normally if one wants to watch or listen to something from a certain era then they search out the best material from the greatest groups. This short, on the other hands, features unknown acts who were probably on their way out as talking pictures became more famous. The idea of movies borrowing radio acts is an interesting one and we get musical numbers from The Boswell Sisters and Kate Smith. We also get a few comic bits from Stoopnagle and Bud. This short is the first time I've seen or head from any of them and they are minor talents at the most. This is certainly nothing great but it's an interesting curio piece.
