J.C Flippen acts as MC on a broadcast from a short vacation cruise of many New York based radio personalities of 1932. Among them are Tess Gardella, Johny Marvin, Bill Hall, Baby Rosemarie and the Four Lombardo Brothers, who all do their part on the broadcast. Written by

Jay C. Flippen way before he became a respected character actor served as emcee for this Vitagraph short featuring several radio personalities of the day, including the brothers Lombardo and Baby Rose Marie.
The setting was a pool party where all these people were on an alleged vacation. It was interesting to see Guy Lombardo and his brothers on a yacht, Guy in his off hours was known as quite the yachtsman. And the voice of who later became Sally Rogers is unmistakable even as a child. Johnny Marvin who was the vocalist for the Guy Lombardo Orchestra got into the act with a number.
Flippen looked quite a bit different, not a speck of gray on his head, unlike how I remember him from later films. Still his voice and jovial manner are also unmistakable.
This was a pleasant look back to some performers not often seen any more.
