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

Interesting curio from the early thirties. I got a kick out of seeing the young Guy Lombardo, Rose Marie (really young! :-) and Jay C. Flippen in this plot-less, but fun, short.
Flippen was surprising to see in this type of setting since I'm more used to seeing him in his more tougher persona from countless TV and movie roles. He also sports a hairstyle reminiscent of Cab Calloway from the latter's heyday! His Vaudeville chops are evident here, too.
Lombardo gets to show off his championship yachting skills (with his brothers) in one segment.
Is it great art? No, but it is important historically, while still being able to entertain seventy-plus years later.
By the way, this was one of the first productions for the famous Warner Brothers producer Jerry Wald.
