BRINGS BACK MEMORIES OF MY YEARS IN BROADCASTING
6 October 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If I did not know I was watching a recreation of Lux Radio Theater's 1949 presentation of It's A Wonderful Life, I would swear I was in a radio studio watching the real thing. With Earlhorn making it sound real with his Sound Effects, and the full orchestra to set the mood with music it was just as I remembered during that Golden Age Of Radio. I hope PBS will repeat this broadcast this Christmas for those who missed it, and those who may be discovering Old Time Radio for the very first time.
