Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Crawford, both accomplished organists, host a formal audition in their Manhattan art deco apartment for a prospective sponsor for their proposed musical variety radio program. The Crawfords, two singers, and a dance team perform for a mousy little man who has come to the apartment as a representative of "The Universal Gas Company." Written by
This Musical-Comedy from Warner doesn't work too well with either. In the film, a group of musicians are "performing" at the (as you guessed it) home of the Crawford's when a "radio" man stops by. They each show what they can offer in hopes that he will sign them up for their own radio show. There's not too much working in this short so it's clearly just going to be for those who enjoy watching everything Vitaphone was releasing back in the day. There are a couple fair music numbers like "When My Dream Boat Comes True" and "The Very Thought of You" but neither one is going to rank as a classic. There are a couple more numbers but they're rather bland and this includes a dance sequence, which wouldn't have been on the radio anyways. The Crawford's are a husband and wife team who play the organ but neither of them are overly impressive even though this was their fourth film credit. The "laughs" never really work either so this here is certainly a miss all around.
