Hollywood Is On The Air



ABOUT THE DISC & RECORDINGS:

This is exactly what the LP states: "Radio programs of the 1930's and 1940's promoting films of the era."

In the case of M-G-M, many of their radio promotion records sent to the various stations included the first ever releases of their pre-recordings.
