Hospital Radio redux

If you've been following the story, many troops were first exposed to military "radio" via closed circuit stations in US hospitals. Last week we had probably the most complete telling of that tale we'll ever hear. Thanks Gerry!!
I was looking for this to attach to that story. After the war, the stars toured the VA hospitals. This program would have been heard on the "Bedpan Network".
Here's a 1954 magazine story about The Bedside Radio Network
