Chris Noel - 1967

Kinda hard to do a show when the only thing you really know is what day it is.  The ETs could be aired at noon or midnight.  Could be a hurricane or a drought.  These guys did great.  It's a Monday in 1967 and Chris Noel is the Voice of Home...

We Who Fight - 1943

Billboard Magazine - 1943

We Who Fight, a half hour in the We, the People style only for and with servicemen.  This one uses men from all the services of all the nations and aims to keep the men in the Pacific posted on what their allies and comrades are doing on other fronts produced before an audience drawn from people with men in overseas service, uses an army band and a name emcee, who will soon be replaced by a man in uniform.  At the moment there are plans to air We Who Fight for domestic consumption.

This was just recently located
