Joint Women's Recruting Army Campaign at 4:30 am and 5:30 pm

During World War II, a number of radio programs, in addition to films were produced to promote the war effort. These are some of the more rarely heard ones. Produced in Canada, Joint Women's Recruiting were a series of shows to encourage women to join the effort instead of staying home. The 5 star minute programs, were similar in nature, only incorporating Stars from Hollywood, talking to the Canadian Radio Audience, in October 1943. Hosted primarily by a Canadian who would be a future Hollywood star himself, Lorne Greene. The material is sourced from the original 16 inch transcription discs, and is likely not heard anywhere else but TCAN.

Old Time Radio Program Hour at 5 am, NOON and 9 pm (Superman, Alan Young Show, Solders Of The Press)

Solders Of the Press is an American Syndicated Series from 1943 to 1945 from the World Broadcasting System. A World War II "infomerical" telling the stories of the brave men of the United Press as they share their experiences with the allied troops. These were dramatizations, and include some well known names, including Walter Cronkite. TCAN currently has access to what is believed to be the only most complete collection of episodes of this series, sourced from the original transcription discs. The quality is amazingly good.

Stuff so bad, it's good, from polka, terrible cover songs to celebrities who should have never even throught of singing.
