The Lux Radio Theatre was one of radio's most popular series, attracting Hollywood's top stars and boasting a lavish budget. It began in 1934 by featuring dramas from Broadway, but there was not enough material to support the show. In an attempt to reverse the slipping ratings, the show was moved to Hollywood in 1936, where there was plenty of material and talent. In fact, filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille often served as the host.

Yes - it was so enjoyable and wonderful to hear Judy Garland singing. It was a delightful presentation with full sound effects.
Esther and Tootie as they played their characters so well. Especially Tootie as the younger sister and the antics she got up to.
When Esther was comforting Tootie when they thought they were moving to New York. They were so believable.
I even enjoyed the ads as they were something new to me even though we have Lux Flakes in Aust I was unaware there had been a shortage during this period. The information about the returning Service Personnel from WW2 was also interesting. I love these little snippets of information. I am now looking forward to listening to more of these productions.
