A classic radio broadcast from the World War II era, NBC War Bond Parade
rallied Americans with a wide variety of entertainment and inspirational messages. Ranging from New York to Washington, D.C., Chicago and Hollywood, this episode features everything from Raymond Massey reciting John of Gaunt's soliloquy from Shakespeare's Richard II
to a comedic sketch starring Red Skelton; it also included an operatic performance from Faust
and big-band music from Kay Kyser. Originally broadcast on February 7, 1944.
