1940 Radio Holly-Days (December 18th)

Off we go for "dining" at the Westin Lobby Bar so we can visit our bartenders and deliver Christmas presents!  We then walk to the Symphony Hall which s around the corner.  No big meal tonight... Paul's tummy is already exploding!

Radio Holly-Days
A time long ago when imagination counted!

Radio Holly-Days

A 1940ís holiday radio broadcast comes alive ó featuring the childrenís programming, commercial jingles and Christmas songs that were etched in the nationís psyche. Backed by the lush sound of Pacific Symphony, the silky voices of Five by Design capture the sound and feel of a bygone era.

It was a great evening and the performance, wow!  The symphony hall was amazing reverberating form the sounds of a fifty piece symphony and the voices of Christmas.

Listen to some real shows of this era.

No pictures during the performance but perhaps a few memories can be gleaned from the following attempts:

Pictures... Of Course!
