Cox explores a wide range of musical programming on American radio from the early 1920s through the early 1960s. Some of the popular series discussed include The Bell Telephone Hour, The Bing Crosby Show, and Grand Ole Opry. There are also individual chapters devoted to such topics as disc jockeys, house bands, and music-based radio contests. The volume is illustrated with b&w historical photographs. Retired college professor Jim Cox is the author of a number of books on the "golden age" of radio broadcasting.
