On The Radio
The National World War II Museum blog posted this item about the importance of radio to the Home Front during WW2. Aside from news, the entertainment for which most Americans turned to their radio also had a patriotic flavor, from live big band performances at military bases, to contemporary patriotic popular music like "Comin' In On A Wing And A Prayer," or "Milkman, Keep Those Bottles Quiet!" The Museum has a collection of sheet music that includes this number featured by Jan Garber and His Orchestra, "Plant A Little Garden (In Your Own Back Yard).
