Behind the Mike
Radio...looking at radio! That was the concept for Behind the Mike, an immensely entertaining Blue network feature of 1940-42. This show gave listeners an inside look at how their favorite programs were produced, and candid glimpses of the people who made them happen. Radio's dean of announcers, Graham McNamee, served as the good-natured host -- introducing personalities ranging from actors to musicians to writers to directors to technicians, each explaining for the listening audience what their jobs involved and how they went about them. The program also included a regular "fond look back at a program you loved," with tabloid recreations of radio shows from the early days of network broadcasting, offering modern listeners a taste of an era of radio that otherwise doesn't survive in recorded form.
