Description by

MAJOR BOWES' AMATEUR PARADE (1940s): In this episode of the popular radio talent show, "Our Gang" regular Jean Darling sings, two young boys play the accordion and banjo, and impersonator Sid Raymond presents his impressions of Edward G. Robinson and W. C. Fields.

BACK OF THE MIKE (1938): This remarkable short provides a compelling behind-the-scenes look at radio drama production and the creative talent that's involved.

COMMAND PERFORMANCE (1942): Narrated by author and music critic Milton Cross, this documentary takes us on a trip to RCA Victor's Camden, N.J. plant. The process of manufacturing a master disc is demonstrated, from its wax foundation and sound transfer to packaging and distribution.

LATIN RHYTHM (1936): A collection of Latin inspired musical numbers, featuring a singing performance by the legendary Jan Peerce.

GOING NATIVE (1936): Three American buddies have an hour left in Havana until their ship sets sail. One is determined to meet a beautiful Cuban woman before he leaves, so he convinces the others to follow him to a nearby cafe, where they watch several performances while the would-be lover bribes the waiter to help him find a sweetie.
