Description
Jack Oakie, John Payne, and Cesar Romero portray early pioneers in radio, while the effervescent Alice Faye is its first singing star in this frothy comedy from 1941, which Variety called "light and breezy, a showmanly admixture of comedy, romance, drama and music." The song-laden Harry Warren score features "I Take to You" and the haunting "Where You Are," with Faye accompanied by the Ink Spots. Other highlights include the astounding dancing of the Nicholas Brothers and the quick wit of the Wiere Brothers. Extras include a documentary on the early days of radio and the original trailer.

"This latest Twentieth Century-Fox songfest is easily the best musical to come this way since that same studio's Alexander's Ragtime Band.... A streamlined job of song-plugging, comedy and specialty turns, The Great American Broadcast races from one number to the next like a limited making up time. And that is how musicals should be made.... Chock-full of delightful entertainment.... Oakie, a past master at scene stealing, has a bag of tricks and he knows best how to use them."NYTimes
