5 of 5 The great musicals from yesteryear...... January 31, 2018
Reviewer: Richard McLeod from RIVERSIDE, CA United States  
With Gordon MacRae, Lucille Norman and a host of the great female singers from the period and the Orchestra conducted by the great Carman Dragon, The Railroad Hour could only succeed in providing one of the best musical shows during the Golden Age of Radio.
The audio and tonal quality of each show as restored by the Radio Archives staff from the original transcription discs are truly as enjoyable a listening experience as would have been the case when the shows were initially aired on radio in the 1940's if not better.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

5 of 5 Wonderful shows, great sound October 25, 2010
Reviewer: Ray Kolle from Randwick, NSW Australia  
I'm thrilled to have these wonderful shows in such crisp, excellent sound. In my opinion, MacRae is a much finer singer than he seems to be given credit for, and, of course, his female leads were usually Metropolitan or San Francisco Opera sopranos (and the very special Lucille Norman, who seemed to be able to sing beautifully in any genre).  So all round, the singing is terrific as is the orchestra, conducted by Carmen Dragon.  I'm eagerly looking forward to follow-up volumes.

5 of 5 GREAT COLLECTION! February 20, 2010
Reviewer: Paul Wolske from Green Valley, AZ United States  
The last sentence of your description of this set says it all.  I also like the inclusion of some of the summer shows, where a particular year is covered, or the history of a song writing team. Great music, excellent sound.  I'm praying for more volumes to follow soon.

4 of 5 Better now than then February 20, 2010
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Lubbock, TX United States  
As a kid, I would listen to The RR Hr occasionally, but in general I wasn't fond of musicals, whether at the movies or on the radio, particularly operettas. But listening to the programs now, particularly the ones based on Broadway shows, is a pleasant experience, and I like the ones that offer reviews of the music of a particular year. It  reminds me of the That Wonderful Year segment on the old Garry Moore Show on TV. And of course, the sound is excellent. As a family way out in the sticks, we rarely got a radio signal from anywhere without lightning static and other interference.
