This is a useful book for getting the details of old radio shows. One reviewer apparently has no idea of what old time radio is as they left the comment that it is bad because it was not about music. In the days before TV radio was the dominant form of entertainment. It has left a rich heritage of shows from children's to dramas, westerns comedies, mysteries. This book helps to answer some of the questions about these shows. I as far as I can tell it is an exhaustive reference.
