The Homefront is an audio program prepared for radio broadcast. It is a composite of songs, music, newscasts and commentary that presents a view of the years 1938-1945. It even includes pauses for commercials, “We’ll be right back. . . ” Three veteran broadcast journalists share the narration. The recordings of famous people’s voices, from Princess Elizabeth speaking to the children evacuated from the London Blitz to Humphrey Bogart delivering lines from Casablanca, are the highlights of the series. The script of historical events is blended with original soundtracks of movies, Broadway shows and news broadcasts. For entertainment and nostalgia this gets high marks. It’s appreciated for its appeal to general audiences. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR 94]
