This upload contains 293 episodes of the Old Time Radio variety program, Command Performance, a show created in 1942 to entertain members of the Armed Forces during WWII. The program was only broadcast over the Armed Forces Radio Network and not domestically. The show illustrates how Hollywood got behind the war effort, donating their time and talents to entertain the troops. Command Performance continued until 1949 or 1950 when budget cuts resulted in its cancellation.
The dates, episode numbers and titles are believed to be correct based on available information, but any corrections are welcome.
Disclaimer: By uploading these files, I make no claim to ownership or copyright. These recordings have been acquired from publicly available sources on the Internet, and my goal has been to put together a collection of every available episode where possible. I will add to these collections if I discover new episodes or if any new episodes become available. Additionally, while I tried to put together a collection that contains the best version of each episode that I could, there may be better copies of some recordings available from collectors and dealers, and I encourage you to reach out to them if you are so inclined. We OTR enthusiasts owe a huge debt to those who have worked tirelessly to discover, acquire and preserve these recordings. My role here has been to organize the files I have, verify the dates, episode numbers and titles as best I could from available sources, and correct and rename the files accordingly. My goal is to ensure these excellent artistic expressions of our past are preserved for this and all future generations, and I hope that by uploading all of my files here in a uniform and organized system, they will be easily accessible for all.
