This upload contains 5 episodes of the Old Time Radio show, Hollywood Byline. The show, which appears to have aired from 1949-1950, featured interviews of Hollywood stars by a panel of news reporters. The beginning of the program focused on questions from the panel, and the show closed with the guest star getting to ask questions of the panelists. All five episodes attached here are unedited recordings and not the actual broadcast versions, so they contain comments from the director, repeat questions, and discussions about how to proceed in the interview. It is unfortunate that additional episodes of this show do not appear to have survived, since they do provide candid and frank discussions with the stars, including questions of a personal nature.
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.
