Commercial radio reaches its one-hundredth birthday in 2020, and the Broadcast Legends will celebrate the occasion by turning back the clock to 1955!
In 1955, television marked the 35th anniversary of commercial radio with a special broadcast of Ed Sullivan‘s popular weekly “Toast of the Town” variety show, in which the stone-faced host welcomed early stars of network radio, including Rudy Vallee, Jack Benny, George Burns and many others.
