This painting was from the same time as.... When Howard Hughes, Betty Grable, Marilyn Monroe all were in the news... Or what about The Kinsey Sexual Report and the Commie Scare, the Hollywood Black listing by Senator Joseph McCarthy and his new side kick, the up and coming Richard Nixon? (See photos, not included)
Yes, this was the days that Radio still brought to the news and when radio, AM Radio was King of the media and airways! You can almost hear Glenn Miller's Big Band playing "In The Mood" on the Fada rado at the Airport lounge, or maybe the new song from the coed heart throb Frank Sinatra! When at home you had a beautiful Zenith, Crosley or Philco Console to listen to, and at the office a colorful tabletop Fada, Emerson or Addison Catalin plastic and bakelite art deco radio.
Yes, back then you trusted the news when is was brought to you with a live feed by Edward R Murrow, Walter Cronkite, or, as in the case of this illustration, Breaking News from your local DJ!
A time of more facts, and less opinion, that was the news... "And that the ways is was..."
