The Perry Como Shows 1943 - On the Air Series
 
The Perry Como Shows ~ 1943
& The Raymond Scott Orchestra
Volumes 1, 2 & 3 "On the Air" Series
 
These three discs replicate Perry's 1943 radio broadcasts the the way they must have sounded, with opening and closing themes, song introductions and a smattering of orchestral interludes by The Raymond Scott Orchestra. The material appears to be well researched, nicely sequenced, and honestly portrayed for what it is throughout the packaging. Listen to these recordings within the context of their time and you'll be certain to have a better understanding and appreciation of Perry's roots within early broadcast radio.
