    Cape Symphony: CapePOPS Radio Days


    Pardon me boys, is that the Chattanooga Choo-Choo? Let’s take a Sentimental Journey back to the days when bands were big and swing was king. The forties! When Pepsi hit the spot (“twelve full ounces, that’s a lot!”), and the hottest entertainment came from a thing no bigger than a bread box. The radio. Yep, that little Philco got us hooked on serials, cereals and the latest hits of the day. And you’ll hear the best of the best in this fun (and funny) radio rewind complete with commercials, sound effects and hometown heroes like Rosie the Riveter and the Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B. For a country at war, the music was pure harmony – five-part, to be exact. Our fabulous guest stars and your very own orchestra know how to Ac-cent-tchu-ate the Positive on all your forties favorites – from Moonlight Serenade to Moonlight in Vermont. So, I’ll Be Seeing You – and that gal from Kalamazoo. After all, It’s Been a Long, Long Time.
