An entertainment legend, Al Jolson was and remains a towering figure of musical theater. Jolson took over the venerable Kraft Music Hall in 1947 - a series he had headlined briefly in the early 1930s. This classic program was a masterpiece of careful planning and careful understanding of how to package a performer like Jolson to his best advantage.

This collection features 30 Kraft Music Hall programs, all newly restored to the highest audio quality using equipment that was not available when the first collection was produced. In addition, this volume features other classic Jolson radio appearances, including three Lux Radio Theatre episodes.

Jolson on the Radio is the most comprehensive, best sounding collection of this fantastic performer's classic radio appearances, showing clearly why Al Jolson deserves every single accolade given him.
