This is War - February 28, 1942

February 15th, 2019

Now, the third program in our brief run of “This is War”, a program written by Norman Corwin and carried on all four networks as an early contribution to the War effort a few months after Pearl Harbor.

Program 3 in the series was heard February 28, 1942 and is titled “Your Navy”, dealing with the Navy and Merchant Marine.  Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. and Frederick March are featured in the program.  The music was composed by Kurt Weill.

Our show was transferred from an original 16” vinyl Orthacoustic transcription pressed by RCA-NBC, matrix numbers MS 08691 and MS 08692.
