FDR was in the White House and the new teen idol was Frank Sinatra. The Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and America was in the war. FDR was followed by Harry Truman, who had to make the agonizing decision to drop the bomb and end the war. Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman were kings of the jukebox. A new form of entertainment called television arrived. Oklahoma was on Broadway. Betty Grable and Rita Hayworth were queens of the pinups. Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, Joe Louis, Eddie Arcaro, amd Jackie Robinson headlined the sports pages.
Here are the actual voices, events, and music of an incredible decade.
