Radio Broadcast Log Of:
You Are There
 
     This series was created by Goodman Ace.  Rights right, Goodman Ace of Easy Aces fame.  The format of the program was to give you historical events, like they would be presented in today’s news broadcasts, and these programs were broadcast in the late 1940’s.  The event, interviews with the principles involved, digestion of the facts and interpretation of the events.  You, the listener, along with great sound effects, are put in the middle of each historic presentation with each broadcast.  Ahead of it’s time.  The series started out with the title of CBS Is There until 05/02/48, then changed the title to You Are There.
     Special thanks to Shawn Wells with help in the research of this log.
