Radio Memories



     Arthur Godfrey began his radio career on NBC as a staff announcer in 1930 where he remained until 1933.  He moved to CBS in 1934, again as a staff announcer and very quickly became a personality with his own programs until the end of his career.  This series was heard over the CBS radio network beginning on 04/30/45, as a 30 minute sustaining morning program, five times a week from New York.  It was lengthened to 45 minutes beginning on 08/27/45.  The program length varied from 30 to 60 minutes beginning 04/29/46.  Jack Sterling finally replaced Arthur Godfrey on this particular program starting 11/01/48, but Arthur continued various ARTHUR GODFREY TIME programs until 04/30/72 when he left the air for good.
