Show synopsis For many years, these familiar words rang out from news broadcaster, Walter Cronkite. Labeled as the most respected and identifiable journalist of the 20th century, Mr. Cronkite has spent a lifetime reporting the news. His illustrious career began in radio and as a newspaper reporter. He eventually moved into television and joined CBS in 1950. In 1962 he began his long tenure as anchorman at the CBS News desk. As legendary newsman, author, documentary film maker and former anchorman, Walter Cronkite embodies credibility. For this reason, Radio Spirits has asked him to help select the 60 all-time greatest radio shows of the 20th century. Listeners will never forget the day martians invaded the earth as Orson Welles broadcast his legendary "War of the Worlds". The hysteria that followed was a clear indicator of the power of radio. Even today, the hilarious comedy routine by Abbott & Costello, "Who's on First", is enjoyed by all generations. As we enter the 21st century, radio's contribution will forever be recognized as a valuable piece of American history and culture. This outstanding collection represents the best of early radio programming.
