"The Best Sound Yet From Your Radio Set."

Christmas is in the air and on the air in this charming aircheck of WMGM just two days before the Big Day in 1959.

As we tune in, Dean Hunter is playing that evening's "sellers" with cigarette ads, long melodic jingles, live reads, news with clackety-clack teletype machines underneath the reader's voice, with lots of familiar and not-so familiar songs.
