The Lux Radio Theatre was one of radio's most popular series, attracting Hollywood's top stars and boasting a lavish budget. It began in 1934 by featuring dramas from Broadway, but there was not enough material to support the show. In an attempt to reverse the slipping ratings, the show was moved to Hollywood in 1936, where there was plenty of material and talent. In fact, filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille often served as the host.

"Radio John Wayne"
Fantastic adaption of She Wore A Yellow Rose! I'm a big John Wayne fan, so this was a treat listening to him on the radio from lone a go. I've two more to listen and this will not take me very long. and to listen to these programs. Would really like to see more , good job bringing these back to life!
"The DUKE on Radio WONDERFUL!"
The print version vs. the audio version is like comparing apples and oranges! Both have certain advantages. I will say that if you are a fan of John Wayne and John Ford does it realy matter!? John Wayne is John Wayne no matter how or where you encounter his expertise as a performer. At times he comes off a bit stiff on the audio version but when I thought about it he comes off a bit stiff in his print roles. I have enjoyed ALL of his performances going way back to the 1930's and some of his "one reelers" that he did with Yakima Knute and some of the old timers all the way up through his last films! Awesome actor awesome work. . . what else can you say.
A+ for any John Wayne fans! Well worth the time.
