"It'll make you yell SOLID!" boasted the ads for the Monogram musical Campus Rhythm. Johnny Downs stars as Scoop, a rather long-in-tooth college newspaper correspondent who suspects something when a vaguely familiar-looking young lady enrolls in school. The girl is Joan (Gale Storm), a popular radio singer, who has walked out on her sponsor and returned to college under a pseudonym. Joan becomes the campus pariah when she is forced to drop out of a fund-raising college variety show because of her radio contract. But all is forgiven by the final reel, wherein Joan and the entire ensemble participate in a huge, cathartic production number. The film's biggest laughs are engendered by Candy Candido, he of the astonishigly versatile trick voice ("Ah'm feeelin'?mighty?.lowwwww").
