This little opus chronicles the importance of radio in the lives of everybody in the world. Chinese cops are alerted to a robbery via their rickshaw radio; a cannibal tunes into a cooking lesson; an Eskimo's radio is swallowed by a music-loving whale; and a sultan ignores a belly dancer to listen to "Amos 'N' Andy." The title song (from Gold Diggers of 1933) is performed on station "KFWB" by caricatures of Greta Garbo, ZaSu Pitts and Mae West. And there's more: Can YOU name another cartoon that boasts of cameo appearances by everyone from James Cagney to Benito Mussolini?
