Radio Show Review: Can You Imagine That?

Can You Imagine That? was one of several golden age programs dedicated to weird and unusual facts. It was produced in 1940 as a syndicated program. Can You Imagine That? focused on strange cases such as the 92 year-old man that started teething and interesting facts about Paul Revere’s ride, and two famous women fighting a duel with fingernails. These radio dramatizations of the weird, the strange, and amusing were hardly alone with other programs such as Strange as it Seems and Ripley’s doing just as competent a job.

What makes Can You Imagine That stand out is its music history segment which tell the histories of great songs of the era such as, “I”ll Take You Home Again, Kathleen” and “It’s a Long Way to Tipperary.” These stories great songs, that have sometimes even been forgotten with the years come to life.

Can You Imagine This is  a wonderful for those who love fun facts and music history with great acting, great writing, and wonderful music.
