Audio Book Summary
First heard in 1937, That Was The Year consisted of 39 fifteen minute long shows featuring historical vignettes dramatizing key moments in the lives of men and women whose contributions had a significant impact on the history of the modern world between the years 1896-1934. Among the intriguing historical nuggets listeners to That Was The Year heard were the faithful recreation of the first demonstration of a television broadcast in 1927; who made the first transcontinental telephone message in 1915; and how the Republic of China was established in 1912. Each show segment ended by playing for listeners a song that had been popular in the year just chronicled. "Lazy Bones" ended the 1933 segment; while "Roses of Picardy" closed out the segment on 1918.
