roller skating rinks I couldn't wait to go every Friday night and wear pom poms on my skates. We would have a spotlight skate,where the boys would shine a flashlight and if he shined it on you, you would skate with him.Also we would see who could skate through 2 glass coke bottles without tipping them over.
Radio was the lifeline for Americans in the 1940's, providing news, music and entertainment, much like television today. Programming included soap operas, quiz shows, children's hours, mystery stories, fine drama, and sports. Kate Smith and Arthur Godfrey were popular radio hosts. The government relied heavily on radio for propaganda. Radio faded in popularity as television became prominent. Many of the most popular radio shows continued on in television.
