Happy Birthday, NBC!
« on: November 15, 2012, 11:20:21 AM »
Today, in 1926, NBC made its first network broadcast!

I know the station was responsible for some RR classics, like Gildy and The Six Shooter - what happens to be your favourite show from the network? Nightbeat? Dragnet?

Thats so cool. Out of the ones you listed I'd have to say Jimmy Stewart and the Six Shooter but remember Bob Hope was a huge part of NBC radio and we cannot forget what he did for our troops overseas. I'm surprised Dateline doesnt do a show about the history of NBC maybe they will... I never watch it Lol.

I suggested a story of some sort to Brian Williams at NBC Nightly News (especially highlighting the radio history).  We'll see.  But, yea, I would expect them to already have something in the works.

If I knew it was going to be on I would watch it.

I'm not sure I have a favorite radio show, there are just so many. But yes, a happy (if late?) birthday to NBC.
