News about the improving situation for the Allies in Normandy. Singiser compares that situation with the east, where the wider front works to the advantage of the attacking Red Army.
News from Japan, including changes in leadership for the Imperial Army and Navy.
News of the Democratic National Convention, where it is possible that Henry Wallace might be replaced as Roosevelts V.P. The front runners to oust Wallace are Senator Barkley of Kentucky and James Byrnes, Director of War Mobilization. Senator Truman of Missoura is considered a dark horse in that race. Still, the smart money says Wallace will keep his place on the ticket.

I remember Mutual. They really went after the big voices from the early days of radio (or younger guys who could sound like it.)
Jim Bohanan who does an overnight show on CBS Radio is an alum...
Wow, I’m old enough to remember Frank Singiser, Gabriel Heatter and Alois Havrilla.

“Wow, Im old enough to remember Frank Singiser, Gabriel Heatter and Alois Havrilla.”
I was only 6 months old when this was broadcast.
Never bet with the “smart money.”
The 48 conventions were broadcast to the exclusion of most anything else. Do not know if the case was the same for the 44, but that was in the days before the REA & our radio relied upon the A, B and C batteries, all with limited life.
