To honor our fallen soldiers this weekend, host Manny Pacheco takes time to profile Hollywood's war effort. Much like the Hollywood Canteen, the USO allowed major stars to donate their time to entertain our troops in between battles. Bob Hope, Martha Raye, Jack Benny, Marlene Dietrich, Danny Kaye, Marilyn Monroe and others, spent treasured time with our men in uniform during World War II, the Korean conflict, the Vietnam War and beyond. What a lovely tribute as we approach Memorial Day.
Broadcaster Joe Lyons chimes in with his Backlot report, with news and notes that reference Hollywood's past.
