Watch Video: Radio Sound Effects

Have you ever wondered how they did all of those great sound effects on those old radio shows in the 1930's and 1940's?  Now you have a chance to look behind the scenes at how the sound men and women created the broadcasts with sound effects. The nine minute video below, "Back of the Mic", begins with a child listening to the radio and his imagination is put on the screen. The camera then goes to a 1930's era radio sound studio where the program is originating. I started the video at the 2 minute mark to get to the good parts of the video.

This video gives you an insightful look at how those creative and life-like sounds were created.  Enjoy!
