CAVALCADE OF AMERICA
Radio's most prestigious series of historical dramas was undoubtedly Cavalcade of America, featuring detailed slices of Americana enacted by some of the medium's top talents. It began, in 1935, as a venture into thinly-veiled propaganda by its sponsor DuPont. By the 1940s, the program had evolved into a meticulously-researched presentation of American history. Scripts were written by major literary talents, vetted by top academics, and covered a surprising breadth of subject matter (especially during the war years). Many of the greatest names of Broadway and Hollywood took their turns at the Cavalcade microphone, in stories that offered a wide-ranging definition of what it meant to be an American. Always rated as a top educational feature, the Cavalcade enjoyed a healthy eighteen-year network run. In fact, many of its programs were distributed as classroom recordings...and syndicated reruns were still heard into the 1980s.
