How Were Early Radio Programs Performed?


A 1938 short film shows how radio programs recreated popular stories and TV episodes complete with sound effects and voice artists. The creativity and timing is amazing, and the art prompted the development of foley, or creating sound effects for the screen.

I’ve posted this one before, but it ties in perfectly to show how foley has evolved over time.

    1. I’m so glad you liked it. Yes, I thought it was great seeing how they make all the sound effects. I’ve always gotten a kick out of the punch effects they have in westerns, especially when it’s obvious the two actors didn’t even touch each other! Haha! Thanks for reading.
