“BROADCASTING LIVE, all across America, to all the ships at sea, and to all our boys in uniform stationed abroad, this is
WARTIME RADIO REVUE!”
And so begins another evening with Pete Jacobs and his 16-piece big-band. Interspersing the hits of the Thirties and Forties, along with late-breaking news-stories from the war-years, as well as several original songs, and even some 1940-style radio commercials, listening to this band is like taking a time-machine back to a World War Two U.S.O. show. And with their three young female vocalists, a hot, driving rhythm section, and eight-piece horn section, the “classic-swing” sound is both full and authentic!. And when you add in their “armed-forces style” khaki-colored uniforms, it’s all there!
