Featuring favorites such as "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" and "Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree," members of Nostalgia Entertainment present this costumed and piano-accompanied reenactment of a 1940s radio hour. While answering musical requests from soldiers and loved ones during wartime, Patti, Maxine and Andrew entertain the "studio audience" with The Andrews Sisters-style tunes and choreography, Abbott and Costello comedy sketches and a touching tribute to Veterans of the United States Armed Forces. This program is perfect to get audience members in the Fourth of July spirit!
