Moon River


Out of WLW in Cincinnati, Moon River was a local old time radio show that was heard worldwide due to WLW's powerful transmitter (500,000 watts).

Moon River program included a hypnotic narrator, soothing female vocal trio, violin, and the Moon River organ. Rumor has it that the Moon River organ and original transmitter still exist.

A late night old time radio show, dreamy and relaxing, the poems often seem nonsensical perhaps drifting listeners further into the kingdom of sleep. Fittingly sponsored by Southern Cross Spring Mattress Company, the advertisement blend seamlessly into the show.(Text from otrcat)

These shows are so relaxing, perfect to listen to at bed time; or perhaps with someone special in front of a fireplace on one of those chili nights.

  1. Have you run across any Moon River segments where Doris Day is a featured singer? Thanks in advance.
