“The NBC Symphony of the Air” for Outstanding Entertainment in Drama





 1945 | NBC Radio

Outstanding Entertainment in Music: The Board was, as always, grateful for the superb recordings of the Metropolitan Opera and the great symphonies. In choosing the NBC Symphony of the Air for a music award, the Board salutes not only a magnificent conductor, but takes special recognition of an orchestra brought together explicitly for the radio and far-reaching educational program which together have made fine music a living force in millions of American homes.
