"Midge at the Mike" lays it on disgustingly thick & maniacly bigoted, then closes out her broadcast segment.

The Voice of Bigotry

From the above, "Midge at the Mike" weaves a nostalgic web upon the women of America as a pretext to her attacking the British.

The Voice of Bigotry

From the same as above, a passion play upon American homefront morale by way of anti-British and disturbing anti-semetic remarks.

Digitized from my own personal archival copy, the only one in North America - a RealAudio file of an entire broadcast of "Gerry's Front", where "Sally" teams up with Kurt Schwedler ("Radio Charlie") to bombard British Troops in 1943 Italy with pro-German and anti-American propaganda. Schwedler leads a hand-picked orchestra (named in these broadcasts as "Bruno and the Swinging Tigers") comprised of men rescued from the Russian front & former concentration camp internees imprisoned for playing swing music in the first place - men who in many cases are literally playing for their lives. Other show segments include reading off the names of recently surrendered soldiers along with their messages home, songs by "The Three Doves of Peace" ("Komm aun alongk, komm aun alongk, Alegktzender's Rrriegktheim Bent") and "Three Little Words", an incredible anti-Roosevelt propaganda travesty that one could only have gotten away with on radio.

From the above , EVIL genius. Axis Sally opens the show, followed by Kurt Schwedler & orchestra performing what they pretend to be other than Bennie Goodman's "A Smooth One" - a particular favorite (in its original form) on the Japanese propaganda program that featured "Tokyo Rose" (Iva Toguri), The Zero Hour. Of all German swing propaganda recordings, this is one of the most incredible - they simply sound TOO GOOD.

The conclusion of the above broadcast, in RealAudio.

The Voice of Bigotry

Another episode of "Gerry's Front", also digitized from my own personal archival copy, in RealAudio. This particular broadcast was directed at American soldiers rather than British, but the format is identical, with the exception that it contains some of the worst delivered propaganda hooey ever recorded. Truly, with propaganda like this, in all magnaminity, no wonder the Third Reich lost the war.

The conclusion of the above broadcast, in RealAudio. And the hooey just keeps on coming & coming.

The Voice of Bigotry

A RealVideo 5.0 file of Paramount Newreel's 8/28/48 segment on the return of Mildred Gillars to the U.S. to stand trial for treason, followed by a piece on Iva Toguri in Tokyo and the possiblity of her having the same fate. It's amazing, given the upbeat tone of the images and soundtrack used during the Gillar's section, that such can be used to color the opinions of a veritable traitor, especially when compared to those used while reporting about Iva Toguri, who was innocent.
