We never had a radio till we settled in a city just after the end of WWII, and then my interests at 6 yo ran to "The Lone Ranger".
I am amazed at the number of images and movie clips Burns was able to find. The entire series shows FDRs shortcomings... but also shows just how much insight he had about how fast he dared push the "New Deal" and impending war.
