It’s Christmastime in 1942. On a cold and snowy evening in New York, a close-knit group of entertainers at the WOV radio station—all heading somewhere else—are broadcasting the final holiday variety show for the troops overseas. Patriotic, sentimental, and overwhelmingly nostalgic, this holiday production—with songs including “Strike Up the Band”, “I’ll Be Seeing You”, and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”—is reminiscent of an era long since passed but never completely forgotten.
