In 1919, electrician Chuck Hadley (Jack Oakie) befriends former pilot Rix Martin (John Payne), and the men become interested in developing radio as an entertainment tool. With Chuck's girlfriend, singer Vicki Adams (Alice Faye), the men arrange a broadcast -- but disaster strikes, and the event is a failure. Undaunted, the friends continue, airing a successful boxing broadcast with the help of a wealthy investor. But their success is threatened when Chuck discovers Vicki is in love with Rix.

  • It barely works, plot-wise, although the chemistry of the three leads is so sharp that we grant the story much forgiveness.

    Some fine singing by Alice and some quality performances by specialty acts plus a good contribution from Jack Oakie make this pleasant enough but it remans a minor musical.
