Bob Hope career in broadcasting spanned sixty-four years and included a long association with NBC. Hope made his network radio debut in 1937 on NBC. His first regular series for NBC Radio was the Woodbury Soap Hour. A year later The Pepsodent Radio Show Starring Bob Hope began, and would run through 1953.
The Bob Hope Show was similar to the Bing Crosby Show. Like Crosby, he came to radio early and stayed late. He shared with Crosby an ability with words, a glibness, a keen intelligence. They did not however share their styles. Crosby on the air was slow and mellow: Hope was a machine gun, constantly firing off jokes.©2006 OTRCAT INC - All Rights Reserved.
