The Hollywood Star Time was a radio dramatic anthology series in the United States. It was broadcast on CBS January 6, 1946-March 27, 1947. Sponsored by Frigidaire and General Motors, Herbert Marshall hosts and Alfred Newman is the conductor. With Newman at the musical reigns, Hollywood Star Time is worth listening to for the score alone. The show had a big budget, great musical score, and great stars. Hollywood Star Time started out as an extended ad for RKO pictures, broadcasting from the studio lunch room, later it aired movie adaptations with the stars reprising their roles on the radio.
