Gladys Swarthout was a popular guest and regular participant on many radio shows of the '30s and '40s and into the early '50s.


I'm looking to document more of the items, but we'll see what comes up.  One show was the The Prudential Hour. This was a popular CBS show featuring concert music, with opera star Gladys Swarthout and, as host, the well known opera critic Deems Taylor.  Her many records also increased her recognition with the public. This listing is still being compiled. The dates show a specific date or a range of dates between which Gladys appeard on a show. The dates are based on a wide number of sources, including a number of radio transcription disks. Clicking on the Show will provide a listing of songs that Gladys was known to have sung on the shows and the dates they occurred.

Gladys also appeared on Television on What's My Line on January 14, 1951 (Episode #35) as the Mystery Guest.
