On Air is a ground breaking collection representing a landmark archival discovery of Mary Martin broadcast recordings from 1939-1950. Almost all of the performances featured on this collection have gone unheard since their original transmission and this release ensures these historic broadcasts are no longer lost to history.

Issued as a Deluxe 2CD Set, the album compiles selections from Mary's many broadcasts for the 'Good News' and 'Kraft Music Hall' shows for which she was resident vocalist. Other highlights include Mary's first radio broadcast of her signature song 'My Heart Belongs to Daddy', introduced by Rudy Vallee. The selections include popular standards of the era, songs from Mary's own back catalogue of stage and film productions and her unique interpretations of operatic arias in the style of swing.

On Air is a collaboration with The Mary Martin Collection & Archive at The Doss Heritage and Culture Center in Weatherford, Texas and uses Mary's own private 78rpm transcription records housed at the Center. These one of a kind discs, most of which were pressed on fragile glass acetates, have been carefully transferred and restored specifically for this release. The CD is further complemented with extensive sleeve notes by Broadway historian and Mary Martin archivist George Dansker, plus a complete listing of broadcast dates for the featured performances.
