Over 90% of Peggy Lee's radio broadcasts with Benny Goodman are actually remotes -- i.e., radio network transmissions of live dates. For that reason, this discography covers her radio work with Goodman in the same page that it dedicates to their concert work together. To see the page in question, click here: Live And On The Radio With Benny Goodman.

Located on Vine Street (between the Hollywood and Sunset Boulevards), the Radio Room was actually a very popular hangout among people from the worlds of music and radio during the 1940s -- arguably, the hangout for that crowd. There was no radio station in it. Instead, the Radio Room consisted of a bar, a bowling alley and, according to Dave Dexter, Jr, "a sidewalk {which was} the meeting place for most people in the music business."]
