Biographical/Historical note

Charles Fuller (1887-1968) was a Baptist minister and radio evangelist. He gained renown as the radio host and speaker of The Old Fashioned Revival Hour, a weekly Sunday broadcast that aired from 1937 to 1968. The first nationwide broadcast occurred on October 3, 1937, on the Mutual Broadcasting System. Beginning in 1951, the program was carried on the ABC Radio Network, heard on more than 650 radio stations. The Old Fashioned Revival Hour broadcast was originally recorded in a Hollywood studio. In 1941, it was moved to the old Municipal Auditorium in Long Beach, California. From 1941 through 1958, audiences attended services that were broadcast live on the radio from the Long Beach Municipal Auditorium. After January 12, 1958, the program was again produced in a studio, until it ended in 1968. The broadcasts were also noted for the music, featuring the Old Fashioned Revival Hour Choir and quartet, accompanied by organist George Broadbent and pianist Rudy Atwood. Several popular recordings were made by the choir in the 1940s and 1950s. Re-broadcasts of the Old Fashioned Revival Hour are now streamed weekly on the internet.
