This film's formula isn't that different from most of the Thelma Todd/Patsy Kelly shorts. Thelma is pretty but has little personality and Patsy is loud, brash and overbearing. The only major difference is that this time they get jobs at a radio station putting on a sappy radio program and this setting is even more dull than what you usually find in their films. The jokes, such as they are, aren't funny and just fall flat again and again. To make things worse, one of the singing groups (a trio) is among the most horrible I have ever seen and heard...and at least that helps the viewer to be distracted from how boorish Kelly is when she breaks into an intense tap dance routine (which she did three or four times during the film). Not the least bit entertaining despite being made by Hal Roach studios. This turkey is only for devoted fans of the comedy team.
