Series Synopsis: Coast-to-Coast on a Bus began at WJZ as The Children’s Hour. It became a training ground for many young singers and radio actors, some of whom had notable careers. It was said to be “the pride and joy” of its host, Milton Cross, who stood at the helm across a two-decade run. On the Air: The Encyclopedia of Old-Time Radio by John Dunning
