JOHN RAITT and ARTHUR GODFREY
Original portrait of Godfrey, drawn by John Raitt, signed by both!
Original Art signed: "Best wishes/Arthur Godfrey", 5x8. Pencil drawing also signed by the artist "Raitt". ARTHUR GODFREY (1903-1983) began his radio career as a staff announcer on NBC (1930-1933). He moved to CBS in 1934, again as a staff announcer, but very quickly became a personality with his own programs. Arthur Godfrey Time was broadcast from 1945-1972. In the late 1940s, Godfrey did three different CBS radio shows a day, one in the morning and two at night. He was enormously popular with his ukelele-playing folksy manner, earning around $400,000 a year (even before additional exposure on TV after 1948 made him a broadcasting superstar). CBS estimated in the 1940s that 40 million people listened to him at least once a week. While in college in the 1930s, JOHN RAITT began drawing portraits of famous people. He sent his artwork to each subject with a request that it be autographed and returned to him. Adhesive residue at corners. Two horizontal folds. Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
