More information about Final Jeopardy:

Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s “fireside chats” were a series of 30 radio addresses that he made between 1933 and 1944. The first address was “On The Banking Crisis”, and they ranged in topics from the National Recovery Administration to updates on World War II. During wartime, they were easily the most listened-to radio programs in the United States.

  1. I remember the fireside chats during WW2 very well, standing beside the big radio in a darkened house as air raid sirens sounded — we lived only a few miles from the air base on Long Island and ALL lights had to be out so that any attacking planes would not have any lights to guide them.

    How could they all have known, none of whom being alive or old enough to have lived through those times? It really blows my mind, man!
