The 1930s marked the worst financial crisis in United States history,  the Great Depression. Men and women struggled to find jobs in order  to feed their families. During these tough years, people did not have  money to spend on entertainments and dance clubs. The one and  only, Radio continued to be the center of entertainment in America.  Under this condition, it became the most popular music of the 1930's  and 1940's. Jazz was played on the airwaves night after night. For  listeners, this exciting music made the Great Depression more  bearable. It reminded them of what America could be.  During 1939-1945, many jazz musicians were drafted to fight in World  War II. Big dance bands had difficulties finding musicians. In the  United States, there were war restrictions on the use of plastics and  gasoline. Fewer records were produced to conserve plastic, and  gasoline cutbacks made it difficult for bands to travel. African
