Grand Central Station 1937 reviewGrand Central Station radio show

Like every other train station Grand Central Station in New York City is a place where every day thousands of people rush to work, begin or end their holiday, travel in business or to deal with personal problems. Here is where their stories begin and here is where they can end. For us, the audience, Grand Central Station is a point in which every time we start the journey to learn someone life story.

Grand Central Station was a long-running drama show (sometimes described as light drama) that in each episode presented story of different people who arrive to New York City. For some of them it was a beginning of new life, for others a point in which they have to revalue their life or make a difficult decision. Through years the episode changed, some of them told romance stories, some others simple every day situations that might happen to everyone, but for all of them the train station was a starting point.

While the show contained a variety of different episodes and subject the style was drama, but nothing too deep or too complicated with the happy ending - typical drama show on a verge of being soap opera, although with different story in each episode and different cast it is far from being typical soap opera.
