On the Air is set in a 1940’s radio studio. Lieutenant Jack O’Brien is just coming home for Christmas from the war to the radio station he used to work at. His love Rosie has been waiting three years for him to return and has been dying to see him. She has been very worried that over the time he was gone, he doesn’t love her anymore. He eases her fears until the famous Darla Davenport comes to the radio station for the annual Christmas Show broadcast and through a series of events Rosie starts to believe that Jack loves Darla and not her.
