A Bouquet for You, May 1947

October 13, 2010

It’s been a while! Thanks to those of you who commented or emailed me to make sure everything was okay. I haven’t had any more mechanical or technical failures, just a lot of busy-ness. I wish I had more time to devote to this project–I could easily spend all day, every day on it. But I don’t think my kids or husband would appreciate that.

This is another episode of A Bouquet for You. As I posted before, this CBS program, hosted by Franklyn McCormick, takes letters from listeners requesting songs and sends a bouquet to those whose letters are used on the air. One selected letter-writer who is also having an anniversary receives a “golden gift” of “beautifully matched rings in 14 karat gold.” Caesar Patrillo, Louise King and Billy Leach sing. The orchestra isn’t credited.

Songs include “Seems Like Old Times,” “Once in a While,” “Temptation,” “Peg of my Heart,” and “Little Gray Home in the West.”

In loving memory of my grandma, Eleanor “Peg” Highfield.
