I’m back! Hopefully my computer will continue to work for a while now.
This program is, I think, the day that Squibb changed the name of its show from “To Your Good Health from the House of Squibb” to “Music from the House of Squibb.” What’s interesting, though, is that the record label still says “To Your Good Health,” like maybe the affiliates didn’t know about the name change. It’s also the day after D-Day! The programming was obviously changed to reflect what was going on in the world, as this is a whole show of patriotic tunes.
As always, the Squibb Orchestra and Chorus of Stars is directed by Lyn Murray. Hubie Hendrie is the guest soloist. The songs performed are “When Johnny Comes Marching Home,” “The Cassions Go Rolling Along,” “The Army Air Corps Song,” “The Pledge of Allegience,” and “The House I Live In.”
A couple of times in the recording you’ll hear a series of beeps. Those are on the original record, not a digital problem. I’m guessing maybe they’re some kind of alert signal for news updates, or something along those lines. I’m sure somebody will be able to tell me exactly what they are!
Here’s the direct link to my bandcamp page for this show.
