Can you believe it–another post already?

This is another episode of “Sing Along with the Landt Trio” of Karl, Jack and Dan. This program has a little extra interest to it: it’s Army Day!

Here’s another episode of “To Your Good Health from the House of Squibb.”  As always, we have the Squibb Orchestra and Chorus of Stars directed by Lyn Murray. Today’s special guest soloist is Audrey Marsh. The program is all music by Vincent Youmans including “Flying Down to Rio,” “More than you Know,” “Orchids in the Moonlight” and “Through the Years.” There is also a nice ad for Squibb Tooth Powder that makes reference to a visit to a warship, and a great public service announcement about not paying more than the government’s posted maximum price for items that were price-restricted during the war.
