The Eddy Duchin Show - Pgm 2

May 22nd, 2009 · Comments

Let's take a break with a quarter hour of light music provided by Eddy Duchin.  "The Eddy Duchin Show" was syndicated in the late 1940s to promote the Naval Reserve.

In program 2 of the series, we hear "The Best Things in Life are Free", "My Darling, My Darling" (sung by Tommy Mercer), "It Had to Be You" (sung by guest Georgia Gibbs); and medley of "A Pretty Girl is Like a Melody" and "Easter Parade".  This particular episode is in honor of the Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland and the announcements promote opportunities for nurses and doctors in the Naval Reserve.

The show was dubbed directly from an original Allied Record vinyl transcription, matrix number DUCHIN-FS-ABC-127-1 D-33685.

I have the complete 13 episode Duchin series and will post occasional programs in the series.

The Eddy Duchin Show - Pgm 1

September 4th, 2008 · Comments

"The Eddy Duchin Show" was produced for the US Navy in the late 1940s and featured a different guest vocalist each week.  There are thirteen programs in the series.

Duchin, of course, was a veteran of the US Navy and seems comfortable engaging in the promos for different branches of Navy service in the show.  For those unfamiliar with Duchin, his piano style might remind you a bit of Liberace, but his band could do some hot numbers when they wanted to.

Program 1 in the series is a tribute to the Naval Air Station at Pensacola, Florida.  Songs include "Blue Skies", "Rendezvous With a Rose" sung by Tommy Mercer, "Begin the Beguine" by guest Jane Froman, and "The Man I Love".

The program was transferred from an original Allied Radio vinyl transcription, matrix number D-33559 FS-ABC-ND-129-1.
