Here’s to Romance - Pgm 55

August 25th, 2010

It's been awhile since we heard our quirky musical variety series, "Here's to Romance".

transcription label

Program 55 of the series as it was heard on AFRS was originally broadcast on CBS on June 21, 1945.  The first song on the show is "June is Bustin' Out All Over".  Robert Ripley tells his "Believe It or Not" story about the discovery of penicillin - there's even an appearance by Sir Alexander Fleming himself.  The show features Larry Douglas, Ray Bloch and His Orchestra, guest Marian Hutton and host Jim Ameche.

This previously uncirculated show was dubbed direct from the original AFRS vinyl transcription; the date of the program is from the disc matrix.
