February 14th, 2010

Let's give another episode of "The Magic of Music" a spin.

This late-era otr show featured musical guests talking about their latest albums and was transcribed in Hollywood and sponsored by the Marine Corps Reserve and Recruiting.  Originally broadcast on Mutual, the show features host Bob Osterburg and his singing theme song.

In program 43, our guest is Don Nelson, the brother of bandleader Ozzie Nelson, promoting his lp, "The Wind".  The conversation includes some discussion of unusual orchestral instruments in jazz and one of the tracks on the album features a solo on recorder.  This is a rebroadcast of the series on the Armed Forces Radio and Television Service, so we hear some psas about NATO.

The show was transcribed from an original AFRTS vinyl transcription dated May 9, 1958 on the matrix.
