The Eddy Duchin Show - Pgm 2

May 22nd, 2009

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.

transcription label

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.
