The Magic of Music - Pgm 42

October 15th, 2009

Now for a bit of music and chat with "The Magic of Music", a show transcribed in Hollywood for the Marine Corps Reserve and Recruiting and originally broadcast on Mutual.

transcription label

Program 42 of the series as broadcast on AFRS, features guest Kathy Barr promoting her new album "Follow Me".  Barr was one of several female vocalists of the fifties that felt at ease with more sultry and uptempo material.  She was brought to the attention of RCA by Mario Lanza.  You guys out there might be saying "hubba hubba" when you take a look at the cover of the album.  The show includes informational AFRTS announcements about NATO for the troops.

Our program was transferred from an original AFRTS vinyl microgroove transcription.  It's dated May 2, 1958 in the matrix, which could be the date the show was recorded, originally broadcast on Mutual, or the date this version was mastered by AFRTS engineers.

    I wasn’t wild about the previously-posted episode since it was about jazz, but that album cover of Kathy Barr sure got me curious, so I’m going to listen.

    That cover makes me wonder who came first: her or Julie London?
