Raymond Scott - October 3, 1944

January 26th, 2019

We come to the end of our short run of Raymond Scott’s regular fifteen minute program heard on CBS with more arrangements that sound suspiciously like they were modeled after the Glenn Miller band. 

Dorothy Collins is the featured vocalist and the first number is “Just Close Your Eyes”.  The program was originally heard on October 3, 1944 and the version we’ll hear was distributed to the Armed Forces Radio Network as program 147 in the series.

The program was digitized from an original 16” vinyl Armed Forces Radio transcription.  The date is from the disc matrix.

Again we express our thanks to blog listener William Harris for his donation of the disc to the collection!
