USO - On With the Show

November 30th, 2010

Here's an unusual little special public service show assembled to promote the good work of the USO with our troops.  It features stars George Murphy, Eddie Bracken, Jack Carson, Danny Kaye, Dinah Shore, and Danny Thomas along with Michel Periere and his Orchestra.  Based on the matrix numbers on the disc, it probably was broadcast around 1949.

transcription label

The program was transferred from an original USO vinyl transcription, probably pressed by RCA, matrix numbers D9-QM-10580-1 and D9-QM-10581-1.

    Sounds interesting. Anything with Dinah from this time will have great singing.

    Will there be others in a series coming? Or was this a single production?

    Nope - I’m afraid this was a “one off” special of some kind, so this is the only one.
