My Mondays' Music this week is a final tribute to the D-Day invasion which took place 70 years ago last Friday. This is some of the music that was being listened to by the people stateside and by the soldiers, sailors and air men in England and eventually in Europe.
We start off with Harry James and Cherry.
Another Harry James arrangement of a song that had been popular throughout the great depression and for the first sever"al years of theWar. ''I'll get by"
Tommy Dorsey and his Orchestra close things out with Besame Mucho
Now closing things out for this special Mondays' Music is Glenn Miller and his orchestra with Moonlight Serenade, their theme which along with the other music and arrangements of Glenn Millers' orchestra would remain popular 70 years after the death of Glenn Miller who died only a few months after D-Day. His transport went vanishing while flying from England to a USO show that Miller was to lead.
Until next time, this is Tamirisc M Dagda signing off.
