Biography

Broadcast from the Paramount Theater in New York City, December 1939 to March 1940, by CBS, sponsored by Chesterfield Cigarettes.

For a few months the Andrews Sisters joined Glenn Miller on his new weekly radio broadcasts. This is a compilation with all the Andrews Sisters’ songs from these broadcasts, plus some other songs with Glenn Miller featuring Ray Eberle, Marion Hutton, and Tex Beneke.

The broadcasts were originally recorded to acetate records, and transferred to analog tape in 1965. Digitally remastered by CEDAR Restauration in 2003 from the 1965 tapes, because the original acetate records had disintegrated. The source was in bad shape, and the sound engineers were able to “squeeze the most realistic sound from the most unrealistic sources. The ticks and pops and other background noise were minimized as much as was prudent”.

The introduction and closing announcements on each CD are from the original shows, and include sponsor advertising. Most of the songs feature announcements in the beginning. The idea of this compilation was to capture these historic documents, as well as people’s excitement over these broadcasts back then.

This CD set got excellent customer reviews at Amazon. The songs actually sound great, and feature very lively performances.
