Program 85 - Glenn Miller - Part 1

Glenn Miller used radio to build the most popular band in America, through late night band remotes and eventually “Moonlight Serenade” sponsored by Chesterfield. The story of those radio broadcasts is told through the voices of Rudy Vallee, Teddy Wilson, Gene Krupa, Duke Ellington, Bob Eberly, Ray Eberle, Artie Shaw, Ray McKinley, and Paula Kelly.

This program was not part of the original "Golden Age of Radio" series. (Based on interviews conducted by Dick Bertel from 1965 to 1971)
