Thrifting for Tunes - July 5

 I'm getting ready to head out on a rum-buying excursion in mid-July but I've still got plenty going on... 


C'mon! Spend A Little!

You know, around this time of year, my thoughts always turn to the things that make America great. I'm of course talking about tropical themed adult beverages, records on the backs of cereal boxes, paintings by animals, and of course internet radio. This week on "C'mon! Live A Little," we spotlight the best of consumer culture in a very special episode devoted to jingles, incidental music, sales convention shows and other detritus from the Great American Capitalist Wasteland. Well, it would be a wasteland were it not for all this fabulous music.

Glenn Miller Orchestra - “Do You Wanna Dance?”

One of the mainstays of the big band circuit, the Glenn Miller Orchestra actually spent a mere half a decade with its namesake at the helm. Miller built his his legendary band, with its unique clarinet-centric signature sound in 1938. But by 1942, he was making music for the United States Armed Forces, struggling to add jazz touches to traditional military marching band music. Two years later, while still in the service, Glenn disappeared somewhere over the English Channel. Two years after that, Glenn’s estate drafted sax player/vocalist Tex Beneke to lead the first Miller “ghost” orchestra.
