This week's show was originally broadcast exactly 5 years ago. Besides celebrating the birthdays of J. Fred Coots, Henry Hall, Bing and Billy Cotton, we listen to this past week in recording history and I correct a mistake. Yes, that's right. I made a mistake. I know. It's hard to believe, but true. My favorite record this week has got to be "Sweet Gerogia Brown" by Oliver Naylor's Orchestra in the last segment. What's your favorite?
