I wouldn’t have thought to put these two things together, would you?

The National Guard Show
Starring Mindy Carson and Red Barber

Carson provides the vocals, while Barber does a short sports interviews.

vocalist Mindy Carson

Goldin dates these episodes as 1951, and so does the person who wrote on the label.

I have to wonder if this show is an early version of what we’ve already seen as “Let’s Go to Town”.  What I like better about these is that they sound like they are live performances of these songs, instead of commercial ones.  Carson sounds wonderful backed by the small ensembles.

  1. I wasn’t having any luck downloading the last show on my usual computer, but was able to on a different one. Ditto this week.

    Has anyone else had problems?

    1. I will put this out to the downloaders, but I imagine most have been and gone.

      So, I will add this question to the next post, in case there is an ongoing problem with the file storage service.
