The building where our collections, including the discs and the equipment used to make the shows you’ve been downloading and enjoying, is being sold as part of bankruptcy proceedings.
If you want us to continue providing shows to you (and we have quite a few, most of which are unavailable in any encoded format), please visit the link below to learn how you can help.
We can only do this with everyone’s help.
These shows were on discs in such good shape, they needed virtually no cleanup or noise reduction. I worked a little extra hard, though, to get them to you right away. Please enjoy the dazzling sound of Les Brown’s big band and vocalists.

First Song April Showers

An all-music show, this appears to be a recruiting show, this time for the U.S. Marines. I’m not going to complain about the armed forces commercials, because the sound on this disc was beautiful and clear. I hope you like it.
Don’t miss the snappy versions of a few songs that might be quite new to those of us who are used to the usual popular songs of the day. This includes “The Land of Oo-Bla-Dee”, a song I’ve never heard before (and am still trying to puzzle out in my head – when you hear it, you’ll understand).
