There's a thread for the last movie you saw and the last TV show you watch, and it's criminal that in all these years there's never been a thread to discuss the last radio program you heard. So here it is. I just finished listening to Paul Whiteman and his orchestra broadcasting from the Hotel New Yorker on November 6, 1939. Not the Whiteman of the twenties and early thirties, but a slimmed-down band in the swing manner. Joan Edwards, daughter of Gus, and The Modernaires, late of Charlie Barnet, and eventually to be of Glenn Miller, were featured on the vocals. Pleasant tunes to kill half an hour while doing the washing.
