    How many of you old duffers and duffettes remember H. B. Goosestep? When I did the rock and roll show on weekends during my junior year in HS, I always used it to fill the time from the last sung song to news time. Remember that old live AM radio shows with live disc jockeys? Dead air was a no-no so you had to cue in an instrumental and fade it out when the news came on.

    The turntables had slip pads on them so you had the instrumental cued up on another channel and held it with one hand and as the last tune finished you switched in the cued channel and then let it go or maybe even mic'ed in to announce it, something like, " now the amazing Rivieras take us to news time with their hit H.B. Goosestep." I like to announce the instrumental tunes so listeners would know the name and who played it.

    He has a unique sound known as "Glenn Miller Sound", he had a way of blending the saxophones with the clarinet that was unique to his band.

    I'm watching an old Lucille Ball movie called The Dark Corner (film noire) from 1946. I absolutely love this title track; it took a bit of googling to find. The song is called Street Scene and is by Alfred Newman (not Alfred E. Newman!)



    Apparently this song was used in several other old movies as well, such as Cry of the City, with Victor Mature.
