Salute to the Swing Bands

Goodman, Kyser and Miller....

They all make things right here on Jukebox Saturday Night.

I'm of course referring to Benny Goodman, Kay Kyser and Glen Miller all whom are giants of the Swing Bands (and let us not forget Lawrence Welk!)

And that's the title of this week's show from February 24, 1979.

This week's host is Bobby Burgess, me thinks it will be a different Music Maker hosting each week.

Highlights from the show include.....

Johnny Zell blowing into his trumpet

Barbara and Bobby reunited and feeling good dancing together again....

And the Maestro leading the band, not knowing he does not have his trusty baton.

I have a feeling as well that there be a different host each week. Snce they did away with the interviews at the end. I like the up and coming shows as well. Would like to see more shows from the early 70's and late 60's. Not every week is a new one.
