You must have been "In the mood."

Yes, lost over the channel in a Norseman aircraft I believe, never to be seen again.  The movie "The Glenn Miller Story" airs frequently on TCM.

Oh man!!!! That's GOOD STUFF! Joe.. I still have a phonograph that works.. and I haven't put a record on its platter for WAY too long.

Here's one of my Glenn Miller LP's..

Chillin to  Glenn Miller  Dsc04315
Chillin to  Glenn Miller  Dsc04316

It was a hand-me-down.. along with scads of other greats including Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Miles Davis.. the list goes on!

My turntable resides under my laptop in my shop.. Sad

Chillin to  Glenn Miller  Dsc04317

It was my grandfather's.. a "Sears"/LXI series console with a tuner and cassette-deck. Its speaker-cabs are still used daily in our living-room with a Pioneer 4ch receiver connected to the TV audio. There's storage below for LP's.. and it's full of goodies!

It can be connected to my Denon home-theater workshop system as easily as swapping the audio-cable from my laptop with an adapter-plug. The sound of LP's is mahhhhvelous.. There's a warm sonic "presence" to analog recordings.. as well as analog (tube) amplification.. that just can't be compared to the cold "sterile" sound of digital-audio.

I have some more vinyl in the spare-room.. including some very old 78rpm relics (on the top-shelf)

Chillin to  Glenn Miller  Dsc04319

I'm almost sure that there's some Glenn Miller recordings on those 78's.. I have two other turntables that have 78 speed-selectors.. but they need stylus's.

Thanks for posting this Joe! Keep on "chillin"...  Smile

Somehow my referance to The Glenn Miller Story led me to Youtube and another movie "With a song in my heart" starring Susan Hayward as Jane Froman the greaterst female singer that you never heard of. Jane almost lost a leg in a plane crash while on her way to Europe in WW-2 to entertain the troops. Probably my connection the the Glenn Miller story. On crutches she finally made the journey two years later.

Just finished watching it, Susan and Jane, two remarkable talents.

I like a little Glenn Miller once in awhile.

I must have at least 4-5 copies of this tape. I tend to accumulate multiples of certain titles when I buy boxes full and collections of tapes. Anyone here have an 8-track player? Yours if you want it. I know there's a few more albums/collections in my crates of 8-tracks. I also know there's a few LPs on the shelf. This is the kind of stuff I used to listen to with my Grandpa.
