September 14, 1944
On this date Glenn Miller had a short but interesting interview with Vernon Harris for the BBC radio show "Here's Wishing You Well Again", a regular BBC program for all hospitals.
Miller's part was recorded on the 14th and the rest of the show on the 15th. Miller was ill on the 15th. Broadcast date was the 21st. This clip was supplied by Miller fan Mike. Thank you, Mike!
Here is a 10" LP from the American Forces Network. It is Volume 1 of 2 and is the
original issue. Side 2 has Poinciana and In The Mood reversed on the label or on the
record - depending on how you like your chickens and eggs ordered.
These are a few of the recordings made for propaganda broadcasts and
have some of Ilsa on them. Overall not a great job of record making but it is
a period curiosity item. You can listen to both sides below.
