Musical

Loaded with appeal and hopefulness, the Andrews Sisters were cherished by the numerous soldiers they untiringly entertained at some stage in World War II. During their timeless career, the marvelous trio recorded more than 1,800 songs and sold over 90 million records. Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the Andrews Sisters began their music careers when they were still in their teens.

Andrew SistersIn 1937, the Andrews Sisters were discovered by Dave Kapp, who heard them over a taxi cab radio in 1937 and signed them to Decca Records. They had Patty as the lead soprano, Maxene as the 2nd soprano and LaVerne fulfilled the sound with a reverberating contralto or bass. The sisters became first the first million selling record for an all-female group when their first "big break" came in 1938 with "Bei Mir Bist du Schoen," a Yiddish jingle. The sisters even performed with other popular artists such as Ernest Tubbs, Bing Crosby, Les Paul, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Danny Kaye, Morton Downey, Carmen Miranda, Guy Lombardo. They also made 17 films such as "Follow the Boys," "In the Navy" and "Buck Privates," in which they usually depicted themselves. Monetary success followed the trio's fame. In 1954, Patty parted with the group to attempt a solo career. It only took a year before Maxene followed in her sister's steps. However, the severance was not extensive. The sisters reunited in 1956 and made a pledge to stay together. In 1966, LaVerne had to retire due to poor health. She died of cancer the following year.

With their jovial songs and buoyant moods, the three sisters gave optimism to an entire country trying to survive the hardships of war. It was that dedication that made them "America's Wartime Sweethearts."Please note these recordings are also available in the larger chronological Divas of Old Time Radio Collection.
