Walter Damrosch
Music Review (1941- 45)

The title was really a gag...it harkened back to the famed music director, Walter Damrosch, who pioneered radio broadcasts of (live) classical music and originated Music Appreciation classical music concert shows on the radio. Damrosch worked for the network from '28-42, and said early on in his career, "My five years' experience in planning radio programs has shown me that the public seems to like what I give it and I give it only the best!"

Peggy LeeSo this show was the swing music equivalent of that concept...but with the hip idea that you could take a tune, even a classical melody, "and swing it." We have some wonderfully talented jazz musicians featured on the show, including the Les Paul Trio. Les Paul, of course, went on guitar greatness. The orchestra was "under the baton" of Frank De Vol, a stalwart of radio and popular music. Some really famous musical personalities, such as Peggy Lee, Martha Tilton, Margaret Whiting, Mel Torme, and a young Andre Previn. Excellent arrangers Billy May and Neil Hefti worked on the show as well.

Raymond ScottThe idea was to take some pop hits, some classical themes, and take them "on a flyer". And did we say swing 'em? "Little Boy Blue," Vulga Boatman," Black and Blue Danube," "Donkey Serenade", and " Parisian Market." You get the idea. If you're WWII vintage, you'll remember classical jazz styling by Tommy Dorsey, Claude Thornhill, Duke Ellington and Raymond Scott.

The thirty minute shows were played for laughs at times, but the music was always first-rate, and is as swinging and fresh as it was back in the War Years when it came on the scene. Nearly two dozen show are still with us, and we are lucky to have such great tunes to "depreciate."

For more jazz broadcasts, see also: Charlie and His Orchestra (Nazi Propganda), Date with the Duke, Eddie Condon Jazz Concert, Esquire Jazz Concert, Jubilee, Music Depreciation, Navy Swings, Live from Birdland, and New Orleans Jazz Band.
