Music Program (1940-1942)

David Rose Conductor"From out of the west to you," California Melodies features British director and composer David Rose and singer Maxine Gray. David Rose is best known for his exotica, space age and cocktail hour recordings.His 1944 hit composition, "Holiday of Strings," went on to become the theme song for Red Skelton shows.

California Melodies proved to be a fantastic venue to showcase many of Rose's great compositions. Broadcast from Hollywood, this large orchestral program is easy on the ears and lifting to the heart.

For more music shows that are sure to please your ear, listen to Sammy Kaye Sunday Serenade, Enchanted Hour, Royal Hawaiian Hotel, Choose a Song Partner, Judy Garland or Lonesome Gal.

    Have been listening to all my oldies I bought off of you and I must say the clarity is excellent. I have never heard these oldies with such clear and scratch less sound. Thanks again, will be back, and keep up the good work!!

    This is a marvellous programme of music and if you are into nostalgia or love music of the 40s with wonderful vocalists I recommend that you buy the full of individual programmes and enjoy the music.
