About this title

Synopsis:

From dust jacket notes: "Glen island Casino...'Chesterfield Time'...Sun Valley Serenade -- they all conjure up the magic name of Glenn Miller, and the memories come pouring out. This book is first: the only book devoted to Glenn Miller and his music -- I breathtaking detail. It traces the Miller band from its first scuffling days in the mid-30s through the triumphs of 1939-42 to the last show at the Central Theatre, Passaic, N.J., on September 27, 1942, when Miller, band and audience all broke down and cried. Ten days later, Miller joined the Army Air Force, thus ending the reign of the most popular orchestra of all time. Moonlight Serenade follows the band day by day, week in and week out. As a discography it is monumental, listing songs and personnel not only for Miller's recordings but for his broadcasts too. The book also follows the band in diary form back and forth across the land -- from record-smashing dates like the Michigan Theatre to disasters like the Ritz Ballroom in Bridgeport (receipts: #780). Extras: band poll results, 1938-1942; index of songs; index of musicians."
