GERMAN GLENN MILLER

This description of the Glenn Miller German broadcasts is from An Overview, from Glenn Miller Declassified” by Dennis M. Spragg © 2017, Potomac Books, University of Nebraska Press:

“A new venture in psychological warfare was the appearance of leading American entertainers and bands on Music for the Wehrmacht (Musik für die Wehrmacht), (over ABSIE, the American Broadcasting Station in Europe, based in London) for which William Klein wrote German-American continuity.

DER BINGLE

During September 1944 Bing Crosby and Dinah Shore recorded programs and standby (reserve) recordings during their tours of England and the Continent. The American Band of the Allied Expeditionary Forces (ABAEF) pianist Pvt. Jack Rusin accompanied Crosby, who was nicknamed “Der Bingle” by German troops listening to Music for the Wehrmacht. Irene Manning and Morton Downey followed them. Others appearing in the series during the latter third of 1944 were Marlene Dietrich, M1C Sam Donahue and the U. S. Navy Dance Band of the Allied Liberation Forces and even Spike Jones and his City Slickers.

NEW ZEALAND

Musical projection of America was furthered notably by the appearance on Music for the Wehrmacht of musical programs with Maj. Glenn Miller and the ABAEF in a series of weekly broadcasts with German continuity. This series instantly became a highlight of the ABSIE schedule and received significantly favorable comment. Interesting evidence of the global audience for Music For The Wehrmacht was received when a listener from New Zealand reported in detail about one of the Glenn Miller broadcasts.

DEATH THREATS

A female announcer identified as Ilse Weinberger hosted many of the Music for the Wehrmacht programs. In OWI photographs, Gloria Wagner is the announcer seen with Glenn Miller and others recording programs in this series. In addition to full-time announcer Wagner (who hosted other
programs) the ABSIE German Desk had two other staff members handle female announcing duties using the “Ilse” pseudonym. Among ABSIE’s well-known German voices was Gottfried “Golo” Mann, son of Thomas Mann and the reporter mentioned in these scripts. All of the ABSIE staff were American citizens and included SHAEF military and OWI civilian personnel. Wagner, Mann, ABSIE contributor Marlene Dietrich and other ABSIE on-air personnel were subject to enemy death threats.

WEHRMACHT MUSIK

Six complete episodes of Music for the Wehrmacht were recorded and broadcast by the ABAEF. Program 7 was scheduled for broadcast December 20, 1944 but only the start of the episode was recorded. Any additionally planned programs or repeats were cancelled following the announcement of Miller’s disappearance December 24, 1944.

Sy Oliver – King Swing Arranger – Phantom Dancer 10 September 2019


SWING ARRANGER

This week’s Greg Poppleton Phantom Dancer features a set of 1940s swing bands from the Spotlight Bands series, a set of 1940s Nat King Cole and a set of the Dorsey Brothers on air, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey with a feature by their uptempo arranger, the influential musician and composer, Sy Oliver.

ONLINE

The Phantom Dancer will be online right after the 6 August 107.3 2SER Sydney live mix at 2ser.com.
Hear the show live every Tuesday 12:04-2pm and Saturday 5 – 5:55pm on 107.3 2SER Sydney

The last hour is all vinyl.

Sy Oliver

OLIVER

Sy Oliver was a byword for swing in the 1940s. His musicianship skyrocketed the careers of big band leaders Jimmie Lunceford and Tommy Dorsey, both of whom you hear on this week’s Phantom Dancer. From wiki,

“Sy Oliver was born in Battle Creek, Michigan. His mother was a piano teacher and his father was a multi-instrumentalist who made a name for himself demonstrating saxophones at a time that instrument was little used outside of marching bands.

Oliver left home at 17 to play with Zack Whyte and his Chocolate Beau Brummels and later with Alphonse Trent. He sang and played trumpet with these bands, becoming known for his “growling” horn playing. He also began arranging with them.

He continued singing for the next 17 years, making many recordings when he was with Jimmie Lunceford and with his own band. With Lunceford, from 1934 to 1937, he recorded more than two dozen vocals. From 1949 to 1951, he recorded more than a dozen with his own band. With Tommy Dorsey, he only recorded two vocals, both in 1941 with Jo Stafford, on his own compositions “Yes Indeed” and “Swingin’ on Nothin'”.

Oliver arranged and conducted many songs for Ella Fitzgerald from her Decca years. As a composer, one of his most famous songs was “T’ain’t What You Do (It’s the Way That You Do It)”, which he co-wrote with Trummy Young.

 

Sy Oliver

LUNCEFORD

In 1933, Oliver joined Jimmie Lunceford’s band as a trumpet player, arranger and songwriter. He contributed many hit arrangements for the band, including “My Blue Heaven” and “Ain’t She Sweet”, as well as his original composition “For Dancers Only” which in time became the band’s theme song. He was co-arranger with pianist Ed Wilson; Oliver primarily taking the up-tempo numbers, Wilcox the ballads. Oliver’s arrangements “were a dashing parade of innovation that rivaled Ellington’s for consistency and originality.”

DORSEY

In 1939, when band leader Tommy Dorsey decided he wanted a swing band, his first step was to hire Oliver as an arranger away from Lunceford for $5,000 more a year. Oliver then became one of the first African Americans with a prominent role in a white band when he joined Tommy Dorsey. (Fletcher Henderson, another African American composer/arranger, had joined the Benny Goodman orchestra as the arranger some years earlier.) He led the transition of the Dorsey band from Dixieland to modern big band. His joining was instrumental in Dorsey luring several major jazz players, including Buddy Rich to his band.

With Dorsey, Oliver continued sharing arranging duties with another arranger, Axel Stordahl, Oliver doing up tempo tunes, Stordahl ballads. As James Kaplan puts it, “Tommy Dorsey’s band got a rocket boost in 1939 when Dorsey stole Lunceford’s great arranger Sy Oliver.”

His arrangement of “On the Sunny Side of the Street” was a big hit for Dorsey in 1946, as were his compositions “Yes, Indeed!” (a gospel-jazz tune that was later recorded by Ray Charles), “Opus One” (originally titled as “Opus No. 1”, but changed to suit the lyric that was added later), “The Minor Is Muggin'”, and “Well, Git It”.

Here’s a 1947 Downbeat review of the Sy Oliver band that you’ll hear from a live 1946 broadcast on this week’s Phantom Dancer…

 

Sy Oliver

APRES DORSEY

Oliver left Dorsey after seven years, in 1946, and began working as a freelance arranger and as music director for Decca Records.

One of his more successful efforts as an arranger was the Frank Sinatra album I Remember Tommy, a combined tribute to their former boss.

June 26, 1950, Sy Oliver and his Orchestra recorded the first American version of C’est si bon (Henri Betti, André Hornez, Jerry Seelen) and La Vie en rose (Louiguy, Édith Piaf, Mack David) for Louis Armstrong.

In 1974 he began a nightly gig with a small band at the Rainbow Room in New York. He continued that gig until 1984, with occasion time off to make festival or other dates, including at the Roseland Ballroom in New York. He retired in 1984.

Oliver died in New York City at the age of 77.

Your Phantom Dancer Video of the Week this week is a 1936 Vitaphone short of Jimmie Lunceford and his Orchestra with trumpet and arrangements by Sy Oliver

Paper Magnetic Tape for Tape Recorders – Phantom Dancer 30 July 2019


STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCE

This week’s Greg Poppleton Phantom Dancer feature has been sent to The Phantom Dancer by Matt who lives in the USA. It’s a WBBM CBS Chicago aircheck of the Woody Herman Orchestra broadcasting from the Palladium Ballroom in Hollywood. Matt has transferred it from the original brittle paper reel-to-reel tape.

The aircheck includes a bop inspired swinger I’ve never heard before called ‘Non-Alcoholic’.

I had thought audio tape had always been ‘plastic’. So this paper tape Matt sent is a revelation to me. I found some information about paper audio tape on Wiki which I’ve edited into a few tantalising paragraphs below…

Thank you, Matt!

This week’s Phantom Dancer will be online right after the 30 July 107.3 2SER Sydney live mix at 2ser.com.

PAPER RECORDING TAPE

Wax

The earliest known audio tape recorder was a non-magnetic, non-electric version invented by Alexander Graham Bell’s Volta Laboratory and patented in 1886. It employed a 3⁄16-inch-wide (4.8 mm) strip of wax-covered paper that was coated by dipping it in a solution of beeswax and paraffin and then had one side scraped clean, with the other side allowed to harden. It never went into commercial production largely due to the poor sound quality of the tape.

Photoelectric

In 1932, after six years of developmental work, Detroit radio engineer, Merle Dunstan, created a tape recorder that used chemically treated paper tape. During the recording process, the tape moved through a pair of electrodes which immediately imprinted the modulated sound signals as visible black stripes into the paper tape’s surface. The sound track could be immediately replayed from the same recorder unit, which also contained photoelectric sensors, somewhat similar to the various sound-on-film technologies of the era.

Iron Oxide

Magnetic tape recording as we know it today was developed in Germany during the 1930s at BASF and AEG in cooperation with the state radio RRG. This was based on Fritz Pfleumer’s 1928 invention of paper tape with oxide powder lacquered to it. The first practical tape recorder from AEG was the Magnetophon K1, demonstrated in Germany in 1935. Eduard Schüller of AEG built the recorders and developed a ring-shaped recording and playback head. It replaced the needle-shaped head which tended to shred the tape. Friedrich Matthias of IG Farben/BASF developed the recording tape, including the oxide, the binder, and the backing material. Walter Weber, working for Hans Joachim von Braunmühl at the RRG, discovered the AC biasing technique, which radically improved sound quality.

German WW2 Tape Recorder

End of Paper Tape

In 1938, S.J. Begun left Germany and joined the Brush Development Company in the United States, where work on magnetic tape recorders continued. This work attracted little attention until the late 1940s when the company released the very first consumer tape recorder in 1946: the Soundmirror BK 401.

Tapes were initially made of paper coated with magnetite powder. In 1947/48 Minnesota Mining & Manufacturing Company (3M) replaced the paper backing with plastic or polyester and coated it first with black oxide, and later, to improve overall sound quality, red iron oxide.

VIDEO

This week’s Phantom Dancer video of the week is from the late 1940s, an unidentified woman reading to paper tape. Enjoy her story!

Frances Langford – A Tonsillectomy Created A Career – Phantom Dancer 23 July 2019


FROM OPERA TO SWING

This week’s Greg Poppleton Phantom Dancer feature artist is Frances Langford. She trained as an opera singer. Then a tonsillectomy changed her soprano to contralto, so she changed musical styles from opera to swing.

Check out this week’s Phantom Dancer play list of swing and jazz mixed from live 1920s-60s radio below.

This week’s Phantom Dancer will be online right after the 23 July 107.3 2SER Sydney live mix at 2ser.com.

FRANCES ON RADIO

Frances Langford was discovered in 1930 singing at a local dance by a merchant who put her on local radio to sing about his wares.

The next year she did a brief stint in the Broadway musical ‘Here Goes the Bride’. She then went to Hollywood to start a movie career, appearing on Louella Parsons’ radio show ‘Hollywood Hotel’.

Rudy Vallee heard her singing on the show and invited her to become a regular on his radio show. From 1935 to 1938 she was also a regular performer on Dick Powell’s radio show. From 1946 to 1951, she performed with Don Ameche in the role, Blanche, on The Bickersons radio series.

FRANCES IN FILMS

She introduced what became her theme song, ‘I’m in the Mood for Love’, in the 1935 film ‘Every Night at Eight’, which you can see in the Video of the Week below.

She appeared frequently on the silver screen in such films as ‘Broadway Melody of 1936’ in which she sang ‘Broadway Rhythm’ and ‘You Are My Lucky Star’, ‘Born to Dance’ (1936), ‘Too Many Girls’ (1940) and ‘Yankee Doodle Dandy’ (1942) with James Cagney, in which she sung ‘Over There’.

WWII

Langford was a regular singer on Bob Hope’s ‘Pepsodent Show’ when he and the cast held his first military entertainment program at March Field in Riverside, California in 1941. The show was so positive, he continued broadcasting from training bases around the USA and asked Langford to join him. During World War II, she joined Hope, Jerry Colonna, guitarist Tony Romano and other performers on USO tours entertaining thousands of GIs in Europe, North Africa and the South Pacific.

Her association with Hope continued up till 1989 when she joined him for a USO tour to entertain troops in the Persian Gulf.

During the war, Langford wrote the weekly ‘Purple Heart Diary’ column for Hearst Newspapers, in which she described her visits to military hospitals to entertain wounded soldiers. She used the weekly column as a means of allowing the recovering troops to voice their complaints, and to ask for public support to make sure that wounded troops received all the supplies and comforts they needed.

TV

Frances worked for several years in the late 1940s on ‘The Spike Jones Show’ and starred in a short-lived DuMont variety show ‘Star Time’ (1950).

She teamed with Don Ameche for the ABC television program, ‘The Frances Langford – Don Ameche Show’ (1951), a spin-off of their successful radio series ‘The Bickersons’ in which the duo played a feuding married couple.

Langford was also the host of the NBC musical variety program ‘Frances Langford Presents’ (1959), which lasted one season, as did her ‘The Frances Langford Show’ (1960). Another notable appearance was in ‘The Honeymooners’ lost episode ‘Christmas Party. which first aired December 19, 1953.

VIDEO

This week’s Phantom Dancer video of the week is from 1935 – Frances Langford singing the song that became her theme tune, ‘I’m In The Mood For Love’. Wasn’t George Raft a cad!
