Glenn Miller Memorial with Gene Krupa
The first hour of the legendary, four-hour salute to the late Glenn Miller, held at the Paramount Theater in New York city on June 5, 1945 and hosted by Martin Block. This segment features the complete radio newscast of that day, formal introductions by the armed forces at the Paramount and guests such as Tex Beneke, Jo Stafford, Shep Fields and Charlie Spivak. Gene Krupa sits in with the Charlie Spivak big band for a version of Boogie that may stand as the earliest example of a true, extended drum solo by Gene.
