“In the Mood”

I keep hearing that marvelous song in the background of a KPBX promo while waiting for the bus in the morning.

Always reminds me of this NPR feature from 2000. Thought you might enjoy hearing it.

It's 15 minutes long, so you might want to check it out when you have some time. It's worth it.

Bing with Glenn Miller

According to the details provided by the site credited below, this picture is from August of 1944, a few months before the band leader disappeared in bad weather over the English Channel.

Of course, he couldn't have known. But Bing almost looks as if he's already worried about the gentleman who gave us “Moonlight Serenade” and “In the Mood.”
