The Chesterfield Supper Club - March 2, 1945
Here’s another wartime musical program - “The Chesterfield Supper Club”, originally heard on NBC on March 2, 1945. This is the Armed Forces Radio Service version of the program where it was number 43 in the series.
Perry starts off the show with the new song, “I Should Care”. We also hear “Taking a Chance on Love”, “Gonna Build a Fence Around Texas”, and other songs. Perry Como is joined by the Satisfiers, Ted Steele and His Orchestra and there’s a routine by comedian Gary Mann. This appears to be a previously lost episode of the series.
The show was transferred direct from an original vinyl Armed Forces Radio Service transcription.
Again, our thanks to blog listener William Harris for his donation of the disc to the collection!
