In our first hour this week, Brian is featuring the vocal group, ‘The Modernaires’. They first found fame as the vocal group with Glenn Miller, and later went on to have success on their own. And in our second hour, we’ll continue our series on studio orchestra leaders of the 1940s and 50s.
This week it’s the turn of Paul Weston. He started out as an arranger for Tommy Dorsey in the late 1930s, then moved to Capitol as orchestra leader, and from 1950 to Columbia. The many artists for whom he provided the backing included his wife, Jo Stafford.
