If you ask anyone under the age of forty to identify the singing groups of the 20th Century-The Mills Brothers, Boswell or Andrews Sisters, and you may toss in the Pied Pipers, Modernaires, Ink Spots or the King Sisters and the McGuire Sisters, you would undoubtedly earn a long, blank stare of wonderment. This book is their story. Each of these groups and many more carved out a musical career of great stature and popularity over many years, reaching back a few generations during what was know to all as the Big Band Era and Swing Era, at a time when the Great American Songbook was in its infancy, and has just settled down long enough to be defined. For those of you who were fortunate enough to have lived through a part of this era and had witnessed one or more of their performances on the stage, on film, radio and television, and for those of you who didn't, please stand by, you're ON THE AIR....this is their story as never told before in one book written by Richard Grudens, whom Kathryn Crosby, the wife of Bing Crosby describes as ;The Musical Historian of our time. Without him, the magic would be lost forever. We all owe him a debt that we can never repay.
