Inspired by the book “Star Spangled Radio” by Ed Kirby and Jack Harris that honored the radio broadcasting achievements of the Armed Forces during World War II, Dennis joins Rick Crandall of KEZW, Cruisin’ 1430, Denver, for a widely acclaimed weekly presentation of original popular music and jazz broadcasts from the premier Glenn Miller Archive collections, using the finest audio quality available.  Dennis shares interesting and historic insights about a very special era in American musical history and the series has become arguably the most entertaining big band program available in the world.
