While watching my new imaginary boyfriend* Christopher Eccleston in an episode of Dr. Who set during the Blitz, there was some Glenn Miller playing. Which led me to Wikipedia to learn that Glenn Miller is officially listed as missing in action (presumed dead) because his plane disappeared over the Channel in 1944 while on tour with his Army Air Force Band.
And I thought I liked Miller for “Chattanooga Choo Choo.” Dying while on tour to rally the troops in the war effort is another matter entirely.
*I’m sorry, Dimitri, I’m really enjoying your baritone and your t-shirts, but there’s such a thing as too much music. I’ll call you.
Hey, at least I’ve seen The Benny Goodman Story. 🙂
See, the problem with you dang kids is that you don’t see enough old movies: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Glenn_Miller_Story
You learn a lot from old movies… 🙂
I didn’t know that either. Wow. I have this really cheap CD of Glen Miller music and I LOVE it!
