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.
