We continue Glenn Miller month in celebration of what would have been his 120th birthday on March 1.

My dad was obviously a big Glenn Miller fan or we wouldn’t have been able to do this month-long celebration of his music. He owned 12 33 ⅓ RPM Vinyl records of Glenn Miller performing his music, later conductors of the Miller band, and other band leaders recording Glenn’s music. My dad owned even more Miller music on the original 78 RPM Shellac records.

Now, if you are a follower of this show, you’ll also know my dad was a really big Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass fan. He owned 12 records of the TJB.

In this episode we bring them together with the Buddy DeFranco led Glenn Miller band from the 1960s. Sort of an early mashup.

So get ready to hear one popular band play music from another popular band in Volume 168: Miller Band Translates TJB.
