We finish up a month of celebration for what would have been Glenn Miller’s 120th birthday March first. And we finish by getting back to the man himself.

We’re not ending this memorial month with just any album in my dad’s collection. I refer to it with the same name as a popular and influential Beatles record.

This album has always caught my eye, and a few times my toe as it has the largest cover in the collection and sticks out beyond all the others, and it is made of a near-wood material. It also has one of the best selections of Glenn Miller’s recordings. Some studio. Some from his live national radio broadcasts.

So get ready to hear the last two sides of this great compilation record set from the most famous big band conductor there was in Volume 170: Miller’s White Album Record 5.
