The Andrews Sisters

The Big Band Years

 

This retrospective features the music that brought the country through WWII, turning back the clock to a time when swing musicians ruled the radio and night clubs, bringing musical escape to Americans during one of the most turbulent periods in the nation’s history. The program mixes live and rare footage of bands and vocalists from the 1930s and 40s. Peter Marshall (“Hollywood Squares”) hosts. Glenn Miller, Harry James, Benny Goodman, The Andrews Sisters and Cab Calloway are among the featured artists.
