"The Glenn Miller Story," starring Jimmy Stewart and June Allyson was on the Turner Classic Movie channel. Although my father liked to listen to Artie Shaw, Ray Coniff, and Jackie Gleason, Glenn Miller was always his favorite.
Because of his love for Miller's music, every time the movie was on TV he would watch it. And last night I was up past midnight doing the same thing. I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree after all.
I've included a video of a Miller classic (my Dad's favorite) to get you in the mood and also a cover of the same tune by one of my favorite bands (BSO).
