Exactly one year before my dad's birthday (he is 71 today), Glenn Miller and his band recorded Chattanooga Choo Choo. Let me tell you that I have been a Glenn Miller band since seeing The Glenn Miller Story when I was in high school. I love James Stewart and June Allyson, and I can't recall how many times I saw that film. Louis Armstrong is in it, too. Talk about a great film full of big band music. And it is an emotional film as well since Glenn Miller died so suddenly. Last I heard, they hadn't found the spot where the plane went down, but I think they have a pretty good estimate.
