As usual, Kind Sir, I missed your stream of this program, but I must comment on the placement of the delightful Crosby "My Kinda Love", followed by Vallee's "Thank Heaven For You" {now that sucked all the testosterone out of the room right there}, to be followed by Louis Prima...this could lead one's vintage musical head spinning much faster than a 78 rpm record....

As always, a very entertaining effort on your part!
