My first boyfriend was a big fan. I was more into the later era where the vocalist (particularly Mel Torme) was the star, and the orchestra was secondary. I guess that relationship was doomed from the start?

Little known fact about Glenn Miller. He attended high school in Fort Morgan, CO. He was in the US orchestra and payed in Earl Wells band which traveled the county entertaining. According to the locals that experience fed his desire to have his own band. In 1919 he joined the HS football team which in 1920 won the Northern Colorado League Championship. The town of Fort Morgan has an Glenn Miller Museum and has a Glenn Miller celebration.
