Jim Ameche 1964

Sometimes I miss "beautiful music", orchestral arrangements mostly of pop songs of the 1930s-1960s.  It was the rhythm of the grocery stores.  AFRTS had a history of playing it, going back to WWII.  Carrying the mantle in the 1960s was Jim Ameche.  Jim had been a big radio star in the "Golden Days of Radio" but his big success was being the first to nationally syndicate a DJ show. 

In 1964, we heard "The Best Sounds Around"
