In the absence of Ernie Whitman, a substitute announcer, carries the functions of emcee.
Count Basey is introduced, and starts right in with the Wood Choppers Ball. Count Basy calls his vocalist, Jimmy Rushing, to the mike to sing, Baby Won’t You Please Come Home.
Next, Teddy Wilson reads greetings from the mailbag before going into the B Flat Swing. Teddy Wilson continues with, Feeling Good.
Thelma Carpenter is on hand to dedicate a song, Do Nothing Til You Hear From Me. Earl Warren sings, Don’t Believe Everything You Dream.
Greetings are read from the mailbag, then Count Basey is back with, I Found a new Baby. Count Basey, and host say a few parting words.
I still can’t figure who the substitute host might be. He is alternately referred to as either Ralph, or Bob. Though he’s a white guy, and doesn’t quite have that jivey presence of good ol’ Ernie, he actually pulls off the slangy dialog fairly well.
