Jubilee – All Soldiers Show. 431025 Ernie Whitman hosts the show from Arizona with a show by musicians who are all in the Army. Sort of a tallent show by and for the troops. The names may not be familiar, but the tallent is impressive. Since the names are unfamiliar, and Ernie struggled over a few, I may not have them right either, but… That’s the way I heared it!
First up is Swing Low by bandleader, Pvt McCoy. Pvt Harold Brown plays an arrangement of, Tea for Two.
Ernie tells a story through flashback, and dramatization about what happened the other day on the Army post, with players who are presumably local military men. A Private tries to explain himself when caught sleeping. He gives a slangy, jive version of the General Orders of a Sentry on duty. Especially funny if you’ve ever been a sentry, and are familiar with those long standing orders. There’s 11 of them altogether, but they just hit some highlights.
Ernie continues by introducing Jeanine, backed up by Pvt McCoy’s band. I presume that Jeanine is the name of the song, since no vocalist appears.
Sgt Lawrence Kwishanan, or something that sounds like that, is up next to sing in his baritone voice, Without a Song.
Ernie reminds listeners how to write in their requests. Then the comedy team of Privates Masio Anderson and Eugene Jackson. They do an impression of Amos and Andy, as well as poke fun at military life.
Pvt Alondo Roadson sings, Marie. Pvt Trepan Neely, or something that sounds like that, sings, Amapola.
Ernie wraps up with a few parting words, with a little help from Cpl Nicholas. .
