Hello Listeners,
     We are now into our 19th volunteer year on WDCB. The show continues to be the only big band and easy listening radio show in the Chicagoland area. We play close to 30 songs on each program and feature the songs in back to back medleys. We  also identify the tunes instead of just playing them.
     New releases are always welcome and in recent weeks we have received an exciting new CD by Rob Leonard’s Blue Moon Big Band called All The Cats Join In. Of special interest is the band’s new powerful version of Glenn Miller’s “In The Mood.” The Ron Smolen Orchestra also has a new two CD set of recently recorded tunes. New CD’s are always appreciated for air play consideration.  No paper labels please on the disks.  We have stopped covering local events. We just do not have the equipment to do it right. Also this reminder, that the program is copyrighted and should not be sold for any purpose by others. On March 16, WDCB will be having it’s Spring Pledge Drive. We hope that listeners will call in a donation during the show. As always thanks very much for listening. Also thanks to Rockford’s Mike Williamson for the new introduction on part two of our program. Sweet Pepprika still opens the beginning of our show.
