It’s Spring and your NIGHT WATCHMAN has the privilege of wishing
you a wild, “wool-less,” and swingy season. Upstate the vintners
will be pressing the grape... down here in “Baghdad by the subway”
there will be much pressing... the tailors will be pressing that
Easter suit... but the big pressing job will be done by the record
companies so YOU’LL have music to swing to for Spring. As those
singing stars orbit around the WMCA turntable, I hope you’ll be
listening to your lovable NIGHT WATCHMAN -- 2 to 6 am -- 570kc.
