There is more description on the reverse of the album. Victor Young, copyright by Leo Fiest, (collectors can check that during her lifetime Judy Garland always attributed "Over the Rainbow" to "Leo Fiest" and not to MGM which would have been Robbins.) The album clearly describes her broadcast in 1938 with the "original cast members of the Original Play" thus meaning the original Fred A. Stone-and I have his photo from his substitution in "You Can't take it with You" 1937. The others remaining alive were munchkins. This turns out to be JOSEPH TONER, recently accepted by the IMBD as the historical JOHN CHARLES THOMAS, not an easy feat. The essence of the original production were laid out pretty well, but the whole broadcast took an hour-It was repeated in 1950 after the conglomerate of Decca/Capitol, holdings of EMI and the international, worldwide, monopoly of Columbia was formed. However, due to the neo-nazi backlash, they had to give something to the input from Philco and other industrialists with the government looking the other way. (Ford Motors, General Electric, Phillips, Zieneth, Buckingham-they carried Frank DeVol, and so did Verve-General Motors, Gulf and Western Electric, and well, who else became part of CBS/Time-Life-MGM-Warner?)

The national Archives does not have the original Blue Seal discs, which will soon be rectified.

Who was the real author? It was not Ken Darby and the Kings Men who suddenly went to boy soprano mode.

More is made of Pinocchio, where Cliff Edwards, whom I have read was once a fairly famous fellow, has much support from his backup singers to win the best song for "When You Wish Upon a Star" His history is on the reverse side as well, and I will try to add photos of all for those interested. And if anyone had any doubt that Decca and Disney were the same company--no more doubt neccessay. Advertised are Fred Waring and the Pnnsylvanians "A Visit to Disneyland" DL 8221 and "Music from Disneyland" DL8105
