Today, December 26th, is Chuck Cecil’s birthday. He will be 95 years old. His Swingin’ Years program was on the air from 1956 until July of last year, a phenomenal 60 years. He was on commercial radio, Armed Forces Radio, and finally public radio. His personal collection of records, his collection of radio broadcasts, his interviews of all the important figures of music 1936-1956 and before and after, are staggering. He kept my parents alive many years after they had gone. I miss him very much. I hope all is well and all the best Birthday wishes, Chuck. Let’s give the old Chuck Cecil Theme Music, The Mole, by Harry James, another spin.
