June 1, 1937 [note that the dates on the slides in the video are incorrect, my apologies!] Judy Garland performed “Dinah” on the “Jack Oakie's College” radio show, broadcast by CBS Radio.This is the only known recording of Judy singing song in full. Judy had previously recorded part of the song on March 29, 1935, when she made several test records for the Decca Records label. “Dinah” was part of a medley that also included “On The GoodShip Lollipop” and “The Object Of My Affection.” Get details about the recordings of Judy’s radio appearances atThe Judy Garland Online Discography:www.TheJudyRoom.com/misc.html A huge shout out of thanks to Michael Feinstein for bringing this perfromance to the public in 2016.
Judy performs another one of her signature tunes for the first time in public. Broadcast on ''The Shell Chateau Hour'' with Wallace Beery on 16 November, 1935. On the night of the show's broadcast, Judy discovered that her father (Frank Gumm) was seriously ill in hospital with spinal meningitis, but had no choice but to go on and perform - her performance has an added intensity. Her father died the next morning and Judy never saw him alive again. However, a radio was placed next to his bed so he could hear the broadcast, and hear 'Baby' sing one last time.
Judy Garland sang many songs about 'Smiles'. This is perhaps the most rare ... it is not the song you may be thinking of. ... Performed on 'Jack Oakie's College' radio program, April 6, 1937. Judy was 15 years old. Included with this rare audio are seldom seen photos. 'Smiles' to all who Love Judy. Words by J. Will Callahan, music by Lee S. Roberts, 1917. If you just stop to think, here's a lesson for you What a word or a smile can convey With a word you can make someone happy or blue With a smile you can make them sad or gay So be careful what you say And be careful how you smile It's so easy for us to make Someone's life worthwhile There are smiles, that make us happy There are smiles, that make us blue There are smiles, that steal away the teardrops Like...
Judy Garland sang Liza (All the Clouds'll Roll Away) for Bing Crosby's radio show "Philco Radio Time" in November 12th, 1946. As Crosby taped his programmes, the show was aired two weeks later in November 27th. It is said that Judy so loved this song that she named her daughter Liza (Minnelli). She sang the song on the show as a lullaby to her eight months old daughter and used rarely heard introduction and alternative lyrics.
A classic show from the long-running radio series.
A recently reunited terrific twosome perform a song from their ''new picture'' for the first time on radio. Performed live on the Lux Radio Theater's production of 'Merton of the Movies', broadcast on 11 November, 1941. I was so sad to hear about the passing of Mickey Rooney this week. In all of his 93 years, Mickey proved himself to be a true showman, a great comedian and a living legend in his time. His chemistry with Judy was simply electric and I will forever love their collaborations together! The world has lost not just a Hollywood legend, but a pal and a best friend. I will miss him so much. R.I.P. Mickey Rooney (1920 - 2014)
