A-Z Music Challenge Day 13-M

M--Glenn Miller.  I remember  watching The Glenn Miller Story with James Stewart and June Allyson.  I loved  that film.  I understand it took quite a few  liberties with his  life story, but the main idea was there.  Now I tend to cry at the end of the film. It is  so good!

My favorite Glenn Miller song?  "Pennsylvania 6-5000."  It really was the phone number that was important to Glenn Miller  and his wife when they were dating/engaged.  It  was a real phone number, so  that's kind of cool.

By the way, this is a really cool video!  It is the real orchestra but after Miller's death.
