A Forgotten Star

Record #:
The big band leader who found fame in Hollywood and New York faded into obscurity once he returned to his home state. Kay Kyser, at the height of his fame during the Great Depression and World War II, scored 35 top ten hits, despite not being able to read sheet music or play an instrument. He earned fame by the zaniness and sense of humor displayed during his band performances.
