Harry James - Beyond The Sea

Charles Tennant's song La Mer is tied with Edith Piaf's La Vie En Rose for the (worldwide) best selling popular song in french history.  Some of this is due to the English translation and Harry James' wildly popular version here.  Marion Morgan's voice is liquid gold.

Hi. You may like radio station KASM, in rural Minnesota. They play this type of music at 8PM CDT, called KASM The Lounge. It is quite good: http://www.mykasm.com/

Also if you enjoy old country along with Cowboy music, May give KHIL a listen, from Willcox, AZ: https://adm.hjx.mybluehost.me/

Harry James was known as “Mr. Horn” and that had nothing to do with the trumpet. He once told an interviewer that if he saw a woman he was attracted to, he”d simply say, “Wanna Fuck?”. The interviewer responded that he must have gotten slapped a lot. He responded the, yes he did get slapped a lot but he also got fucked a lot.
