Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (June 9, 2018)

In 1969, in Britain, John Arthy was an amateur musician who placed a want ad for dance band music. A woman responded to the ad and sold him 2,000 arrangements of dance band music from the 1920s and 30s. The arrangement on the top of the pile was the "Home in Pasadena," by American song writer and composer Harry Warren. So Arthy named his new band the Pasadena Roof Orchestra, a wind band still in existence today, but with professional musicians—still playing music from the 1920s and 30s. Today's edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion features music performed by the Pasadena Roof Orchestra, especially music about moochers.
