The Museum of Broadcast Communications, based in Chicago, is a great
source of information on Radio and TV classics. Their website offers a vast
archive containing thousands of video and sound files which you can enjoy
right on your computer! We were thrilled to find that they have a full episode
of In Town Tonight available for viewing. It originally aired in 1957.

Pat &Jack entered the S.S. Norway's Talent Contest just to have a chance to play
and have some fun. This was the fateful and tragic last cruise for this magnificent
ship, as one of the boilers - No. 13! - exploded when they returned to port on May
25, 2003, killing and injuring many of the crew.
Charlie Bornemann, gifted trombone man who played with The Dukes of Dixieland,
gave Pat the title, and she wrote this song around it. For you fashionistas
watching, you'll probably note that she's wearing the same top she wore on the S.S.
Norway cruise - seven years before! Thrifty lady, or as Pat puts it, "I think I was
born without the 'shopping gene', since I hate buying clothes!"
