Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street
Several top stars, including Dinah Shore and Zero Mostel, made their debut into the world of entertainment through this weird and wonderful radio show. Other well known artistes who guested on the show included Earl Hines, Lena Horne, Jack and Charlie Teagarden, Harry James and many more.
Gene Hamilton was the host who usually made a grandiose job of introducing the various participants of this musical extravaganza.
It’s quite interesting to note that, whilst this show never attracted top line audience figures it was extremely well thought of by a large percentage of the listening population who were quite willing to stand up and be counted at the mere suggestion by the network that they were thinking of axing the show because of poor ratings.
