KAY KYSER
A signed letter from the popular bandleader saying that he unfortunately isn't able to help any amateur musicians due to the limitations of his program, but that a reputable publisher would be of assistance
Typed letter signed: "Kay Kyser", in black ink, 7¼x10½. In part: "Dear Mrs Thomas: Thank you for your nice letter - I only wish there was some way I could help amateur song writers - but unfortunately there isn't - As far as our program is concerned, we are not permitted to play anything but "Your Hit Parade" numbers - The best advice I can give you is that you submit your songs to some reputable publisher". Bandleader Kay Kyser (1906-1985), who couldn't read a note of music, was one of the most popular bandleaders and music personalities in America from 1933 until the end of the 1940s. Kyser and his band became nationally known following a series of radio broadcasts from the Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica. These shows, which featured his trademark comedy (vocalists singing the titles of songs, interrupting a chorus for the band's theme, "Thinking of You") and an engagement at the Blackhawk Restaurant in Chicago, Kyser a star. His many hits included "The White Cliffs of Dover" and "Old Buttermilk Sky". Kyser's zany radio show, Kay Kyser's Kollege of Musical Knowledge, ran for more than 15 years and was so popular that RKO signed him up for a series of films, starting with That's Right, You're Wrong. During WWII, Kyser and his band appeared at over 500 military installations in USO shows. After his radio show was cancelled in 1949, Kyser had difficulty making a transition to television, and he retired in 1950. Normal mailing folds. Light surface creases. Corners slightly worn and creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
