His biggest hits, both with lyrics by Buddy Kaye, were "Till the End of Time" (based on Chopin's "Polonaise), recorded by Perry Como, Dick Haymes, Les Brown, Doris Day and others; and "Full Moon and Empty Arms" (based on Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto #2), recorded by Frank Sinatra, Robert Goulet and Sarah Vaughan, among others. Both songs were written in 1945. JOHNNIE BIAS (b. 1921) was the leader of a country and western band, Johnny Arizona and the Blue Prairie Boys, heard on major country stations in Nashville, Wheeling and other cities. ADELINE DeWALT REYNOLDS (1862-1961) survived the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, raised four children after the death of her husband (1905), entered the University of California at age 64, graduated 6 years later, and made her first film in 1940, at age 78! She then appeared regularly in films, and then on TV, for two decades. She played, of course, grandmotherly types, in movies like Come Live With Me, Son of Dracula and Going My Way, and in TV series like Have Gun, Will Travel and Peter Gunn. DOYE O'DELL (1912-2001) played fiddle and guitar on radio stations in the Southwest before joining the Texas Cowboys, a country vaudeville show. During World War II he had an NBC radio show, Doye O'Dell and the Radio Rangers. He had some country hits in the early 1950s, including two songs later popularized by Elvis Presley: "Old Shep" and "Blue Christmas". His "Diesel Smoke, Dangerous Curves" foreshadowed the trucker music of later decades. He was seen in several Western films, and on such TV series as Maverick and Cheyenne. He won two Emmys for a children's program, Country Thrills. George Sanders was a radio/TV disc jockey turned interview host, who collected autographs from guests on his show. Toned. Left edge torn from binding. Otherwise, fine condition.
