SPECIAL Sunrise Serenade: Stand By For Further Announcements

Today's Sunrise Serenade is special because it was not unconscious.  It was quite deliberate.  This morning's selection is "Stand By For Further Announcements (And More Good News)" by Lionel Hampton and His Orchestra.  Click on the song title to listen courtesy of Jazz On Line.

The SSS blog will be temporarily reducing (but not stopping) production for a brief period.  Listen to the last verse of today's song for a clue, watch this space and stand by for further announcements (and more good news).
