Sunrise Serenade: I Don't Want To Set The World On Fire (plus, Vera Lynn Special Tonight)

Today's Sunrise Serenade was "I Don't Want To Set The World On Fire" by Vera Lynn.  Enjoy the video from YouTube
The late Ms. Lynn was obviously on my mind for two reasons: 1) she passed away last Thursday at the age of 104; and 2) I'm doing a tribute show to her tonight, with one of her songs in every set.  Tune in to hear that wonderful voice in some great songs.
