Music Director
28 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recall that the music director of Your Hit Parade was John Scott Trotter, who I believe was the husband of one of the singers, Dorothy Collins. The sponsor was Lucky Strike. I think Russell Arms was replaced at one point and I believe Gisele Mackenzie had either a predecessor or successor. Dorothy Collins and Snooky Lanson were constants. The program was very entertaining (I was about 6 - 8 years old during most of its run)and there was all sorts of hoopla related to the main sponsor, Lucky Strike. I seem to remember a huge picture of the Lucky Strike, at least before the number one song, and the slogan "Lucky Strike Means Fine Tobacco, LSMFT." (Kids used to make fun of the slogan as "Loose straps mean floppy tits. The adman who wrote it could laugh all the way to the bank.)
