This entry in the "Memories From Melody Lane" series focuses on older songs that are now standards in American music. They range from "The Man on the Flying Trapeze", first published in the late 1860s, to "Come Josephine In My Flying Machine", popularized in 1910. After a song is initially performed by The Melody Makers (in appropriate costumes), the audience is invited to sing along while cards with the song's lyrics are shown on the screen. Written by
