The Disc Jockey
31 January 2015 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Martin Block was one of the first disc jockeys in American broadcasting. He started out playing records while people waited for news flashes on the Lindbergh kidnapping and continued with his successful career until his death in 1961. In 1948 MGM tried him out with a series of musical shorts. This is the sixth and last of the series.

The songs offered are: Art Lund singing "Ma'amzelle" and "Sad Cowboy"; Les Brown's swing version of "The Blue Danube" and Tex Beneke's rendition of "Somebody Loves Me." It's a lively short subject, but it just didn't take.
