The legendary Glenn Miler was one of the most successful of all dance band leaders back in the Swing Era of the 1930's and '40's. In 1938, Miller organized a band that enjoyed a matchless string of hit records. The constant impact of radio broadcasts and the drawing power at theatres, hotels, and dance pavilions, built and maintained the momentum of the band's popularity. In 1942, Miller joined the Army where he organized and led the famous Glenn Miller Army Air Force Band where he traveled the world performing for servicemen in World War 2.
