RADIO STARS September, 1937, when she joined Ted Straeter's chorus on the Kate Smith pro- gram. Baruch was announcer on that show. A photographer wanted a picture of a girl on a man's shoulder. He picked Andre and Bea. That started something. She had sung exactly four weeks with Straeter when she got a call from a new bandleader. He had a recording date at Victor the next day. Would she come and ask for Larry Clinton? He heard her sing for the first time when she made a record of True Confession with his orches- tra. He asked her to join his band and sing on a Thursday night NBC program comix-ting with her own show. It was a big gamble: Should she leave Straeter and Baruch and take a chance on an unknown? She took the chance. She didn't lose. She married Baruch in May. Today, Clinton is no longer an unknown. Neither is Bea Wain. ONCE OVER LIGHTLY According to the crystal ball, Morten Doivncy and Eddy Duchin will be an air team this coining radio season . . .

It had its premiere on Lincoln's Birth- day . . . Kay Kyscr stays at the Penn- sylvania Hotel's Madliattan Room this fall. Ginny Simms, Kay's vocalist, is an ex- school teacher . . . When Joan Edwards went on tour with Paul Whiteman, Mrs. Edzvards went along to take care of her daughter. Joanic is feeling swell — Mrs. Ed- wards lost so much weight, she's on a re- covery diet . . . Glenn Miller wrote a tunc called Sold American, burlesquing the chant of the tobacco auctioneer. Because the cigarette company docs a lot of radio advertising, CBS and NBC have banned the tunc. LARRY CLINTON SONG TITLE CONTEST WINNERS! First Prize—Membership in the RCA- Victor Record Society.
