By HAL THE Tin Pan Alley that used to be one of the big town's big streets is now but a ghostly avenue. There were times when the curh was lined with swanky imported autos. A car that cost less than ten thousand was shooed off the asphalt. Today's music springs from a half-hundred little offices scattered all over the Broadway belt. Why? Because of radio. Radio knocked a lot of music publishers into the red ink pot. if you believe the stories you hear on the sidewalks, ki the old days, a piece of sheet music would sell into the hundreds of thousands. Fortunes were made by men who put across a captivating tune. They say that radio has changed all that. Play a piece on the air night after night for six weeks and you can't sell another copy across a counter. Too much plugging ruins it. Just the same, song writers write on. Orchestras have to play something. We all must have something to put life into our aging feet. So the woods are full of songwriters. And the air is full of hot chas, hoops and highdee-hi's. Just to keep you informed about this cuckoo world of ROGERS rhyme and time, this» department will be Johnny-on-thespot with a lot of what's what and where about the boys and girls that you like best. AS a sample, 1*11 bet a pretzel you didn't know that * \ "Night and Day" is one of the best sellers of recent months. Or that "Willow Weep for Me" is an ace money maker. Other numbers that have been kicking the gong around are "Little Street." "Echo of the Valley," "Play. Fiddle, Play" and "A Boy and a (iirl Were Dancing." THE hey-hey high life of Manhattan has found a new baton-swinger in the person of little Sammy Robbins, band maestro of the McAlpin Grill. Sam. who is heard over the facilities of the NBC, has been called the "maestro of the midAtlantic." For several years past his sweet rhythm has held sway on the swank roof of the Hamilton Hotel in Bermuda. During this time, he became something of a legend. ( )ne story called him "Bermuda's little king." News and gossip about those who bring you the ether notes 35
