St. Patrick's Day

For the past couple of years, on St. Patrick's Day, I have posted a link to part of a performance, by my mother, on the television show Your Hit Parade.  I am posting it again today.

The broadcast--which took place live, on NBC--aired on March 15, 1952.  My mother sang "It's a Great Day For the Irish," and was joined, in the performance, by the Hit Paraders, the TV show's terrific vocal chorus.  The show's "Lucky Strike Orchestra" was led by the great Raymond Scott.,_NBC-TV,_1952.wav

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
