Breakfast with Music was the last television show my mother was affiliated with, during her New York career. In January of 1953, my parents left New York for the Boston area.

After one of the Breakfast with Music telecasts, in 1952, my mother joined Milton DeLugg and the legendary composer and lyricist Frank Loesser, DeLugg's good friend (DeLugg and Loesser were also periodic songwriting partners) in a recording session; Loesser wanted to put on tape some demonstration recordings of his songs. Singer Stubby Kaye, who was starring on Broadway, at the time, in Guys and Dolls (the songs for which were written by Loesser; the play had had its debut in 1950) was also at the recording session.
