Happy St. Patrick's Day

I've posted the following on previous occasions, the last time being in 2015.  It is a brief excerpt of an audio recording (a recording I like a great deal) of a live performance on the television show Your Hit Parade, on NBC. It is from the March 15, 1952 telecast of the Hit Parade, two days before St. Patrick's Day.

The audio excerpt is of my mother, Sue Bennett, singing "Great Day for the Irish," accompanied by the program's choral group, the Hit Paraders.  The show's "Lucky Strike Orchestra" was led by Raymond Scott.
