Dick Tracy in B Flat

During War Time, a particularly star-studded radio broadcast of a Dick Tracy musical was performed on the February 15, 1945 episode of Command Performance for The Armed Forces Radio Service.

Dick Tracy in B-Flat (or For Goodness Sakes Isn’t He Ever Going to Marry Tess Trueheart?!) featured talent no less than Bing Crosby, Jimmy Durante, Judy Garland, Bob Hope, Dinah Shore, and Frank Sinatra, with an orchestra conducted by Meredith Wilson of The Music Man fame! Though played for laughs rather than action or drama, the musical is filled with original songs and parodies of many other popular tunes of the day.
