Taking the music back a little further today to the 1940’s and World War II.   The Andrews Sisters were actual sisters and the world’s most popular female singing group of the time. One source lists 113 singles chart entries by the sisters between 1938-1951 when they were at the height of their careers.  They were part of an extensive USO tour to entertain the troops in Europe, but they also entertained around the U.S. on bases and in hospitals, usually wearing military type uniforms.    Their upbeat songs made them the darlings of their day.  Ironically, in the 1950’s they tried to change their sound, but  were up against acts like Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry and the public preferred to hear the sister’s old hits.  Enjoy “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B”!
