The United States Navy Band recorded Remembering the Navy Hour in order to commemorate the 50th anniversary of WWII. Not only does the album feature the talent and diversity of the United States Navy Band, but also CBS News Correspondent Mike Wallace hosts the album, which is patterned after a very successful and popular Navy Hour radio program. When it left the airwaves in 1968, the Navy Hour had the distinction of being the longest running radio show in history. This collection includes a variety of musical styles suggestive of the World War II era. Four of the Navy Band's specialty groups- the Sea Chanters Chorus, Commodores Jazz ensemble, Country Current country-bluegrass group, and Topside Combo- offer pop, country, swing, jazz and Broadway selections to this eclectic collection. This recording includes many fantastic hits like "Wabash Cannonball", "I Found a New Baby" and "Victory at Sea". Remembering the Navy Hour is a nostalgic assortment of works that are sure to both delight and inspire.
