W-G-N TO STAGE BOND DRIVE IN STATE ST. TODAY
A group of W-G-N headliners will appear at the treasury center, State and Madison sts., to put on a 7th war loan show at noon today. Part of the program will be recorded and broadcast over W-G-N from 7:15 to 7:30 tonight. Gene Filip of the W-G-N news staff, a veteran of 32 months' service in the Southwest Pacific, where he was wounded and awarded the silver star for conspicuous gallantry, will be interviewed by Philip Maxwell of the Chicago Tribune's staff. The broadcast portion will include music by Bob Trendler and the dance orchestra, with songs by Bruce Foote, baritone, and the Dinning sisters.
Other W-G-N participants will be Harry Sukman, pianist, who will play the "Warsaw Concerto"; Dick [Two Ton] Baker, Bill Anson, Forest Lewis, Angel Casey, Bill Evans, Angelo Raffaielli, June Baker, Patricia Dunlap, John Holbrook, and Lee Bennett.
The Dinning sisters have been adjudged "the most promising vocal trio of 1945" by Orchestra World, popular music periodical. They will receive a citation from the magazine at 9:30 tonight at W-G-N's Swing's the Thing broadcast. They sing also on the National Barn Dance and other local shows.
