COVER

42 pages

Back issues of Metronome magazine from this time aren't like the later ones in the late 1930s and 1940s, although they had many of the same features, columns, etc. For one thing, the pictorial content of the older issues like this is a lot less. For another, the tone of the content, and article title "lingo" is more subdued. Still, older Metronome magazines like this one are in high demand for one simple reason- they are very scarce!

While I'm not going to list everything in the magazine, I can give you some highlights:
