1936 GEORGE OLSEN
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: VARIATIONS ON A THEME (EDITORIAL) YOU'RE TELLING US/ WE'RE TELLING YOU PARK CENTRAL GROVE WANTS BANDS THAT DRAW NEW GROUPS AFM TO FORM POLICE BOARD TO CHECK BOOKERS CHINA NEEDS AMERICAN BANDS HOW TO MAKE A MODERN CHORAL ARRANGEMENT PLAYING FIRST CHAIR CLARINET MAKING SPECIALS FROM STOCKS MUST HEAR RADIO IN GERMANY SAYS MILDRED HUNT DANCE BAND REVIEWS - DICK STABILE, LEROY ANDERSON, TOMMY "RED" TOMPKINS, JOE RINES "YOU CAN'T PULL THE WOOL" Special Arrangement by BOB MILLER COURSE IN MODERN HARMONY PICK-UPS/ROASTS & TOASTS TUNES IN DEMAND ON THE AIR WORDS WITHOUT MUSIC RADIO REVIEWS RADIO RAIDS DISCussions METRONOME NOMINATES EDDIE MILLER FOR MUSICIANS' HALL OF FAME ENGLISH NEWS WEST COAST AREA NEWS- Chicago, Pittsburgh, Atlantic City, Washington, Clelveland, Maine, Baltimore, Wilwaukee, Philadelphia, Wilmington, Jacksonville, Richmond, His First Try a Flop, But Harry Lindeman Lived It Down Modern Electric Guitar Here to Stay Saxophone Questions Guitar Questions Brass Instruments Accordiana Arranging Questions Tooting a Few Horns Publisher's Notes and more
PHOTOS include: Lucille Beckwith ; Frank Chase ; Jimmy Joy ; Mildred Hunt ; Dick Stabile ; Eddie Miller ; Harry Lindeman ; Anthony Rocco ; Eddie Shannon & Rudy Vallee ; George Bundy & family, and others.There might even be more musicians pictured in the advertisments than there in the articles, plugging products like Martin Band Instruments, Buescher Instruments, Conn Band Instruments, King Cornet, Excelsior Accordions, Selmer Trumpets, Leedy Drums, Epiphone Guitars, and others. Speaking of Epiphone Guitars, there is an ad for Epiphone's "Electar ," one of the first lines of guitars intended to be used with electronic amplification, used by such Jazz greats as Charlie Christian. As I said earlier, Metronome magazines from around this time are scarce, even rare . You better believe there will be some competition for it too, so don't get caught "just looking". Magazine is 9 1/2" x 12 1/2" with some expected spine wear and reading wear, a few marks on the cover but complete and intact and still in Very Good condition.
