I believe that I've mentioned that I recently acquired at least 500 or 600 Reel-to-Reel tapes for free and a lot of them are Old Time Radio programs.

This week I was listening to a tape of several Red Skelton programs from 1952 and was surpised to hear that David Rose was playing the music for the shows.

So now, I'm curious if he did the music for other radio programs?  I only knew of him from trying to identify the artists of some Christmas songs that I taped off the radio back in the 1970's and didn't know the artist on some of the songs and someone pointed out that the one song was by David Rose and his Orchestra and I eventually was able to purchase his Christmas album.

Susan,

I've spoken about this on the board before. David Rose was Red Skelton's long-time musical director for both his radio and television programs.
He used to perform many of his great original compositions on Mr. Skelton's shows, including The Christmas Tree, Holiday for Strings, The Stripper and Calypso Melody.

Thanks Chip,

I didn't remember, but this past month has been a bad month for me.  I can't go into details, but my thinking has been off and I think I searched for David Rose, but subconciously didn't see the specifics.

I apologize for asking something that you've already mentioned before.  It was just surprising to me because I didn't realize that David Rose went back that far but now I know he did start much further back than I had thought.

I thank you again.

No problem Susan, I was just pointing out that I had talked about that on the board in the past. As for David Rose, his career goes back to the 1930s, but it really began in earnest in the early 1940s when he had his first big hit Holiday For Strings, which he recorded in 1942 and hit #2 on the charts in June of 1943. Years later, after he became Red Skelton's musical director, the song became the theme song for Mr. Skelton's TV variety show, The Red Skelton Hour, from 1951-1971. By the way, two of David Rose's previous wives were Martha Raye and Judy Garland. Posted below is the aforementioned hit song Holiday For Strings.

Thanks again Chip,

It's always interresting to find out something new about a particular artist. Such as him being married to Martha Raye and Judy Garland.  I knew about Judy Garland being married to Vincente Minelli and her third husband Sidney Luft.

It's sad that her marriage to David Rose only lasted about a year, then her second husband Vincente Minelli for about 6 years, then Sidney Luft from 1952 to 1965 and her fifth husband Mark Herron but that didn't even last a year.  Then her sixth and final husband Mickey Deans in 1969 from April until June 22, when she died in his bathroom from a drug overdose, supposedly after a fight they had and she locked herself in his bathroom.

Though she didn't show it in a lot of her performances, she really had a rough life, 5 broken marriages and the 6th. one about to break when she died.  Such a beautiful talent gone forever.  I remeber once scene in Cabaret, where Liza had a line about amounting to something as an actress and I was sure if I closed my eyes, it was Judy's voice I heard and not Liza's.

Sorry to have changed the topic from David Rose to Judy Garland.

I have seen a few of his other albums, but passed on them because they were just too scratched and the jackets were torn.  But I have heard a few of his songs on the radio even recently.  We have a radio station that changed their format not too long ago, and they play a lot of the music from the 1940's - 1960's and the occasional song from the 1970's, but they play a lot of "The Rat Pack" and their individual songs, Andy Williams, Henry Mancini, Percy Faith, and many many more.  But sometimes they don't mention the song or the artist, but I know I've heard it before.

Though I know a lot of albums, I don't have the extra knowledge that you have about when their career began, who they played with and so on, so again, it's nice to find out some new information about a particular artists.

Susan, I always remember seeing David Rose's name at the end of the "Little House on the Prairie" TV series.

Thanks Johnny,

I'm sure he composed several TV Themes, but wasn't aware of Little House On The Prairie.  I did watch the show once in awhile, but didn't pay attention to the credits.  I couldn't stand Nellie and her mother and it made me want to change the channel.  Then in later years Laura was teaching a little girl who could have been Nellie all over again.  So I really didn't watch that much.

Yes Susan, David Rose did indeed compose several television show themes. And the biggest one by far was his fantastic score for the great western TV series Bonanza -- one of my most favorite shows growing up in the '60s.
