Petrillo Recording Ban of 1941-1943

by Fred

Definitely, radio has always broadcast some music from popular record, not to mention recorded commercials.

Cesar Petrillo was a powerful figure in Musician's Union activity, U.S. mid-1900s. One of the Bunny Berigan biography books (perhaps there is only one... library browsing recollection here) recounts a meeting in Petrillo's offices, when one of Berigan's big band efforts folded. A memorable description, it conjured the Union Boss.
