Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

They use to mention the show, I think it was Lee Bros., during the loading presentation at CWM. Wasn't Harry's father, Everett James, the band director on the show? (Notice how sure I am of this information.)

Thank You for your comment, at least you are not ashamed to put your name even though you are unsure.

If you scroll down past this Polack program, You'll find another copy of this ad, in the comments under it is a pretty good biography of Harry Haag James.

Harry James was born on the Mighty Haag. A rather humble start for a guy who made it into MGM and Betty Grable's dressing room.
