  • Does anyone know the name of the songs played on KPEN's Farewell To The Fox

    Hey there,

    found some audio files of the Farewell To The Fox Broadcast but unfortunately without the titles.

    Does anyone know those songs?



    There are 3 title in each audio file. The very first title is Coquette by Green, Lombardo and Kahn.

    Here's the whole archive:


    Thank you in advance

    Welcome to the Forum!

    The fox3.mp3 is a medley of tunes I've never heard before. That said, however, the recording of fox5.mp3 begins with (I believe) a song containing the topic or lyrics "Lazy River." I could be all off on that, but that's my guess. I know I've played it in our concert band.

    Way too many organs to list, but I do have 5 Allens:
    • MOS-2 Model 505-B / ADC-4300-DK / ADC-5400 / ADC-6000 (Symphony) / ADC-8000DKC
    • Lowrey Heritage (DSO-1)
    • 11 Pump Organs, 1 Pipe Organ & 7 Pianos

          That's right, it was from a Hoagy Carmichael medley of pieces. It's amazing how versatile his music was, and how many pieces he wrote that people don't realize he wrote (i.e. Heart and Soul).

          George Wright had a really neat Dixieland style arrangement for this piece. It was on his recording, "The Wright Touch."

          I recognized the last piece of the fox5 set, but can't remember the name. I think it was from an old Broadway musical--maybe late 40s or early 50s. Possibly the closing song for the whole troupe.

            What makes this thread interesting is that I'm sure people played music familiar at the time. It makes me wonder–will recordings made, say 50 years ago still be relevant 50 years from now to anyone but ethnomusicologists? Will anyone actually recognize the songs?

            Re: my comment above. Something makes me think it's a stylized version of "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered".

            Is it possible you mean it's from "Anchors Aweigh"?
