Airs Saturday, August 15th at 6p and Sunday, August 16th at 3a on WVIA-TV

After its phenomenally popular “Big Band Years” program, TJL’s MY MUSIC series presents STARLIGHT BALLROOM, a return to the swing era for another glorious look back at the orchestras, band leaders and singers that ruled America’s radio waves, bringing joy and escape during the days when the country went to war and the era of victory that followed.

Ballrooms across the United States hosted the biggest bands as they travelled from city to city with dance numbers and beautiful ballads. These timeless sounds are enjoyed once again through long-unseen vintage film and television performances.
