    DECEMBER 15, 2014 4:00 AM Remembering Glenn Miller Big-band giant, down-to-earth guy, devoted patriot — and he might have some new albums on the way. By Spencer CaseOn the stormy day of December 15, 1944, a military plane transporting big-band superstar Major Glenn Miller to Paris for a Christmas broadcast disappeared over the English Channel. It’s worth taking a moment, on the 70th anniversary of that event, to consider whom America lost. What Miller accomplished in his 40-year lifetime is astonishing. During the 1930s, Miller was among a handful of innovators, along with Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman, who brought...

    Bands Must Have At Least One Original Member To Use Name (CBS) TALLAHASSEE -- Gov. Charlie Crist signed legislation Friday that makes it a misdemeanor for people to take the stage using the name of a band if they're not really the band who made the name famous, making it illegal in Florida to fake your way to fame by using another band’s name. The new law prohibits people or groups from advertising or holding a live performance using a "false, deceptive, or misleading statement of an affiliation, connection, or association between a performing group and a recording group."...

    Clay City native and Bloomington resident Clarence B. Wolfe says in a new book that he accidentally took part in the death of 1940s band leader Glenn Miller during World War II. In “I Kept My Word,” the 82-year-old Wolfe says he calculated the computer that told anti-aircraft guns at Folkestone, England, where to aim to bring down the small plane in which Miller was flying. Wolfe’s commanding officer gave orders to shoot after the plane did not respond to requests for identification, Wolfe recounts. Wolfe says he warned against firing because a low-flying small plane was unlikely to be...
