When I was a kid, THE PIED PIPER OF HAMELIN was in syndication and aired frequently on an independent local station in L.A. Mom would have my little sister and me watch it because it was good for kids and it was an introduction to some classical music. THE WIZARD OF OZ this show is not. At times, it has a better than average community theater look. Keep in mind this is a production from the early days of TV. But it sure is fun to see Claude Rains do a spirited song and dance. What a fabulous surprise. I found THE PIED PIPER OF HAMELIN online.
As for late Kay Starr -- what a solid singer she was. My favorite recording of hers is one I play a lot every Christmas season. I totally dig "The Man With the Bag"! Here 'tis.
