Program Notes

The title of this march was selected by a vote of radio listeners; it was premiered by the Goldman Band on Sousa's birthday, November 6, 1932. Goldman dedicated the cheerful "la-la and whistle" march to a friend, Mabel Rosenthal. At that time there was little to cheer about in the United States since the county was in the midst of its worst depression, with banking operations at a standstill and many people standing ins soup lines. The Goldman Band did its share by presenting concerts to help New Yorkers forge their troubles -- at least for a time.
