9824. Cavalcade Of Music. September 24, 1940. Sustaining. A program by ASCAP at the Golden Gate International Exposition, San Francisco. Possibly not a broadcast, the program featured ASCAP composers playing their very famous songs. ASCAP, at this time, was in a dispute with radio broadcasters about royalty payments, leading eventually to the formation of BMI (also in 1940). Dr. Howard Hanson conducts his own Third Symphony. Richard Hageman conducts the introduction and "Carnival" music to his opera, "Caponsacchi." Charles Wakefield Cadman performs his composition, "Dark Dancers Of The Mardi Gras." William Grant Still conducts, "Entree des Portiers" from his ballet, "La Quiablesse" and the 2nd and 3rd movements of his "Symphony In G Minor." Deems Taylor tells the story of and introduces his composition, "Circus Day." The program was apparently presented in two parts, as the recording after "Circus Day" is described as, "The Evening Show." Carrie Jacobs Bond sings her famous, "At The End Of A Perfect Day."
