Thanks a lot, Sorcha and Joe. I did not mean to question anyone's diligence; only curious about criteria. By the way, I don't think RODGER YOUNG is traditional; Levy gives the composer as PFC Frank Loess, of the Special Services Division of the Army, and first published in 1945. I thought I remembered hearing it on the radio earlier than that, but memories that go back that far can be v. untrustworthy.
