Thread Name: Tune Req: World War II music
Subject: World War II music
Someone told me to contact you concerning several old songs we are trying to find for a tribute to our World War II veterans for our school television station. I teach media at the school and am in charge of the project.

We have scanned approximately 70 old photographs and want to add appropriate music in the background. The music we are searching for is songs from the war era which were sung here in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. My mother remembers several, and sang the first lines of each. They included: "Silver Dew on the Bluegrass Tonight"
"Pearl Harbor was Bombed one Bright Sabbath Morning"
"Filipino Baby" Mother said there were a couple of others that were popular, but she couldn't think of them. Do you have these songs, or know how we might obtain them? We need them by the end of the week (on CD) because the program needs to air on Veterans Day (Nov. 11th).

Any help would be appreciated.
