|"...with this portion of Hear America Swingin', Stars in Jazz... Now, good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Fred Collins again, and it's my very pleasant task to introduce a new sound tonight, across our NBC lines on Hear America Swingin', with a unique sound in modern music, the sound of Charlie Parker, his inimitable alto saxophone,
and a brand new sound with strings, harp, and oboe. Starting off, Charlie Parker and Strings, from Birdland, and 'What is This Thing Called Love?'..."|

|"Yes, tonight from Birdland on Broadway, the jazz corner of the world, right here at 52nd Street and Broadway in the heart of New York City, we're sending greetings to the city where jazz began, and that's New Orleans, down Louisiana way. Loyola University and New Orleans have always had an outstanding interest
in all kinds of music, for instance the lovely Marguerite Piazza of our NBC Show of Shows is a New Orleans alumna. Then there's Charles Anthony of the Metropolitan Opera, and trumpet man Al Hirt, who's made a name for himself with many of the top bands in the nation. And of course Loyola University is a symbol of the great
educational tradition of the Jesuits, which goes back more than four hundred years. But we're interested in the lighter side of the American school and college life tonight -- as we salute Loyola University. So for collegians everywhere, and for students, alumni, and friends of Loyola University in particular...
Charlie Parker and Strings, now play 'Repetition'..." (Incomplete on Bird Box, Ember, etc.)|

|"While you're listening to these fine sounds in modern music on Hear America Swingin' on this Stars in Jazz session, this would be a good time to remind all of you... lovers of modern music, that a concert will take place here in New York City at Carnegie Hall on the 25th, and what an aggregation of musicians will be there.
Mr. Charlie Parker will be among them, Count Basie's Orchestra, the lovely Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Lester Young, the Modern Jazz Quartet, the Bill Davis Trio... If you're anywhere in the vicinity of New York, you certainly, for the sake of fine jazz, will want to see this wonderful program. Returning now to the music
of Charlie Parker and Strings, now here on Stars in Jazz on Hear America Swingin', from Birdland, 'East of the Sun'..." (Incomplete on Ember)|
