      According to
      "During the mid-1940's, some of the biggest names in popular music became disc jockeys on WMCA. Duke Ellington and Tommy Dorsey played their own and others' records, announcer Andre Baruch and singer Bea Wain became "Mr. & Mrs. Music," and "Symphony Sid" Torin had an "all night, all frantic" jazz program starting in 1948."
