This extremely rare recording is of Mary Small performing her original song, “Thank You, Mr. President,” with the Glenn Miller Orchestra in honor of Franklin Roosevelt’s Birthday on January 30, 1942. The annual event was part of a March Of Dimes fundraising drive. Special thanks to J. David Goldin for preserving and providing us with this unique piece of American History.
