Hi Richard,

Thanks so much for your reply.

In the late Scott Schecter's excellent book on Garland, Judy Garland: the Day-by-Day Chronicle of a Legend, he mentions Garland's appearance on the radio broadcast, which would be the last one on which she sings live. If you go to the following online link, you can see his listing:

Thanks for your help. Finding this recording would be a real find for me.

All best.
