I'll have to take a listen, it is quite a good song.

Hi Modern Bing, Sorry I wasn't clearer, so I revised my opening paragraph above. 

As this isn't just a song, it's the whole movie story performed on radio!  Bing Crosby & Ann Blyth do the radio version of the movie story.  Movies back in the old days pre-video tapes and discs were actually performed on the radio, audio versions of the movie for people to listen to in their homes.   That's what we have here on Sounds Like Radio the radio version of the movie.

I shouldn't have assumed everyone was aware of this, you young whipper snappers (I wish I was still one) may never have heard of movies being performed on radio before.

Forgot to mention that this is from the radio show, Lux Radio Theater of September 26, 1949.  Every week Lux did a radio version of a movie and Cecil B. DeMille himself was host on most all of the episodes.

Re: Now You Can Also Hear The Emperor Waltz

Oh I've known about Lux Radio Theatre, I didn't realize you were meaning that, but it also makes more sense why Ann Blyth would be doing it since co-stars, or even stars would have be replaced on those shows, not all of them of course, but still. I'll have to allocate more time for this broadcast now haha.  I hope it is more enjoyable than Bing and Blyth's movie together "Top O' The Mornin'" which I am not particularly fond of, although it has it's moments.
