1. Master Of Ceremonies
Ernie "Bubbles" Whitman

2. AFRS Announcer
George Dvorak

3. Sources And Tentativeness Of The Personnel Listing
I have entered the personnel as shown on Richard S. Sears' V-Disks: A History And Discography. Following Sears' lead, the same personnel is found on Lotz and Neuert's Jubilee discography, though question marks are placed next to all the men's name, except for Paul's. Other sources omit Nordquist and Raskin altogether, listing instead Bob Meyer as the bassist and Hal Dean as the pianist.

4. Instrumentals By The Les Paul Trio
Also part of this episode are two instrumentals by the trio, “The World Is Waiting For A Sunrise” and “Clouds.”


1. James Accardi
2. California Eagle [Newspaper]
Wardell Gray discographer James Accardi has uncovered a brief review of shows no. 194 and no. 195. Published by the California Eagle on Thursday, May 9, 1946, it reads in part: “The program Jubilee from NBC, which is emceed by the personable Ernest Whitman, scored another tremendous hit last Monday when Mr. Whitman rounded up Earl “Fatha” Hines and orchestra, which scored heavily, Peggy Lee, blonde singer, the Les Paul Trio, Rickey Jordan, and the Town Criers for duty on the Armed Service program.”
