Garroway At Large (musical variety)

    (NBC Primetime, 1949 - 1951)

    [this nighttime variety show originated from Chicago, and
     was a forum for Garroway's laid-back personality and humor;
     Garroway had been a Chicago radio personality; this show
     preceded his stint on the Daytime NBC "Today" show, and
     may have been one reason he was known to Pat Weaver who
     originated the "Today" show]

Theme: "Sentimental Journey"

    [this piece -- which was the theme song of the Les Brown
     Big Band, and was long associated with Dave Garroway on
     radio and TV, was the first "Today Show" theme.]
     Composers: Lester ("Les") Brown (ASCAP), 
                Bud Green (ASCAP) and
                Benjamin ("Ben") Homer (ASCAP)
