The likely organization is the C.B.S. Symphony Orchestra if they had not
been disorchestraed by then. I think Bernard Herrmann still had a weekly
conducting gig with them though the name of the program was changed from
time to time.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] ABC "Blue Network" Orchestra
Would anyone on the list have information regarding the ABC "Blue Network"
Orchestra that Beecham conducted in a series of weekly concerts in April,
1945? I know that ABC had by that time recently acquired the Blue Network
from NBC, but was it still using the NBC Symphony for these broadcasts, a
house pick-up orchestra, or some other ensemble? And, if a house orchestra,
where did the broadcasts originate? I've heard a bit of one of the
broadcasts, which has Milton Cross announcing. Thanks in advance for any
light that could be shed on this.
