Breakdown

Synopsis: Suffering from a severe case of the blues, a young man gets the surprise of his life when “the greatest band around” pops out of his radio to cure what ails him. The show features joyful swing and bouncing be-bop tunes like “Let the Good Times Roll,” “Is You Is or Is You Ain’t My Baby” and “Choo Choo Ch’Boogie.”
