"Audiences have been delighted and entertained by this charming musical tale full of nostalgia and heart. Set during a live WNEW radio broadcast from the ballroom of the Roosevelt Hotel, When The Lights Go On Again follows The Moonlighters, an up and coming singing group trying to land a job with the legendary Glenn Miller band. Told through an array of songs from the 1940's, the musical paints the emotions of a country supporting the boys overseas and the sacrifices that war can bring on the home front. The new recording features both hit songs and some rarely heard gems from this unforgettable era, state press notes.

In addition to producing When The Lights Go On Again, Thoroughbred Records has also released Connie Pachl's "Coming Through" with guest artist Barry Levitt (TBR 101), Bill Daugherty's "Look To The Rainbow" with guest artist Margaret Whiting (TBR 102) and Broadway's own Nancy Anderson's "Ten Cents A Dance" with the Ross Patterson Little Big Band (TBR 103).
