TOM GANNON
SCORES BEAT
Thomas .1. Cannon, the director of
the orchestra at I.oow'a Palace The
ater, believes he has slipped one over
on the town's music dealers?. He feels
convinced that he's scooped tiicm in
their own territory, as the reporters
say.
Gannon constantly keeps a weather
eye out for new musical selections,
and among the latest batch of new
Manhattan sons hits was a sheet of
"I Want a Daddy to Rock Me to
Sleep," the song hit of the Greenwich
Village Follies, now playing in New
York. Gannon tried the piece out
with the Palace or?-hestra and the
success of the production -vas almost
instantaneous. Within an hour of
the time the selection was added to
the Palace program patrons of the
theater were besiegintr the manager's
office for th<; name of the ?ong.
Within the next twenty-four hours
several V street music dealers hail
purchased seat? to the Palace show
to hear the piece, which was in in
tense demand by their patrons. A?
soon as the dealers heard the piere
they ? stocked up, and this ?wk you
can hear it played In half the cafas
and hotsls ?if Washington.
Director Gannon is a lover of des
ale music himself, and probably if he
had no publi?? to consult the only
music he would play would be classi
cal; but Gannon believes the people
as a whole like their music snappy,
and he believes in giving it to them.
