Sounds Familiar: 'Glow Worm'

Dave Beck

When you think of the tune "Glow Worm," the sounds of a big band, vocal harmonies and clever, flirtatious lyrics might come immediately to mind. It's a tune that epitomizes the Swing Era in music. Amanda Wilde is the host of "The Swing Years and Beyond" on KUOW, so she knows this tune very well. But Amanda recently discovered that "Glow Worm" didn't originate in the Swing Era. It has its roots in a German operetta that's more than 100 years old. KUOW's Dave Beck speaks with Amanda Wilde about another tune that Sounds Familiar.
