My Year - 1942

1942 was the year Desert Island Discs and Duct Tape made their debut. It was the year the “Chattanooga Choo Choo” became the world’s first Gold Disc and the words to “White Christmas” were first heard. At the cinema, Bambi and Casablanca were box office hits as Paul McCartney, Cassius Clay and Aretha Franklin were born. All this set against the continuing backdrop of World War II.
