Tonight's ' Milestones of Melody ' will consist entirely of compositions by that outstanding team Rodgers and Hart, who have been responsible for song hits almost beyond counting. Do you remember ' Dancing on the Ceiling ', ' Mountain Greenery ', ' Ten Cents a Dance ', ' On Your Toes ', ' The Lady is a Tramp' These are only a few of the tunes that have proved themselves worth remembering. You will hear them, and others as well, in the programme tonight. Although much of the work of Rodgers and Hart became famous in America, this country has been the scene of some of their greatest successes, particularly such contributions to C. B. Cochran shows as One Dam Thing After Another, Evergreen, and My Heart Stood Still.
