From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:23 pm on 19 June 2013

The Glenn Miller Orchestra is in New Zealand on a month long tour. Glenn Miller died at the height of his career in 1944 when his plane disappeared over the English Channel, and while most of the original members are gone, new musicans who have joined over the generations. Alan Cass is a cousin to the adopted children of Glenn Miller and his wife Helen. He is also the founder and curator of the Glenn Miller Archive at the University of Colorado.
