Session Details: 

Lord lists three separate entries with the same date, location, radio station and personnel, but repeats certain tunes like Broadway, Solitude and I Hear Music. I suspect this is because they were issued separately? Unless he has proof that there were some broacasts of those songs that were lost tracks, but then unique takes of the same songs, which were subsequently issued? Without any further documentation, we cannot say for sure. On certain issues, the untitled tracks are called "Benny's Bugle", which we are including here.
