Here is the music of Rudy Vallee during his first decade as a superstar. Rudy Vallee formed The Connecticut Yankees, a popular dance band, in the late 1920’s. This band was among the early groups to air nightly on radio while performing live at the Heigh-Ho Club with Vallee doing the vocals. His crooning style caught the fancy of the ladies and made him an overnight sensation and also the very first crooner over whom the women would ‘swoon’. Soon other romantic singing idols would followed in his footsteps including Bing Crosby, Russ Columbo and eventually Frank Sinatra, Perry Como and numerous others. But it all started with Rudy Vallee. He can take credit for discovering numerous hit songs including the ever-popular"As Time Goes B". Vallee’s other accomplishments include hosting the first variety show on radio, called The Fleischman Hour, which was one of the top programs for many years and one responsible for the discovery of a host of new stars.
