About the Author: Morris N. Young, M.D., is a practicing opthalmologist with a Ph.D. in research and history science. The scope was enhanced through close association with a variety of entertainment enterprises that were established by his attorney brother Barnard, who was in the forefront of the industry. Together the brothers assembled one of the great libraries of American secular music, which is now housed at the University of Illinois, Urbana.
Under the byline of John Howard, John C. Stoltzfus wrote the feature column Radio Raids for Metronome Magazine during the 1930s. This was based on interviews of radio executives, staff members, studio musicians and vocalists. Musical Courier, a weekly, engaged John as a concert reviewer.
For a time, as rhythm guitarist, John traveled with the Blue Knights Band. Equally adept with the harmonica, John was devoted to the chromatic harmonica as a solo instrument. As a journalist with the New York Daily News, John was employed in editorial promotion management. He directed production of the News-sponsored Harvest Moon Ball, organization of the All-City Chorus and Orchestra Concert at Lincoln Center and the section, Art in the News.
