The American Broadcasting System licensed the audio from the shows for release on AFRTS transcriptions for airplay to American Armed Forces overseas.  Over a hundred programs were licensed.  Radio Recorders did most of the transcription preparation that involved editing out all of the commercial content.  The opening music that often played softly under Bobby Troup’s introductory comments was also edited as he frequently would mention “brought to you by…” in the course of setting up the show and the guests.

Stars of Jazz garnered a huge following among Los Angeles jazz fans as word of the show spread to jazz buffs of all ages.  The local media provided ample coverage as well as seen in the collage of press notices below.


KABC purchased display ad space in TV Times to promote the program that initially aired every Monday night at 10:30 P.M.
